Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

This predictable holiday romance lacks chemistry or much real emotion, but it's pleasant enough. Some of the cultural touchstones in Christmas with You feel very real-to-life, like the family's blending of Spanish and English or the abuela's insistence that guests eat. Others feel a little heavy-handed, like the slow-mo tamale-making that's meant to advance the main characters' relationship. Angelina's obsession with her weight comes across as unhealthy and outdated.

Two supporting actors leave an impression. Zenzi Williams has some great knowing looks as Angelina's personal assistant. We will probably see more of Deja Monique Cruz, who gives a charming performance as the daughter about to celebrate her quinceañera.
