What's not to love about Christmas!?! Well, the LGBT-themed Christmas movie for one. Over the last few years production companies have been cashing in on the pink dollar/pound/euro...with pitiful success and even worse scripts!
This is an exception - phew. But, not entirely...it's still a sickly sweet, sugar-coated parade of cliché followed by cliché - what sets this film apart and a few rungs above its peers is...the cast.
The ever-watchable Michael Urie commits to his role and exudes his boyish, rather scatty charm all over the place...keeping everything family-friendly and cheek-tweakingly cute.
Jennifer Coolidge is just a little too conservative and too under-used...which is a pity. But, hey, it's Christmas...it's all about toeing the line rather than crossing it. Oooh...it would have been an entirely different film if they had crossed the line!
C'mon Christmas LGBT-theme film-makers...take a risk, cross the line!
Desperate to avoid his family's judgment about his perpetual single status, Peter convinces his best friend Nick to join him for the holidays and pretend that they're now in a relationship.
