The Christmas Project
I loved this sweet, funny movie about the holidays, the 80s, and doing what is right. There are many enjoyable and funny moments that had me laughing out loud. My 12 year old daughter watched it with me. Not only was she laughing out loud too, we both appreciated the message of kindness, even while being faced with adversity. A few 80s references she didn't understand, but the "New Coke" bit was hilarious. The parents in this movie were very funny. What the dad does with the family chicken was hysterical. "You can have your pick of the piece." One thing I wanted to see, was more of a change in the Hagbart kids. While all these nice "elf" gifts were being delivered, they were still stinkers, but watching the whole movie, I understood their circumstances more. All the characters were funny and brought their own special magic to the movie. Matthew was a doll, and I know my daughter has a new crush. We've seen Jacob Buster in many movies before, and he does a great job. As much as I loved all the characters, Earl stole the show for me. I loved his relationship with Matthew and one piece of advice Earl gave Matthew really struck home for me. Earl told Matthew,
"Only love will win the war."
