    Surviving Christmas is pretty much your standard overly sentimental festive movie and, despite its fairly impressive cast that includes the late James Gandolfini and Ben Affleck, it is not a particularly memorable one.

    Watched at the right time of the year it's not all bad but it makes no attempt to do anything daring or remotely original and its hard to imagine anyone adding it to

    This ghastly comedy emits the subliminal whine of a sucking chest wound.
  2. Wrenches paltry giggles and cheap warmth from a screenplay that makes "Son in Law" seem like Sam Shepard. But wretched Affleck is the real liability.

    It's screen comedy at the end of its tether, Capra-corn gone rancid.
