“Almost Christmas” is a lively comedy about a patriarch whose one wish is that for the upcoming Christmas Holiday the family all come together for the 5 Days leading up to Christmas. This will be the first Christmas without the Mother as she passed away earlier in the year. The family consists of 5 adult children, 3 grandchildren and 1 sister-in-law. The wish of the patriarch is that they are all able to get along under one roof without killing each other. As the children start to arrive at the family home the fireworks begin. The story unfolds from there…
The events and drama that unfold with this family are not uncommon in real life. Jealousy, Envy, Ambition, Adultery, Grief and Misunderstandings all take up residence at this family gathering. The movie has good and bad parts, but it is entertaining, thought provoking and at times corny.
“Almost Christmas” is better that a lot of Holiday comedy movies that have come before it. I think “Almost Christmas” is worth a look.
This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!
