An average movie

Since this movie was the last one directed by Sofia Coppola I still needed to see, I was quite eager to check it out. Eventually, I was amazed about how underwhelming it was. Indeed, it is apparently some American tradition to have some kind of Christmas specials and Netflix thought they should release their own edgy version starring Bill Murray. On top of that, Murray was working again with Sofia Coppola more than a decade after ‘Lost in Translation’ so it all sounded pretty neat on paper. Unfortunately, the whole thing didn’t work at all in my opinion. Indeed, the humor was lame, the songs were pretty weak (I mean, if Miley Cyrus manages to deliver the best song, you should know you are in trouble) and, above all, it was just really boring. Basically, the whole approach of having Bill Murray not wanting to do the Christmas special seriously backfired and, even after he finally goes on with the show, it became some kind of cringe-inducing parody of the genre. Basically, they tried to make some kind of anti-Christmas special but, even though the concept had some potential, it was not funny and not entertaining whatsoever.  To conclude, I thought it was really weak and I don’t think it is really worth a look.
