PG-13
Surviving Christmas is a 2004 American holiday movie from DreamWorks SKG, directed by Mike Mitchell. Drew Latham (Ben Affleck) is rich, young, and good looking with an equally attractive girlfriend, Missy (Jennifer Morrison). Life is good'until, after surprising her with first-class tickets to Fiji for the Christmas vacation, she dumps him! What?! It turns out that the fact that he wants to spend Christmas away from his family turns her off'and the fact that she hasn't met his family makes her think he isn't serious about their relationship. Being rich, young, and good looking might be nice'but not nice enough to make up for having to spend Christmas alone. Through a series of events, Latham ends up at his childhood home, now occupied by the Valco family, and, when he's not too eager to leave, ends up paying the to let him spend Christmas with them! Surviving Christmas was a bit of a dud, attracting both negative critical reviews and failing rather dismally in the box office.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 30

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    As you watch the comedy lurch along, the woozy, sinking sensation it produces suggests a movie slapped together after the consumption of far too many gallons of that spiked eggnog.

  • 30

    Los Angeles Times

    A dismally formulaic hodgepodge of crude humor and wan attempts to tug at the heart.

  • 20

    Variety

    An almost mirth-free, poorly conceived comedy destined to offer Ben Affleck bashers satchels full of new ammunition.
