Till the Last String is Hung

Matt Frewer and Ryan Grantham were childhood friends until they fell out over a competition in high school. Now, many years later, they find themselves neighbors and in a fresh competition over who will win the town's Christmas decoration competition with the prize a check for five thousand dollars.

As this seasonal comedy wended its course on the Hallmark Channel, I was pleased to see a movie that did not feature Santa Claus. However, even more, I was pleased to see Matt Frewer in a comic turn, as his and Grantham's competition becomes more and more cartoon-like, eventually drawing in their entire families.

One of these days, I would like to see one of these movies end with utter destruction, perhaps with a mushroom cloud over the remnants of the neighborhood; there is something about Mr. Frewer that strikes me as very Wile E. Coyote. However, I can't blame the film makers for going with a more conventional happy ending. The result is a very pleasant couple of hours.

This Bulb Enlightens-Battle of the Bulbs ***

Whimsical tale of two neighbors- the guys were friends years ago in another place, but they had a falling out and haven't seen each other in years. Now, they find themselves as neighbors, living across the street from one another. Naturally, one has a son and the other a daughter so you know that there will be some teen romance involved.

One has always engaged in having the nicest holiday decorations for each year's contest. The other decides to rival him in this and eventually the wives, who had been amenable at first, become bitter towards each other as well.

Hallmark shows its traditional family holiday spirit by ending the comedy on a positive note-both guys put their differences aside to aid an elderly lady neighbor on the verge of losing her home. It's really in the tradition of the holiday and this enhances the film.

Some good comedy routine here.

Deck the Home, Alone.......

Bob Wallace makes sure to go all out every year on Christmas decorations so that he can have the brightest and most festive house in his neighbourhood.

This year, he notices that his new neighbour, and his former best friend, has put up an even brighter and more lavish display.

The fight is on when they declare war for the best Christmas decoration display in the neighbourhood........

Its obvious that this is a TV remake of Deck The Halls, starring the bloke from Home Alone, hoping that people hadn't seen the former, but recognised Stern, or possibly Frewer from The Taking Of Beverly Hills.

And it's all predictable stuff, nothing you haven't seen before, and it won't be surprising to see a dozen more of these types of Christmas films in the next couple of years.

Why? Because they are all perfunctory, and have a lovely message, and they do the trick, despite the fact that the child actors are face punchingly awful.

Stern and Frewer are okay, it's not funny, but its short and not offensive in the slightest.
