Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

CHRISTMAS CRUSH has some decent elements: an enthusiastic cast, lots of impromptu singing, and a pleasant throwback feel. It folds holiday spirit into a mash-up of Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, Clueless, and Mean Girls. But these status-obsessed characters don't have enough heart, nor do the leads have enough chemistry, to make this feel like more than an imitation. There is a grounding performance from Marilu Henner as a positive older adult character imparting wisdom about being a good person and some nice messages about what it means to be good friends -- and a true success -- but those lessons come too late in the movie to feel sincere.
