Deck The Halls

Christmas, slapstick comedy about two warring neighbours embattled over the impressiveness of the lights and decorations adorning their homes.

Steve Finch (Broderick) is a family man and the self-proclaimed 'Christmas guy' in their New England town. But his new neighbour Buddy (DeVito) has a dream: he wants his house to be seen from space. Thus begins a rivalry for the Christmas spirit, and the obligatory house decorating. Through their fierce competition, they and their families learn the reason for the season.

There's a reason why this is the time of year for family films: We need a movie to give us a couple of hours' break from our families. "Deck the Halls" does the job fine, and although Aunt Mabel is going to warm to its macramé and jello-mold spirit a lot more than nose-pierced Nikki, it is a better option than the third "Santa Clause."...

The Christmas spirit, whatever that might be, has been reduced to a third-act deus ex machina, a jolly cloud that descends from the heavens to save squabbling grinches from themselves...
