Overview

Directed by Mike Mitchell, Surviving Christmas finds Drew Latham Ben Affleck uneager to spend another lonely Christmas in his own home. Longing for holidays past, Drew travels to his childhood home intending to relive the experience of a family Christmas -- unfortunately, his family no longer lives there. This represents only a small snafu to Drew, who offers the Valco patriarch and his wife Sopranos star James Gandolfini and Catherine O'Hara a huge amount of money if they consent to pretend they are his parents and that he is a cherished member of the family. This entails participating in Latham family traditions, such as Christmas tree selection and crowded holiday shopping excursions. Though the Valcos reluctantly go along with Drew's requests, Alicia, their eldest daughter, arrives at home and refuses to comply with her "brother's" wishes. ~ Tracie Cooper

    Stupid? Yep... Funny? Yep...

    Agree - the movie IS pretty stupid. It's still funny. Funny in "don't have to think about it" way. Not all movies should be thought provoking. Some should be just for giggles.

    Not funny

    The movie was stupid and senseless, and Ben Affleck tried to make it funny, but it wasn't.
