Happiest Season ★★★

'Happiest Season' is lovely and a perfectly fine holiday fare, but the movie lacks the sparks and charms to become something truly special. Clea DuVall’s direction just can’t find the right rhythm that allows the story to flow from laughs to romance to sentiment and heartache. Every cast member is a winner but none more so than Aubrey Plaza who steals every scenes she's in from right under her co-stars noses.
