THIS fish-out-of-water tale sees an uptight young woman accompanying her boyfriend to his family's Christmas celebration only to find they fail to click.

In general, a DVD movie about Christmas is possibly not the best thing to buy during the beginnings of spring, but this is one of the best family holiday films for some time.
