This movie has a really cool indie vibe, which is something not oftenseen in family Christmas movies. Very cool style. Also, the acting wasawesome! A really diverse cast. Steven John Shepherd in particularstood out. It was a thoughtful film that the whole family can enjoy.The music was also great. The film contains some very cool renditionsof Christmas classics. I haven't seen a Christmas movie this unique ina long time. Because of the way it was advertised I thought it would bea lot like love actually or valentines day, but it wasn't at all. Itwas also nice to see a Christmas movie with normal people. It was anoverly dramatic dysfunctional family Christmas movie, but it alsowasn't an overly sensitized hallmark Christmas movie. It is a verybroad film. The comedy is broad, as is the drama, as is thespirituality. It gives everything a fair shot, and you should too. Hopeyou love it as much as I did!

Patrick Stewart is a diverse and lovable actor, one that can fit anyrole and be endearing to audience. The first flaw of many this moviehas is secluding him form the rest of cast and makes him recites dullversion of A Christmas Carol. The other plots are different groups ofsimilarly pretentious characters trying to be humorous and deliveringsome warm message, all of which fail to do so.
This is several short stories woven together with one underlying theme;finding solace in unfavorable situation of confined in elevator. Thereare so many noises and gibberish, it just doesn't feel authentic in anyway. Most of these characters speak and do things no ordinary personwould even consider normal. Perhaps the movie would like audience tosuspense judgement to these supposed colorful characters, but they aresimply revolting.
Maybe only one or two of them are decent, and that's already anoverstatement considering they rely so heavily on terrible script. Ifthis is an attempt to build any connection then it's a misguided one.The photographer and random lady subplot is superbly awful, almost rudeeven. They are just silly in an attempt for mild romance whicheventually ends up creepy and inauthentic.
There is actually a good cast here, they are just trapped in situationor company no one would like to see, let alone experience. Theorchestra assembly stuck in one elevator is just too much, too crudeand with no real focus. Jon Heder is pretty good, although he mustcontent with horrible boss cliché. The one elevator that has some kindof heart is the hospital one, it sometimes looks real enough, howeverit's still lacking depth to present a drama of faith.
With so many angles and good cast, it's actually surprising that everysingle one of them is flawed. Having insipid script and appallingcharacters, it's better to be stuck on an elevator in real life thantrapped watching this.
"Deus ex machina" can be clearly read on the side of the copier repairvan at the beginning of the movie(and the trailer), but as opposed toit being the divine intervention plot device to save the protagonist,in Christmas Eve it is the basis of a story where we see God manifestedin multiple ways, all from the machine.
The story is slow at times, the dialogue is fair, but has its moments.This is a story designed to make you feel connected to the peoplearound you and maybe even care about a stranger. It is not an actionmovie, it is not a romantic comedy, it is not 90 minutes of CGI. Youhave to engage in a little suspension of reality for the givensituation and spend the night in an elevator with the characters thathave normal lives and experience everyday outcomes.
Not the best Christmas movie I've seen. I would have liked more moretime focused on Patrick Stewart's character, but in fairness I've neverseen anything where I thought it had too much Patrick Stewart. In theend I took my children(10&4yo) and had less to worry about in thecontent than I do with prime time television. For that I am immenselythankful and will watch this with my family again next Christmas.
