Awkward pacing, humor, and characterizations undermine what might have been a pleasant family Christmas movie from Mexico. Despite good intentions, Grumpy Christmas falls flat. Characters over-react, especially veteran Angelica Maria as the easily-scandalized aunt, and situations feel forced. Short scenes are strangely spliced together. A character speaking only English to his Mexican friends (but seemingly understanding the Spanish just fine) comes across as odd. This film might play well with a local audience, but others can skip it.

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.
