Critic Reviews of "Almost Christmas"Time OutNovember 15, 2016
The movie takes a few calamitous turns at its climax, dangerously approaching broad slapstick and villainizing a character we've come to love. But mainly, it's a fun and boisterous countdown to the big meal.RogerEbert.comNovember 11, 2016
The committed performances by the cast of talented actors are what elevates Almost Christmas above complaints about its familiarity and melodrama.Globe and MailNovember 11, 2016
Almost Christmas goes light enough on the cliché and gives the stacked cast - which also includes J.B. Smoove, Gabrielle Union, Omar Epps and Romany Malco - enough decent material that the film remains relatively lively.Detroit NewsNovember 11, 2016
It's as predictable as your aunt's holiday stuffing, but the cast finds some places to open up the material.Chicago Sun-TimesNovember 10, 2016
On a few, all-too-rare occasions, comedic sparks fly.Toronto StarNovember 10, 2016
The epiphanies go down like eggnog, along with the smooth R'n'B and jazz on the soundtrack.Shadow and ActApril 12, 2017
Almost Christmas follows a series of predictable twists, that doesn't negate its charm.Irish TimesDecember 27, 2016
You can't fault the film for its efficiency. Each of these idylls is threatened by a problem that will be solved within a reasonably tidy running time.The Young FolksDecember 12, 2016
There is a bit of holiday charm in this film, and a story about family coming together after a big loss, but it is buried in a series of slapstick situations and heavy-handed holiday schmaltz.Times (UK)November 29, 2016
Aside from the traditional spaghetti set-up of conflicts that will unfurl and be resolved with good cheer around the turkey, David E Talbert's film has a rather moving backstory about the death of the family matriarch the previous year.The ListNovember 28, 2016
Okay, we have seen worse Christmas movies.Radio TimesNovember 24, 2016
Maybe not a Christmas cracker, but it's warming festive fun, nonetheless.
