Simon Woods’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is a Christmas movie you can catch on netflix right now. It is a Jonathan Taylor Thomas (remember him?) vehicle about a young guy away at school travelling across the country to make it home by Christmas eve dinner and all the obstacles along the way. Jessica Biel gives a good performance as his estranged girlfriend. There are some unbelievable plot contrivances, and some surprisingly adult humor and references for a family comedy, but Jonathan Taylor Thomas really was a charismatic enough performer to build a movie around. This is one of the better Christmas movies on netflix right now.
