Music:'twas the Night Before Christmas - Elton John
"This Christmas" has magic, but not that kind
My daughter persuaded me to take her and a friend to This Christmas on Friday. Despite a few good performances by fine actors, most of it was written to be predictable and clichéd. The final 10 minutes consist of the cast, out of character, dancing for the camera. If you end up seeing it anyway, look for this funny blooper: Shortly after Michael 'Baby' Whitfield (played by R&B star, Chris Brown) gets a camera as an early Christmas present, he is wearing the camera around his neck during a scene in the kitchen. Watch that camera carefully. That Chris Brown is a master of illusion!
