Is It Any Good?
This movie is a vapid retread of a tired old plot that's unlikely to appeal to kids. A nice girl meets a crude and angry guy, gets to know the true person beneath his snarky layer of protection, and falls deeply in love with him, all in 89 minutes. This DJ's snark won him high ratings in L.A. but earns the wrath of his new co-host in rural Colorado. "You're smug, crude, and use people's lives to get a cheap laugh. We don't do that on my show," says the psychology PhD to the new guy. But, oops, she says it into a live mic and the broadcast conflict raises her show's ratings, too. Naturally, she is shocked when he quotes Christian scripture to help cue a kid who has forgotten her lines in the Christmas pageant, a plot device used to humanize the demon from the Big City. So expect mention of "lying in a manger," "glory to God," and "a multitude of heavenly hosts." Because Naughty & Nice was made for television, there are many blackouts for ads.
Did we miss something on diversity?
