Lightweight fluff.

Anyone remember "Last Christmas" (2019) - that really mediocre film with Henry Goulding and Emilia Clarke? Well, this attempt at seasonal fayre weighs in at around the same level. Aml Ameen, who appears to have done everything save make the cocoa on this is a American-based author whose book on Atlantis brings him home to London for Christmas - the scene of a messy family scenario two years earlier that saw him abandon girlfriend "Georgia" (Leigh-Anne Pinnock). Thing is, now he must return with his new American fiancée "Lisa" (Aja Naomi King) who knows very little about the former girlfriend, now an international singing star. What happens next is just a mess, sorry. Aside from quite a fun game of Jamaican dominoes (the same as any other style, just fuelled by Red Stripe) the rest of this is a series of unlikely coincidences and familial escapades that are really pretty unremarkable. There are a few set piece songs from Pinnock, who seems incapable of introducing any sort of key changes into her flat as a pancake singing and the usually characterful Marianne Jean-Baptiste looks very much like was going through the motions with the dreary and contrived script. It's pretty enough to look at, the production is fine, but otherwise this film has precious little to recommend it.

Predictable and boring

I give this 4/10 only because of the good cinematography. The film was so dull and lacking in entertainment value that I fell asleep for a time, fortunately. If you have the urge to see it I suggest you go before the end of the first week as it won't be there a second week.

Can I add that checking on the reviewers who have given this 10/10 I have found that,surprise surprise,many of them have only reviewed this film. Sets you thinking.

An Alright Festive Film

So, I've just come back from a screening of this & to be honest I wasn't expecting much from the preview I saw a few days ago & have to say my expectations were right.

The film follows a man who wants to introduce his fiance to his family & friends, but when a ex from the past comes back also, tensions & complications arise. Will it work out in the end?

I found the film to be alright, it's not amazing but it's ok. There's plenty of feel good cliches borrowed from not just festive films of it's caliber but from typical feel good films like Love Actually & Eat Love Pray. The story is alright, but done before & the characters are a little hard to distinguish from. Which, unfortunately makes the film somewhat messy when their sub story-lines are flying around the main one.

The pacing is good enough & the runtime is alright, if not a little long at 1 hour & 44 minutes. There was some humorous moments in the film also which was good. I have to admit there were a few snipes in dialogue that I didn't approved of nor did I feel were needed, the ones sniping at men that were added in for good measure i.e MaLe DoMiNaCe, HoW dO yOu KnOw If gOd WaS a MaN & the classic, tHeY (MeN) rUiN lIvEs. Classy, just classy. It's dialogue or scenes like that, that ruin films or let them down somewhat when they added in.

Overall, it's not a bad film, but it's a bit samey & uninspiring. It is alright though.

5/10.
