Ethan, a practical older brother, and adorable Hallie, who knows how to charm her way out of a difficult situation, are intent on spending Christmas with their parents, Catherine and Michael, and grandmother Lillian.

  • All I want for Christmas is to never see All I Want for Christmas again. ( Read More )
  • All I Want for Christmas is passable kids entertainment thats neither great, nor shabby. ( Read More )
  • Clearly meant to be adorable, the kids crack jokes like screenwriters rather than children, and the plot is just as contrived as the self conscious dialogue. ( Read More )
  • Time Out

    What makes the film so nauseating is not that its badly acted or made, but that its motives are presented with such sledgehammer subtlety that even the youngest children would feel insulted by it. ( Read More )
  • When it comes to yuletide cheer, All I Want for Christmas ranks just under dead reindeer on the roof. ( Read More )
