The holidays are known for spending time with family, reminiscing on hilarious memories of the past, and food… lots of food. This holiday season is special due to countless list of movies pertaining to real life problems. Consider adding “ALMOST CHRISTMAS” as it shows what some families may deal with during the holidays. Here are five reasons why it’s one of the best films this year!
1. Get Into The Holiday Spirit with Almost Christmas
As Christmas rolls around the corner, there is no better way to start getting into the holiday spirit a little early than with this film. Hitting theaters on November 11th, this movie dishes out just the right amount of sweet potato pie and comedic family problems to get you ready for Christmas 2016! It shows that every family isn’t perfect. They go through adversity and learn how to be tough about it, like this film.
2. The Star Studded Cast
There is no better gift this holiday season than getting to see your favorite Hollywood stars come together on the big screen! Each of the cast members hold their own on the comedy front, from Danny Glover to Gabrielle Union to Mo’Nique to JB Smoove – and as they come together in this holiday film, the audience literally laughing out loud from beginning to end! Heck maybe Jessie T. Usher might get into fights as well.
3. It’s A Family Affair!
Like Mo’ Nique says, “nothing says the holidays quite like family” and we couldn’t agree more! With the holidays quickly approaching, there is no better time than to make amends and build relationships within the family. “ALMOST CHRISTMAS” shows just the right amount of family dysfunctionality without sugarcoating it, and demonstrates just how we can overcome these problems so long as family sticks together.
4. The Queen of Comedy is Back
With her amazing roles in ‘Besse’ and ‘Steppin’, we were waiting for her return to the big screens. Now, more fabulous than ever (as if that was even possible), Mo’Nique is back as she portrays America’s favorite and hilarious aunt, with no boundaries, no filter, and nothing but her bottle of liquor! Expect Mo’Nique to steal some of the spotlight away from the stars.
5. Almost Christmas Is More Than Just A Holiday Film…
With so many holiday films around the corner, “ALMOST CHRISTMAS” breaks the cliche of your average Christmas movie. Director David E. Talbert has brilliantly incorporated the element of progressing towards bettering the community through the theme of Christmas. He’s turning the film into an important social commentary on giving back to the community. This film also demonstrates the importance of overcoming some of life’s toughest journeys with the help of family.
