The Christmas story that you want to avoid...
21 April 2017 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

When I sat down to watch "Christmas With the Anderssons" it was part of a Christmas movie marathon together the family. However, this movie turned out to be one of the least entertaining and it was quickly turned off again, because it was just absurdly inappropriate and ludicrous.

We managed to suffer maybe 20 minutes or so through the Christmas ordeal that is "Christmas With the Anderssons" before we threw the towel into the ring out of sheer boredom and lack of entertainment value from the result of director Michael Feifer.

The characters in the movie had the charisma and appeal of wet cardboard cut-out characters. They were essentially every bit as useless and pointless as the script and storyline turned out to be. And they were characters that you just didn't connect with on any level.

As for the jokes and situations in the movie, well they were every bit as rigid and mundane as the characters turned out to be.

Regarding the acting in "Christmas With the Anderssons", well I can't claim to remember a single of the people in the movie. And I believe it was not the acting talents themselves, but the fact that they had absolutely nothing to work with in terms of script, storyline and characters.

This is definitely not the stuff that Christmas classics are made of, and I have no intention to returning to this movie to finish it at any point in time. This movie just wasn't worth it in any possible way.
