Goofs

When Ethan, Iassac, and Chris are going to see Betsy in the hospital and they find Mr. Greens car you can see in the background where they did not completely snow the ground where there should be snow. This film was shot in the middle of August in New York City so all snow had to be created. See more »

Molotov of Druggery and Mazel-Tovely Awesome good time
24 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I was a teen I warned everyone I knew to look after their relationships: parents, siblings, children, lovers, and especially friends. Nothing in this life lasts forever. The only constant - is CHANGE. Blah blah blah.

People move on with their own agendas and perceived roles in their lives and this puts a great strain on previous interactions that we often take for granted after our formative educational years. Friendships are usually the most likely things to suffer, fade, and disappear once people grow up. This movie is a fun , veiled tale of what we ALL must go through with regards to those changes ,and I sympathize with it, fore tis a central part of the human condition.

There's laughs, spills, not too many thrills, or chills, though for a xmas movie, thats just mein penchant for terrible har har making. But some people do these types of things, no gender analysis needed to ruin a good time. HOWEVER...

The film will of course appeal a tad more to the male perspective, but honestly when you look beyond Seth Rogan's ever intentionally placed molotov of druggery and mazel tovly awesome beard, and the strangely balding J G Levitt and their mysterious drug dealer associate, we remember that we all go through the same things, regardless of our individual attitudes, perspectives and the colors they take on. A good "holy" season watch when your bored and want some entertainment. Seasons Greetings and keep your heat beating.

Pe@ce ^~^
