Anxious to fill one of her scrapbooks with a loving Christmas memory, Mom forces holiday cheer on her spiteful, dysfunctional family. Unmediated by a comic style, her attempts come across as desperate and painful to watch. Abusive Dad relishes her sadness and the kids are too preoccupied with hurting each other to care. Long jokeless stretches end with Mom sobbing during a slow fade to black. If this is supposed to be a stab at drama, it's an eerily unsympathetic one. Apparently siding with Dad, director Justin Howard seems to find it all funny. I found it nothing short of malicious. —Dan Jakes
