A home for the holidays murder-mystery comedy - former high-school hero Billy (Adam Pally) comes back to his hometown expecting things to be like they used to. Instead, he finds all his friends have moved on, and his ex (Rachel Bloom) is dating the former high school outcast (Vincent Kartheiser).

I Must Have Missed the Comedy Here
2 May 2018 | by larrys3See all my reviews

Adam Pally stars here as Billy, who's returning to his hometown of Valley Stream, Long Island, after a number of years away for Thanksgiving and to pack his things, as his parents are selling the house and moving to Sante Fe. When he was in high school there he was extremely popular, but also a prankster and a bully, even known as the King of Valley Stream.

However, Billy soon finds out that his schtick of the past has worn thin and his friends have matured for the most part and moved on with their lives. The plot will mostly center on Billy's suspicions that he's seen his neighbor (Vincent Kartheiser), who's now dating Billy's ex-girlfriend (Rachel Bloom) ,commit a murder.

Although this movie received rather glowing reviews from pro critics, I really was hard pressed to find the humor here, and I wondered if we all watched the same film. To me, the humor just fell flat or was just mean-spirited or even cringe inducing at times.

All in all, maybe this is a demographic thing as others may have thought it was funny but I was happy when it finally ended.
