Christmas in July! No, that’s not what happens when the a/c goes on a bender…though I do enjoy the cool even though I need to scrape the frost off the cat. I’m talking about Almost Christmas, an ensemble comedy that’s hitting theaters this fall, and looks like a nice pre-holiday warmup. Or, one of those “hey, my family’s not so bad” kinda deals. Synopsis!
A new comedy from writer/director David E. Talbert (Baggage Claim) and producer Will Packer (Ride Along, Think Like a Man series, This Christmas), Almost Christmas tells the festive story of a beloved patriarch who asks his family for one gift this holiday season: to get along. If they can honor that wish and spend five days under the same roof without killing one another, it will be a Christmas miracle.
The all-star cast of Almost Christmas is led by Kimberly Elise, Danny Glover, John Michael Higgins, Romany Malco, Mo’Nique, JB Smoove, Gabrielle Union, Omar Epps, Nicole Ari Parker, Jessie T. Usher and DC Young Fly. http://www.almostchristmasmovie.com
Mo’Nique looks like she is all in with this film, so I can’t wait to see her strut her stuff. Seeing Danny Glover, Gabrille Union and Omar Epps also gives me the happy.
Almost Christmas hits town November 11th, 2016. Happy birthday-eve to me!
