Comedy - This is an ensemble holiday comedy
with its star-studded cast all
generally having equal-sized roles
across a number of converging
storylines. There is some language,
adult themes, and mildly suggestive
humor, but families with pre-teens
and up may find this to be fairly
PROFANITY: 1 S-word; 2 GD's; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Some sloppy tongue kissing between teens. VIOLENCE: A punch. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Banter and wisecracks, sometimes suggestive; cute kid and baby humor; dog humor; physical gags.
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average ... a jumbled, toxic snow globe of a movie complete with a brewing storm, caustic quarreling and excessive caroling in an effort to undercut sentimentality. There are too many characters to even attempt to care about.
USA TodayFull Review Below Average Modern holiday films hit a new low with this trite and predictable dramedy that buries its few bright spots under a heap of fruitcakes. True, most Christmas flicks tend toward the trite and predictable naturally but they just don't have to be quite this insufferable.
NY PostFull Review Above Average Unemployment, dementia, shoplifting, estrangement and generalized anomie: "Love the Coopers” is a Christmas tree hung with grenades.

Most of this 40% felt it was an enjoyable movie, but nothing special, rating it "average." A very small percentage rated it even lower.
