Cine Beaverhausen: Christmas Eve with Patrick Stewart
It's about busy New Yorkers trapped in elevators on the titular holiday. They learn, of course, in the course of the film to find their humanity and to bond with one another.
It was kind of a box-office flop, at least here in the USA at least.
Herein, Mr Stewart mildly goes where man has gone before. It's no It's a Wonderful Life, though it has its moments. Frankly, I'd rather watch the Alvin & The Chipmunks Christmas movie featuring John Waters. But I'd much rather watch this than that Christmas horror film (as if we need another one) Krampus which gave me cramps, actually!
I appreciated Christmas Eve's snappy dialogue, however, and its overall cleverness. Recommended for your holiday viewing.
