Christmas Eve Movie Trailer. Mitch Davis‘ Christmas Eve (2015) movie trailer stars Jon Heder, Patrick Stewart and James Roday. Christmas Eve‘s plot synopsis: “Hilarity, romance, and transcendence prevail after a power outage traps six different groups of New Yorkers inside elevators on Christmas Eve.”
Well, then, I was not prepared for this to be what it is. When I saw Patrick Stewart’s face and the words “Christmas Eve Trailer” next to it, I was expecting something far more dramatic and sophisticated than another schmaltzy, Hallmark, four-quadrant + the dog film that will inevitably bomb.
I mean, this just looks absolutely atrocious. There might as well have been a voiceover narration for this trailer during those intertitles. “Six people….one Christmas Eve…” etc. You get the point. If you’re a corny mom or a 10 year old girl, maybe this is for you. For everyone else – please look at the trailer for yourself. Just for a few seconds. It won’t hurt (that much).
According to Slashfilm, “Christmas Eve, like the forthcoming Love the Coopers, appears to be the kind of Christmas movie that comes and goes. The worst movies about this joyous holiday are generally the most schmaltzy ones. The trailer for Christmas Eve definitely wears its heart on its sleeve — perhaps a little too much.”
