Christmas at the Riviera was one of ITV's offerings over the Christmas season for 2007. In recent years, ITV has failed to offer little enjoyment from this type of programming. It is rare for a two hour comedy to sustain your interest and you quickly realise why episodes of other comedy is limited to one hour.
The programme centred about the Riviera, a seaside hotel with faults designed to create some comedy moments. The dis-functionality of the guests was also designed to add more comedy.
In summary, the whole thing was rather weak. The laugh out loud moments were non-existent and the farce which a comedy of this nature should portray was simply lacking.
