    Anyone seen it yet? Had a night to kill later this week, was thinking about checking it out -- Vaughn makes me chuckle, what can I say. But, haven't heard anything about this flick. Usually, somebody here has posted something... but nada. So, if you've seen it -- funny, unfunny, too early for a Christmas flick?

    Do tell.

    It looks like a cliched Christmas movie. There's nothing appealing about it, to me. It's a kid's holiday flick.

    Not going to see it now, not going to see it when it hits DVD.

    I've only heard a little but it's all a variation of one theme: It sucks.

    Was cute, nothing special. Was far better than Chrimmas with the Kranks, but not as good as Christmas Vacation.
    And it has Rachel Weisz and Elizabeth Banks...
    But Vince Vaughn is growing stale. Please, play someone else besides the same character...

    Moddy, I am assuming from this you won't be watching either?

    Seriously, I was shocked and put off to hear they edited the head of a couple actors onto the bodies of "little people" to play elves.

    I think that's pretty weak and if I were a little person, I'd be pretty offended.

    Its trailer had "buyer beware" written all over it

    THANK YOU! It's about time someone pointed this out. There was a time when Vaughn mixed his comedy and serious roles. Now he's cloying, frat boy wannabe pathetic.

    Sounds like something you'd take your 8-year-old along on...but if you don't have a kid, uh, you don't go.
