A cliché Christmas movie is actually a pleonasm. That is no different here. There is certainly no shortage of corniness and predictability. All in all, a nice watch for the holidays without being anywhere above the genre average.

I read here that viewers were bothered by the racism. Well, quite a loaded term, I stick to xenophobia and the urge to maintain one's own traditional values, then you are simply less open to other things. But it is clear that it sometimes becomes painful. It surprises me and it only seems to me to be a cinematic fact that future parents-in-law have never seen or heard anything in advance from their future child-in-law. Do you immediately get an engagement, well...

They then try to be funny with miscommunication and painful situations. It's a shame that the painful overtakes the humor. The fight with Santa Claus was the low point. To finish, you also get the traditional breakup before things get back to normal, even with the in-laws. Well.
