In this obviously-titled Christmas film, Steve Finch (Matthew Broderick) tries to put out the distracting Christmas lights put up by his neighbor Buddy Hall (Danny de Vito). In the end, Steve helps Buddy to accomplish his objective, and that is to have his house seen from outer space. Although the film is somewhat traditional and quite predictable, the Christmas lights on Buddy’s house never failed to amuse me. The lights that were used according to this trivia are not the traditional Christmas lights that we use. The lights that were used are programmable LEDs just like the LED display in front of DLSU Manila.
Aside from the Christmas lights, the cast have amused me as well. You should see the look on Steve and Buddy’s face when they realized that it was their daughters whom they were hooting and yelling at. Hehehe. They overreacted in a way that they even went to a nearby chapel and washed their faces with holy water.
This film is highly recommended for the family and for also those who want something funny as well.
