Movie Almost Christmas – 2016 Review, Cast, Rating


Director: David E. Talbert

Writer:  David E. Talbert

Stars:  Kimberly Elise, Omar Epps, Danny Glover

The movie is all about a dysfunctional family trying to celebrate their first Christmas after a great loss. The movie consists of all talented stars like Smoove,Mo’Nique, Danny Glover, Gabrielle Union, and many more. The outline of the movie is that dad is secretly selling the house, Evan is taking painkillers, Lonnie is a womanizer- all the actors have done justice to their character making the audience to feel the movie. Even though the movie revolves around three grandchildren, still is not the one to be watched with kids as it contains some adultery stuff. The adultery stuff includes use of slang language, drug addiction, and inappropriate sexual relationship. There is an affair between a married man and an unknown lady. Although the adult drinks are not shown too much still the illegal use of pain killer is shown. In spite of all these stuff the movie is a treat to watch as it is all about the relationship between siblings, the rivalry developed, emotional dependence, and nostalgia. The sweetest part is the effort made by Glover to perfect his wife’s signature dish. The positive message by the movie is, it make you realize the importance of forgiveness, family closeness, and the power of a strong legacy in one’s life
