Matthew Broderick must be the most lethargic actors working today. I don't blame him for not caring though, this isn't a film to get passionate about. Danny DeVito's likability is the only thing going for this film that on the whole could have been good if only they hadn't gone c...

Deck the Halls is a very sweet but edgy christmas film thats kept alive by its wonderful cast and witty humour. It's not overly bad as everyone says it is.

"There glows the neighborhood"
Two neighbors have it out after one of them decorates his house for the holidays so brightly that it can be seen from space.
