I'll Be Home for Christmas

Jake Wilkinson, selfish, cunning and crafty the College student shines a difficult job — he needs to get home for Christmas dinner, or lose a luxury Porsche, which was promised by his father. And when the time was still a matter of hours, Jake wakes suddenly in the middle of nowhere, with no money and hopes, dressed as Santa-Claus! And so he flies, crawls, swims, jumps, sneaks and even whipping a sleigh, just to get home. But his incredible journey turns into a nonstop Comedy, when hundreds of strange eccentrics trying to get a Santa Claus fulfill their unrealistic desires. And closer to home Jake, the closer it gets the real meaning of Christmas.

Does anyone know who is this Arlene Sanford? I doubt it. And because her filmography a little less than a hundred films (!!!) in as a Director, screenwriter and producer. But not worth it at breakneck speed to look for what this it removed, can she should remarkable films, which should immediately see a is not necessary because the main work of Arlene Sanford on television as a guest Director on one or two episodes with the series. However, "I'll be home for Christmas" — exception rules kinematografisty, so like this band is a full-length feature film.

Probably not need to remind you how Americans honor Christmas values. They are especially revere the tradition of extended family gathering for table, Christmas hymns and receiving gifts socks hanging from the fireplaces where must appear good-natured fat man with a big fluffy white beard with a shovel, which all call Santa Claus and before the holiday the kids write to him letters tell about their most secret dreams and that want to get to Christmas. Young nimble guy on behalf of Jake (Jonathan Taylor Thomas), have developed the makings of a great entrepreneur in the University wants to spend Christmas with his girlfriend Allie (Jessica Biel), but she has other plans. And at the same time, Jake falls into the trap, and, waking, finds that is located in the middle of nowhere dressed as Santa Claus. And to get the precious gift from father not to lose the ally he should be in the holiday table. But as to do? Natural charisma is supposed to help Jake.

The film "I'll be home for Christmas" is based on the story by Michael Allin, once wrote the screenplay to the film "enter the Dragon", to one of several films made in Hollywood the legendary Bruce Lee. Adapted the script That Nursall and Harris Goldberg (the last at next year after "I'll be home for Christmas" I wrote the script for the Comedy "Man call" with Rob Schneider). To say that they did something fantastic is impossible, quite impossible. A fairly simple adventure story that lead to doubts the morality of this picture: about the pre-Christmas values and traditions cannot be forgotten, in particularly because they are not you and your family and loved ones. Somewhere in the movie was truly funny moments, but laugh at all cylinders they will be hard. The main plus of the film "I'll be home for Christmas" — is that it is not is boring and pretty quickly it is so what if you suddenly want little to calm their children in the eve of the holiday, it will probably take them by putting this feed. For the older generation it seems to the extremes of banal, Yes, and there is much more favorite holiday films (e.g., "Irony of fate or With light steam!", how can I original).

You can't just suddenly quarrel on actors. They didn't fierily on the screen, but the lightness of the genre, "I'll be home for Christmas" this and not helped, I was one, a clear main task — fall nobody has done. Not annoyed with their behavior insolent Jonathan Taylor Thomas, who played the main character, as You remember. One say about his games: "Bad", the other will make "so-So" and both will be right. Pay in first and foremost, of course, the presence of Jessica Biel in the role of the girl protagonist. It was her second role in a movie after "the Gold Uli" and then she only gained experience, thanks to it will come later. Pretty, pretty girl, here basically all. Even more like Lauren Maltby, who played the main character's sister Tracy. Picky attitude the famous "brother-sister" like you hate each other, but one thing Tracy says that still love between them definitely exists. And, perhaps, this act built a view that Lauren Maltby as least worse than Jessica Biel, but only the film stress.

If you want something new before the new year holidays, we are welcome, as spoken to preview "I'll be home for Christmas" but if You the holidays are associated with very in other paintings, without interference watch them, so as "I'll be home for Christmas" is unlikely to pull viewing more than once.

I love these Christmas Comedy... Filled with typical American humor, which by the way is not seem so funny...

For me this film became a favorite among his own kind.

Whether the scenario is like, whether acting, it is such a simple but interesting storyline...

Not sure I can too many to write about this film...

But my advice! On a cold winter morning, in the cold winter holiday, will switch on and will not regret it.
