Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays ★★★

I didn't know someone could rival Bill Pullman in While You Were Sleeping but then Dylan McDermott showed up in lumberjack plaid. Even the awful mullet is *chef's kiss*. Otherwise, it's another fine example of me trying to forget the inadvertent gay vibes Holly Hunter exudes, and a sweet film about the usual fare of spending the holidays with an insanely dysfunctional family. The script's quite messy that it's tough to tell where the characters are coming from emotionally and see those relationships take off, but the performances are charming. And, there's something about the ending that made me want to hold in as many tears as I could. I was glad to find this on Amazon Prime when I did and hope to add it to movies to enjoy during the holidays.
