A CHRISTMAS WEDDING is a televised play, and it suffers from it. There are long, dialogue-heavy scenes with very little action, muffled sound when characters move away from centralized microphones, and blackouts and applause between every scene. As such, it's a difficult film to follow, and the heavy themes of family dysfunction make it a no-go for very young kids and iffy for teens, whose attention spans are likely to be tested here. There are some solid messages about working through conflict, being accountable for your actions, and forgiveness, but it's a long 80 minutes to glean those messages given this format.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
