DECK THE HALLS (Theatrical Release USA 2006)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

Deck the Halls
—workable, holiday comedy—captures the essence of community holiday spirit and resolution of challenges adjusting to new neighbors who share different value systems. Matthew Broderick and Danny DeVito provide a series of good chuckles throughout the movie with a supporting cast that shines. Sometimes the contention between Broderick and DeVito characters gets a little out of hand and could be tweaked to provide increased entertainment value, but this film is definitely a tribute to the old aphorism “all’s well that ends well.” It’s great to see another good Christmas comedy.
