Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

In spite of its conventional Christmas message, uneven performances, and a routine story about one-upping farcical corporate greed, this comedy offers some heartwarming moments. The premise is thin -- giving up a cold mansion filled with goodies to move to a lovely middle-class home with "only a six-foot Christmas tree" wouldn't be a tragedy for most. And a last-minute emotional reveal is a convenience at best. Still, there are few African American family movies and Holiday Rush should appeal to all ethnicities, so it will find an audience.
