A Merry Friggin' Christmas


It's been a long time since I've seen a Christmas movie as bad as A MERRY FRIGGIN' CHRISTMAS. What a colossal waste of talent!

Joel McHale stars as Boyd Mitchler, a Clark Griswold knock off who treasures family traditions and is determined to give his family the perfect holidays that his father Mitch (Robin Williams) never gave him as a child.

Joel and his wife Luann (Lauren Graham) are invited to his his parents house, where all sorts of holiday hijinks ensue involving his mother (Candice Bergen), brother (Clark Duke) and sister (Wendi Mclendon-Covey).

Now normally all those stars above are very funny people. VERY funny! But even their comedy timing can't save this horrible screenplay and unfunny shtick.

When Boyd and Luann realize they have left their son's presents at home, Boyd, his brother and his Dad load up the truck and attempt to drive all the way to Chicago and back Christmas eve before the kids wake up.

This is truly an awful movie.

At one point, our road trio thinks they have hit and killed a hobo in the road and they start having a conversation about how to chop up the body to hide it. You will just shake your head.

It wants to be "Bad Santa" and "Christmas Vacation" and "Home Alone" but just ends up being crap.

It's only 79 minutes long (plus 9 MINUTES of credits to stretch to 88!) and it feels hours longer.

There are no laughs, just painful embarrassment as our cast realizes they have signed on for a real holiday dog. Williams looks especially aware of how bad this really is and the three power female comedians are given very little to do, what a waste.

It's only appropriate to review this Christmas turkey on Thanksgiving weekend and it give a giant lump of coal and an F.
