Not impressed with closeted-to-family film

In a burst of Christmas spirit, Harper invites her girlfriend Abby to come home with her for Christmas. Having previously lied to Abby that she is out and her parents are accepting of their relationship, Harper introduces Abby to her family as her orphan roommate.

This underlying-dysfunctional upper-class family has a father who is a conservative politician running for mayor, a mother who tries for perfection, 2 other sisters competing for the parents' love, one of whom is married with kids. There is also a still-single former boyfriend Conner, who mother tries to foist on Harper, and Harper's 1st girlfriend, whom she betrayed. The standout character, however, is Abby's male friend John, played by Emmy-winner Dan Levy (in a supporting role, though IMDB lists him 1st), who is supportive of Abby, even if he is anti-heteronormative.

There are too many holes in the plot. I have trouble believing that, in the big house, they don't have a guest bedroom, and so Abby displaces the grandkids from the room they normally occupy when visiting. I don't believe all the rounds of attempts to take a family Christmas portrait. I don't believe that mother would invite Conner to a restaurant dinner without pre-notifying the restaurant, and Abby gets humiliated by being given a shorter chair - or that the taller Harper would not insist on switching chairs. As all this plays out, I start to wonder if Harper deserves Abby, and whether Abby should follow an alternate path.

I saw this at an online preview courtesy of the Inside Out LGBT film festival, and was happy at being able to rewind and pause to read the text messages. Be warned: you have to read quick!
