This movie was released at the wrong time, back when Affleck was having his career on the down (fuck you Jennifer Lopez), and automatically it was panned. But watch it, its actually hilarious.
Full of one liners and slapstick comedy of Christmas Vacation similarities, Surviving Christmas is always one of my favourite Christmas movies. Affleck is brilliant as Drew Latham, an eccentric millionaire who rents a family for Christmas. Remember, this movie was done mostly on improv and its hilarious. How can this not be loved more?
Surprising cameo from Jen Morrison also made me smile. I couldn't remember her in this at all.
Easily passed on, but it shouldn't be ignored. Great fun viewing.
