Synopsis [A]n often disarmingly entertaining picture....Mo’Nique, playing a superspirited sister-in-law, is simply magnificent...3 stars out of 4 -- The committed performances by the cast of talented actors are what elevates ALMOST CHRISTMAS above complaints about its familiarity and melodrama. Kimberly Elise is extraordinarily adept at handling heavy drama and broad comedy in the same moment.If there is any reason, besides an annual craving for cinematic holiday cheer, to see ALMOST CHRISTMAS, that reason would be Mo’Nique. Heck, the Mo'Nique bloopers at the end of the film are worth the price of admission alone.Mo’Nique is responsible for most of the laughs as the wisecracking, kimchi-eating aunt who spent the past few decades on the road as a backup singer and has the wild anecdotes to prove it. -- Grade: B-An African-American widower (Danny Glover) asks his family -- which includes his sassy sister-in-law (Mo'Nique) and four adult children (Kimberly Elise, Romany Malco, Gabrielle Union, and Jessie Usher), as well as the latter's spouses and kids -- to join him for their first Christmas since his wife passed away. However, having all of them under one roof leads to a number of personal confrontations as secrets are revealed and marriages are tested. Omar Epps, J.B. Smoove, Nicole Ari Parker, John Michael Higgins, Keri Hilson, and DC Young Fly co-star. Written and directed by David E. Talbert (BAGGAGE CLAIM).
