Oh, the joy of family. A new comedy from writer/director David E. Talbert (Baggage Claim) and producer Will Packer (Ride along, Think Like a Man series), Almost Christmas tells the festive story of a beloved patriarch who asks his family for one gift this holiday season: to get along. If they can honor that wish and spend five days under the same roof without killing one another, it will be a Christmas miracle. Share the holiday love, laughs, and charm with an all-star cast including Danny Glover, Mo’Nique, JB Smoove, Gabrielle Union, and Omar Epps.

Critics Consensus: While far from the worst holiday dramedy audiences could hope for, Almost Christmas isn't distinctive enough to prompt a visit to the theater -- or annual yuletide viewings.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Almost Christmas is an all-star ensemble holiday movie (stars include Danny Glover, Gabrielle Union, and more) about a dysfunctional family celebrating their first Christmas after a sad loss. Although it centers on a family with three school-aged grandchildren, it's not really for kids. Mature themes include adultery, drug dependency, and grief, and language includes words like "s--t," "ass," "bitch," and more. On the sex front, there's an affair between a married man and a woman he barely knows. Adults drink, but not overly so, and one character uses illegally obtained painkillers. Still, in the end the movie offers a positive message about forgiveness, family closeness, and the power of a strong legacy.
