Father Christmas is Back (2021) Film Review

The Christmas family (yup, that’s their surname, although that wasn’t apparent until about halfway through the film) are all convening at the stressed-out sister’s house. One sister is a socialite who brings a different man each year, the other is young and… actually, I barely remember she exists. Mum is secretly having fun times with the uncle, and the dad’s been gone for ages. Until now…

It’s a big name cast… Elizabeth Hurley, Caroline Quentin, John Cleese, Kelsey Grammar… but it’s a massive stinker of a movie. I hadn’t thought I’d dislike a film more than A Castle for Christmas, but I really did. Just… ugh. But, there was a family karaoke night at the pub, so it met at least one of the requirements for a Christmas film.
