REVIEW: ALMOST CHRISTMAS
An extended family reunites for the holidays and must survive their time at home in the hilarious Almost Christmas, arriving on Digital HD January 24, 2017 and on Blu-ray , DVD and On Demand on February 7, 2017 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. A new comedy from writer/director David E. Talbert (Baggage Claim) and producer Will Packer (Ride Along, Think Like a Man series), Almost Christmas tells the festive story of a beloved patriarch (Danny Glover, Lethal Weapon Series, Shooter) who asks his family for one gift this holiday season: to get along. If they can honor that wish and spend five days under the same roof without killing one another, it will be a Christmas miracle! With exclusive bonus content including a gag reel, Monique’s “Aunt May” unplugged, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, and more, Almost Christmas serves year-round laughs for all.
