Matthew Broderick and Danny DeVito star in this hilarious holiday comedy as two competitive neighbors who try to put the "win" in "winter!" Determined to unseat Steve Finch (Broderick) as the town's holiday season king, Buddy Hall (DeVito) plasters his house with so many decorative lights that it'll be visible from space! When their wives (Kristin Davis and Kristin Chenoweth) bond, and their kids follow suit, the two men only escalate their rivalry, and their decorating. It's anybody's guess whether the holidays will wind up jolly or jostled in this wild laugh-fest the whole family will love!

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's a holiday ritual: Each year, American moviegoers get the misanthropically stupid, plastic-satire-of- a-plastic-society Christmas comedy they deserve.
Rotten: The raw ingredients of this crass holiday comedy include an inept stab at Home Alone-style slapstick, sitcom-thin characters, a snickering attitude about tacky yuletide decorations and a good helping of smarmy sentimentality. Merry Christmas!
Rotten: As reliable as your Aunt Harriet's sweet potato casserole, every holiday season brings a movie just like John Whitesell's Deck the Halls, in which otherwise sensible actors commit themselves to a cheerless exercise in jingle bell hell.
Rotten: I literally did not count a single laugh in the whole aimless schlep, except for the hucksters who made it, on their way to the bank.
