Christmas movies like this are enough to turn one into a Grinch or at least make one wish that the filmmakers would get a visit from the Ghost of Christmas Future. Why it is so hard to make a decent Christmas comedy? Not every movie has to be on the level of A Christmas Story. A Home Alone or even a National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation will do the job. Nevertheless, year after year, we get Christmas comedies that not only aren't funny, but are more unpleasant than a lump of coal in a stocking. Deck the Halls (Or should that be Drek the Halls?) takes its place alongside Christmas with the Kranks and Surviving Christmas among the most unpleasant gifts of the season. Wrapped, they look okay, but once opened, you wish returning them was an option.
