    I love this movie it really puts you in the Christmas spirit. This is so amazing and has loads of up and down moments when you end up laughing out load at those two fools! This movie boasts an amazing cast with a fantastic story line and such funny moments. Matthew Brodrick is amazing and you really have to watch this one guys!

    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!

    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.

    Starts out somewhat interesting, and DeVito is always good--he could read the phone book and make it interesting--but, he can't overcome the horridly cliched script full of trite, heartstring tugs. Broderick seems to sleepwalk it, and looks a tad bloated.

    What the hey! It's a zany Christmas movie and you'll enjoy it if you enjoy zany Christmas movies. Predictable but in a good sort of way.

    Arguably the most important work from a major studio this year. "Deck the Halls" skewers commercialism, organized religion, familial dysfunction, pop psychology, and the modern industrial condition ... and that's just the first reel. Broderick's manic vulnerability hasn't been put to such good use since "Max Dugan Returns," and DeVito is charming and smug all at once.

This will surely replace "It's A Wonderful Life" and "A Christmas Story" for required Christmas viewing. Expand

    Though DeVito and Chenoweth bring a rough plebeian charm to the proceedings, it's nothing short of tragic to see the great Ferris Bueller relegated to grimacing straight man.
  2. Nobody expects every holiday film to ascend to classic status; in fact, we're happy to let most fade from memory as soon as the decorations are taken off the trees. We can, however, demand they live up to a certain level of fun, thereby allowing parents to watch along with their kids without plotting the most direct route to the exit.

    Like a fatally snarled string of Christmas lights, Deck the Halls promises holiday cheer but delivers only frustration.
