A troubled boy tried to be good on this Christmas!
I haven't seen the television series, but I did not find any difficult to follow the film. The story started with a little introduction about a troubled high school student Hank. A few days to go for the Christmas that celebrated grandly in his school, but two unexpected visitors lead to cancel it. Followed by Hank's family is ready to welcome a new member, a baby to be born. With all the complications around, he meets a famed singer and be friends. Now how everything comes together to celebrate the festival as planned takes us to the final segment.
Of all the Christmas films I have seen in this season, this one looked much better actually. Because all those were either the US or the Canadian films, and they all looked the same. A single woman with her young daughter, romance, Christmas preparation blah blah blah... So this one was completely different and a little fun.
I don't have any idea about the series, so surely I'm missing something, like I'm not used to the characters or the type of the comedies. But I enjoyed watching with whatever it offered. I have seen many films like 'Inbetweeners', 'Entourage' et cetera. Most importantly, they did not affect me from having a good time, because of the lack of the knowledge of its original. This film might look silly, like the baby birth scene, but for a comedy, it'll work. So I think not a bad film, especially on the occasions like this.
