About the Movie

This year Christmas with the Whitfields promises to be one they will never forget. All the siblings have come home for the first time in years and they've brought plenty of baggage with them. As the Christmas tree is trimmed and the lights are hung, secrets are revealed and family bonds are tested. As their lives converge, they join together and help each other discover the true meaning of family.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: There is a familiar quality to the multi-generational family holiday homecoming that nicely blends drama and comedy. It's a cut above the standard heartwarming fare that fills theaters this time of year. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Nov 22, 2007

Fresh: This Christmas is not your typical family holiday movie, and thank goodness for that. It's warm, witty and alive, with a fantastic cast and a belief in its characters that transcends its formulaic tendencies. – G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle, Nov 24, 2007

Rotten: If the real-life Christmas experience tends too often to be marred by the rude contradiction between expectations and reality, movies like the ultra-bland holiday family movie This Christmas are at least partly to blame. – Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star, Nov 26, 2007

Rotten: An incoherent mess in which scenes of teary reconciliations sit uncomfortably next to protracted gags involving catfights, car wrecks and a big bottle of baby oil. – Jason Anderson, Globe and Mail, Jun 24, 2010

This Christmas

This is a heart-warming movie that is so true to what family life really is. There is "NO" perfect family… even the tuff times can bring the best out of people. Your family is always there for you, true love unconditional, not to judge you, but they’re to support you! I purchased the movie and enjoyed it very much. I am not a Cris Brown fan but his singing in this movie is a must listen to. When the movie sound track is released, I’m going to buy it! Good Movie…Entertaining. Cheers! Demouse260 Monterey, CA
