"Holidate" knows it's hitting every branch as it falls down the cliché tree. Does that soften the landing? Nope.

How many gatherings will it take before these reluctant beaus admit to their affection? Better to bail early.

Predictability doesn't have to be a sin when it comes to the often paint-by-the-numbers world of romantic comedy, but this awkward combination of expectation and disdain for it make for a film only fleetingly worthy of celebration.

Holidate does not have a single authentic moment, appealing character, or genuine laugh.

Holidate distinguishes itself only through its reliance on boorish slapstick, exaggeration and vulgarity.

Like so much of Netflix's quantity over quality output, Holidate is broad, unsubtle, and seemingly designed to be half-watched, phone in hand. Yet within that framework, it finds a unique comedic spark that keeps it zipping along.

"Holidate" won't change your mind about the tread-worn challenges of romantic comedies, but its leads leverage their charms nicely.

It's not your typical romantic comedy, and it's the type of Christmas movie that fits more in the National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation camp than that of the Hallmark channel movies and those like them.
