Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

Just Another Christmas has its heart in the right place, with its emphasis on enjoying the moments we have with loved ones, rather than on wasting time on unimportant distractions. But the script delays those wonderful sentiments far too long with silliness and clichés, and viewers who might enjoy the movie's most touching moments at the end may bail out long before those enjoyable moments arrive. Much of the first half is a series of repetitive jokes delivered badly as if by stand-up comedians mugging and over-reacting. The movie's time loop gimmick gets old fast and, with little originality to draw us in, it's a hard slog through to the film's sweet, worthwhile ending. Viewers who give it a chance may be pleasantly surprised.

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.
