"Deck the Halls" was a Thanksgiving release and was gone two weeks later. Christmas movies are usually total bullshit cash-ins that mke way more money than they deserve, so if you produce a Christmas movie in that 4 or 5 week window and it's long gone before Christmas even hits, you have no business making movies, period.

Yeah I'm pretty sure the punchline they were going for was 'Ewww gay', though to be fair if I woke up to find myself stripped naked and straddled by a naked stranger I think I'd freak the fuck out.

You know, there are some parts that would be halfway decent if it wasn't for Broderick's inexplicable blase performance. The line about "Who moves in at the middle of the night? A meth lab?" That joke could have worked delivered by Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation.
Speaking of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, I realized that Deck the Halls is the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead of that movie. It's from the perspective of the two yuppie neighbor characters, only the Griswald's are gone and there's just Uncle Eddy's family arriving in the broke down RV.
Danny Devito is actually trying in this movie, especially in comparison to Broderick's sleepwalking.
Broderick as an uptight perfectionist ready to snap because of an upbeat monster? Did somebody pitch this movie as a sequel to Election?
10 minutes: The whole scene where the wife and kids come over and meet Devito's wife and kids. They go for the joke that the wife and daughters are jaw dropping hot, but never acknowledge her giant rack and cleavage hanging out. Instead they go with the son gawking at a nude painting and the wife pushing her butt for a boost? How inept a writer and director do you have to be to go with that? The editing is also garbage. It's like they decided to throw in the joke about them being hot after they had already shot, so they went back and got a bunch of cutaway closeups of the son and wife gawking and clumsily edited them in (they're so out of place). It's like they were going for the opening scene of Clue where everyone is staring at the maid's cleavage but failed horribly.
That seems like a common theme with this movie. They thought what they could do for jokes after they already shot the scenes so they went back and shot a bunch of bad reaction shots to splice in.
10-120 minutes: fuck this movie

- Crazy foreign couple minor characters
- "hip" remixes of classic songs (usually the whitest interpretation of hip hop)
- a pair of twins minor characters (Social Network is really the only exception)
