Surviving Christmas

Surviving Christmas (2004)
When life's not going exactly the way he wants, Drew (Ben Affleck) decides it's time to go back to his childhood home for Christmas and recapture the magic and idyll of his past. The only problem? His relatives don't live in that house anymore, so reliving his glory days will be much more complicated than he expected. First, he must convince the family (headed by James Gandolfini and Catherine O'Hara) who call the place home to humor him.
My Two Cents: Asinine premise? Check. Affleck acting smarmy? Check? Can Gandolfini pull off comedy? Uh, check. Color me surprised.

NetFlix Rank: Liked It
IMDB Rank: 6/10
