Movie Review: The Christmas Project

Review * Giveaway
The Christmas Project

About the Film:

Even with Christmas around the corner, for the Buckley boys, payback almost always wins out over brotherly love. That is until the four brothers join forces against a common adversary – the Hagbarts – the meanest bullies at their school. But now Mom has decided that the Buckley family is going to “Elve” the Hagbarts this year for Christmas. The Christmas Project is a heartwarming comedy the whole family will enjoy.

Review:

The Christmas Project is a feel good movie about loving your enemy, and doing good to those who hurt you. And most importantly, overcoming your negative feelings toward that person when you serve them. It is told from a young boy's point of view, and takes place in the 80's. The styles were funny (especially the girls' hairstyles and accessories-ah the flashback). I particularly enjoyed that it was filmed in a town I used to live in (at least parts of it were filmed there).

I had hoped to watch this with my kids so I could include thoughts from the target audience. Sadly busy schedules didn't allow for us to squeeze this in before my review was due, so I watched it by myself. It is definitely a movie I would be comfortable with my kids watching though, and I hope to make the time to watch it together soon. There is some bullying, but nothing depicted so severely that I think they'd be upset. It also has quite a bit of humor throughout the movie.

It might be a bit early for some people to be thinking about Christmas, but it's definitely worth keeping in mind to watch with your families when you are in the mood for a Christmas movie.
