CANDY CANE LANE (Released on Video On Demand World-Wide 2023)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì 

Candy Cane Lane—good concept—goes into a slump due its cliched holiday theme of competing neighbors for best holiday decorations and the introduction of a wayward elf. Eddie Murphy is a better actor than this story allows him to be. While the stage settings have a type of uniqueness, they do not compensate for the weak storyline.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. It is a Christmas film that lacks originality.
