My friend Hans Gruber died like this

Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) parents die at Christmas time. His friends Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) become his new Christmas bar buddies from this time forward. They hear about the ultimate Christmas party known as the Nutcracker, a private affair they can't locate. It appears this is going to be their last Christmas together. Isaac has a wife who is very expecting while Chris has gone on to be a famous Football player...one that doesn't have to practice over Christmas. Ethan comes across and steals tickets for the ultimate party, a party where they must face the realities of their life...in order to give a stoner film some meaning.

The film did have some colorful characters which made a formula stoner film digestible. Mr Green (Michael Shannon) the drug dealer and ghost of Christmas past, present, and future was somebody we have all met. Rebecca Grinch (Ilana Glazer) was another favorite of mine. It is nice to see Tracy Morgan is alive, but in all honesty Samuel L. Jackson giving a salty reading would have been far better. Potty mouth Miley Cyrus did a fair job playing herself. The conversation between James Franco and Seth Rogen was funny on a different level considering the number of movies they have done together. This is a 30 something stoner film. My main criticism is Seth Rogen acting on drugs dragged on way too long to a point I was feeling nauseated too.

I liked the film with apologies to Charles Dickens.

Guide: F-words, brief sex, brief stripper nudity, and James Franco's manhood on a phone. Sex talk. While there were a lot of crude elements in this feature, I thought they were funny within their own right and not done just for the sake of being crude...mostly.

Just passes the time.

The movie is absolutely fine in almost all aspects. Easily the best thing about the movie is the friendship between Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, and Anthony Mackie. They all have really good chemistry with each other. And Joseph Goron-Levitt has the best performance out of the whole movie. Although, I ould not recommend this movie.

Solid Christmas adult comedy

"It was 'The Night Before' Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse" - except for Isaac (Rogen) "tripping balls"! This is almost more of a drug film than a Christmas movie, but that's not necessarily a bad thing - or a good thing. Simple concept - Ethan (Gordon-Levitt)'s parents died when he was 18, so his two best friends, Isaac & Chris (Mackie) have a Christmas Eve tradition where they go drinking in New York.

From there, it's easy - people grow up & grow apart, so this is their farewell to the tradition. Drugs are taken, ridiculous situations ensue. Rogen didn't write this, but there's still plenty of jokes for him and his drug-addled self, even if he is playing the "responsible Dad" from Neighbours', just with the night off. Lizzy Caplan needed more screen time and backstory, but it's good to see Michael Shannon, Tracy Morgan & James Franco pop up.

A few great laugh out loud moments, particularly in the Midnight Mass scene, and some other chuckles throughout, but there's not enough sustained hilarity, or heartfelt moments, even if the film gets there at the end. Not the worst Christmas film, but nor is it 'Bad Santa'.
