Peter (Michael Urie) has been perpetually single, much to the annoyance of his entire family who believe he can only be happy when he has a love that he can bring home for Christmas. To try to fool them, he brings home Nick (Philemon Chambers) his best mate (who is clearly a bit in love with Peter). But Nick immediately gives the game away, and Peter’s mother sets him up on a blind date with a handsome and lovely bloke, James (Luke Macfarlane) and things seem to be going well. But what would a Christmas romantic comedy be without family meddling and some singing in a local bar?
I quite enjoyed this for the silly Christmas romp that it was. Plus with Kathy Najimy, Barry Bostwick and Jennifer Coolidge supporting… hard not to like, really. Far too many in the family, I still don’t know who were sisters, who were aunts, which kids belonged to who, but it didn’t matter. This was fun.
