    It is a better option than the third "Santa Clause."

    Filled with forced yuletide cheer and mixed messages about the true meaning of Christmas, this loud and obnoxious holiday comedy boasts a fine cast and little else.
  3. In this year's lump of coal, Matthew Broderick is the control freak who lives for toasty yuletide cheer, and Danny DeVito is the vulgar pest who wants his holiday lights seen from space. The dueling-neighbor crankfest is blah.

    A lifeless, workmanlike comedy conceived to provide holiday shoppers an inoffensive respite from the mall.
  5. Can be described as whatever is the opposite of a Christmas classic.
  6. 25
    When it comes to comedy, Deck the Halls is remarkably tedious.
  7. 0
    There isn't an earned moment of uplift or laughter in the movie. Everything in it is prefab.

    The cast is so awesome in this movie! The jokes are so savage and I just L.O.V.E. every part of this movie, it is one of those films that you can just watch over and over and not get bored! An awesome movie that really puts you in the mood for Santa to come! Expand

    Unlike Christmas with the Kranks, this movie has lame jokes and the story is an incredible mess. There is not a lot to reccommend. Little charm or fun in this holiday movie. Expand
