Did the star cast get you going? Don’t get your hopes up.
A Very Murray Christmas is about Bill Murray running a Christmas special. Only problem is that a snowstorm has caused most of the guests to cancel, including Chris Rock in a cameo appearance. So Murray makes do with who he’s got. Hilarity ensues. Well, not really, but let’s just pretend.
In spite of the star cast, this movie’s performances are lame. These actors are very halfhearted. It’s like they don’t care. So they give us no reason to care either.
The humor sucks as well. The jokes are both unoriginal and uninspired. There wasn’t a split-second of laughter that it got out of me.
But humor is not all there is to this film. It’s a musical in which members of the cast sing Christmas carols and certain points. Sadly, they’re just as lazy in these musical breaks.
To be fair, this movie isn’t horrible, just boring. Sorry this was a very short review, but there’s not much to say about a Very Murray Christmas. It lasts less than an hour. Suffice to say, I cannot recommend it.
Overall: 3 out of 10
