During Christmas for me, means tons of misadventures with my big-ass family! Yes, I am blessed but those who come from a big family understand how difficult it could be when all these different personalities are under one roof after a long time! Okay, I’m going to stop using the exclamation mark now.
Well anyways, I had a point to this, okay – the plot of this movie circulates around these Christmas misadventures when the eldest son, played by Mulroney, brings home a girl. YES. This bringing home your girlfriend/boyfriend can be some heavy stuff especially if they’re uptight (played by Parker). On top of all of that, his intentions for bringing her home is so that he can propose to her with a cherished heirloom ring. That’s the trigger, it just kicks off from there really.
If you’re like me and love a good old family drama (makes you feel sane about your own) and who also enjoys movies like The Big Wedding, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, My Best Friend’s Wedding, The Wedding Planner and The Wedding Singer – this one will be for you!
