[5.50/10] Almost Christmas (2016)

Almost Christmas (2016)

Quick Review: The all-black cast is difficult to fault, especially Mo'Nique, who's sassy performance steals the entire show, and is without a doubt this true mixed bag of a dramedy's biggest asset, but that being said, "Almost Christmas" is struggling a lot to find the right balance ironically being almost funny, almost touching, and, well, almost good. And it's the screenplay to blame, as it slips into sentimentality way too often, easily killing the fun bits in this potentially hilarious family reunion.
