If Narnia is for the family, Family Stone is just lovely-dovey, Merry Christmas's way too arty farty...Ice Harvast for the alternative.

Black Humour. Murders. Randoms. Strip tease clubs. This is your unconventional Christmas movie. It's Christmas Eve and Charlie (John Cusack), an attorney for the sleazy businesses of Wichita, and his unsavory associate, the steely Vic Cavenaugh (Billy Bob Thornton), have just successfully embezzled $2,147,000 from their boss. Everybody's wondering what's Charlie's hiding, and the next 12 hours is filled with dangerous and funny events.

I sense a Quentin Tarantino follower here with derisive dialogues and cynical humour. Not my cup of tea though, or I just don't sense a purpose. The movie starts and ends, and you probably won' t remember much of it. Not dark enough, and not funny enough.

If you are in Grinchy mood this Christmas, you would appreciate its grim dark feel and all the twists and turns. It's sex and violence and Christmas!

Ice Harvest – Lots of ice, but no harvest
