Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Christmas Do-Over's strong cast brings fresh touches of humor to the well-worn premise of repeated chances at redemption. The overall package is a lighthearted comedy with a few laugh-out-loud moments, most of which show Kevin building on his knowledge of how events play out to wow the family with his apparent sensitivity and foresight. Adults and teens will chuckle at the humorously dramatic lengths to which he goes to escape his fateful situation and at his many blind attempts (and one moment of truth) to right past wrongs. Just be warned that there's lots of juvenile behavior played for laughs -- including sarcastic exchanges, practical jokes, and occasional fistfights.

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.
