A MERRY FRIGGIN’ CHRISTMAS (Carmel International Film Festival (CIFF) Carmel by the Sea, California USA 2014)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.1|5.0 Stars ììì

A Merry Friggin’ Christmas
 is a film festival movie with a limited theater release in the United States. It’s a depressing, visual portrayal of familial hatred, disrespect, chronic alcoholism, abandonment, betrayal, alienation, and complete dysfunction at a Christmas family gathering. The story’s thin storyline complicates its mediocre attempt to entertain. Definitely not an uplifting holiday watch, the film contains very little to smile about.

Maybe. This movie leaves the audience with very little to smile about.
