Surviving Christmas


survivingchristmasSuccessful but lonely ad executive Drew Latham (Ben Affleck) suffers a crisis and pays the family that currently lives in his childhood home to spend Christmas with him. A bizarre plot to be sure, although it does highlight the desperation lonely people might feel at Christmas. Affleckā€™s part cries out for a traditional comedian, say Jim Carrey, and the star is unable to make much of it. Few jokes are successful and the film has a darkness that just turns into negativity.

2004-U.S. 92 min. Color.Ā Directed byĀ Mike Mitchell.Ā Cast:Ā Ben Affleck (Drew Latham), James Gandolfini (Tom Valco), Christina Applegate (Alicia Valco), Catherine Oā€™Hara, Josh Zuckerman, Bill Macyā€¦ Udo Kier.
