plezWorld Reviews "This Christmas"
My family and I went to the movies last night. We went to see "This Christmas," a family movie for the holidays.
The premise is pretty simple: the Whitfields gather for the Christmas holiday for the first time in several years. It is a movie that is suitable for the entire family, with mild language and some sexual innuendo.
Check out the "This Christmas" site here.
plez sez: all of the family members bring their baggage along for the ride. it was a fun, family drama that explored the intricate family dynamics that affect us all. just about every dynamic was explored in a very real way, but each was explored with the help of a well developed plot and three dimensional characters.
loretta devine glows as the family matriarch and this was the first time that i've seen teen heart throb chris brown in a movie where he wasn't killed off in the first 10 minutes: "stomp the yard... but he does sing in this one... and he's a very good singer. you will also note that chris brown's brother (columbus short) in this movie was also his brother in "stomp the yard."
there was something for everyone in this flick... i highly recommend that you add it to your holiday fare.
and you must stay for the "family movie" AFTER the movie... it was the MOST FUN i've seen in a flick in a long time!
