While the first of these festive films gained popularity for it's creative and yet simple idea, which was well-executed, this sequel falls short. Your Christmas or Mine 2 tries to expand on the original premise and in turn loses sight of what made the first film so appealing. By bringing the families together, the dual narrative of two completely opposite families is lost and makes for a more conventional, standard Christmas film. The characters remain engaging and are in turn easy to root for. Both James and Hayley are sweet, and you can't help but want the best for them, and much of that comes from the likability of Butterfield and Kirk. But sadly that's not quite enough to save this film from tedium, and it just struggles to truly stand out and shine in a way the first film did.
