Oops.. the Turkeys arrived in time for ChristmasBy PaulaWestwood (397 reviews) from Ashton-Under-Lyne , 03 Dec 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Ermmmm this says Christmas about as much as the Easter Bunny does I'm afraid, every year there seems to be one or two outstanding christmas films, and one sure fire turkey, and this is the latter. Based around an African American family getting together, forgiving, forgetting and tying all those loose family ends together to bring festive cheer and togetherness. Unfortunately it has too many cliches, too little humor and just nowhere near enough Christmas about it. I guess that just about wraps this one up, if your going to treat yourself to anything this year, dont add this to your list, as it is worse than a boxing day hangover, sorry to say. Not recommeded.

Just my cuppa tea!By Deenie76 (59 reviews) from London , 15 Jan 2012I loved this. Just my cuppa tea! Admittedly, it is a little cheesy in places and it's not the sort of film that wins awards BUT, the cast is amazing (and ridiculously beautiful) and I'm a sucker for a good Soul Food - type film. Loved it so much that I kept the disc a little longer than usually and watched it three times before sending it back.
Review: This ChristmasBy Cairo (9 reviews) from London , 01 Jan 2012A very down to earth film exploring the 'ordinary' and complicated web of family life.This is performed with humour and deals with the more intricate and darker side with a mixture of grace and believability. The characters give an excellent performance.
On the down side and like a lot of Hollywood movies it finishes with the standard happy ending but the film is still worth watching.
This Christmas...By sdfilm (125 reviews) from Oxon , 20 Dec 2011...give it a go, but don't expect too much!!
Idris Elba is waaaaaaaaaaaaay too good for this movie. The scenes are cheesy and very predictable, but the cast is good. Although with the large number of 'famous faces' you would expect something better.
Dull as dish water!By a customer , 29 Nov 2011We all sat down to watch this and ended up turning it off after 30 mins. The film was slow and dull and we were all pleased when we turned it off! Not worth the wait.
Merry christmas!!!!By asha-lee (5 reviews) , 20 Aug 2011This film is watchable. The cast is good but some of the acting is poor & some of the scenes were cheesy, but the funny scenes that it contains helps to make this film enjoyable to watch.
