  • Christmas for these 2 and 1/2 men

    8.5
    "joy to the world, I'm getting laid... I'm getting... laid... tonight." Charlie's plans to go to bed with a woman on christmas eve seems ruined when his friends and family show up in his house and turn it into a party.



    One of the funniest episode in season 4, a great episode and awesome jokes. Berta's lines made this episode even funnier, and the fact that Herb tries to seduce Kandi makes it even better. Charlie could have slept with a woman who could have been his sister, and Evelyn tries to make him stop. This story and plotlines make the episode funny and even thrilling... Merry christmas to the Harper boys.moreless
  • Great episode, but it felt like it was rushed because something was missing...

    8.1
    Pretty good one for sure, but it seemed like something was missing. You know what I mean, the final scene was the final scene but there could have been more.



    The whole analysis and the story was a great one! It probably would have scored a few more points if they hadn't rushed it. I don't know if they did, but it felt like it. Kandi was a hit actress tonight but she wasn't really a main character, Herb and Judith with Jake ended well, with him throwing up all over the place. Charlie and Gloria were funny, she just wanted to hump him but it's a miracle that he declined!

    Evelyn Harper is always funny, but not Berta anymore. I only laughed once or twice through this episode, but I wasn't really focussed on that, the story/plot was so detailed and interesting that I had to look elsewhere, meaning looking at that.

    So in overall terms, it was a great one full of surprises but it was definitely rushed and missing something. It could have had more detail.



    Still, a fine example of Season 4. Jake got an Nintendo Wii!!!moreless
  • Party Planner!

    Since "Heroes" is off the air until Jannery 22, until then I'll have to review "Two and a half Men!" And I didn't miss much, this epiosde is about a romantic night for Charlie wich is being interrupted by his friends. This christmas epsoide more funny than "How I Met Your Mother" and "the class" put together. Then in the bedroom, there was a stcking statement that the woman charlie's about the sleep with is his sister. And Susan sullivan and Holland Talyer may have hinted a relationship. I would love to see Taylor and Sullivan make out. Maybe in a future epsiode.moreless
  • Conchata Ferrell is the real star of this show

    8.7
    I took points off for the yucky story of Charlie in bed with a woman who might be his half sister. Rose and Berta following everyone around watching the "floor show" was so funny. Kandi playing chopsticks and singing Christmas carols to it was great. I didn't recognize her with her hair down.
  • Funny as always

    9.6
    Charlie wants to get laid as always but this time he unknowingly may be having sex with his half sister. The plotline was great, well managed and very funny. I loved how Berta commented about the plot as it unraveled. There were a few obscene references that I can't believe they got past the censor. The "It doesn't go back in the box the same as it came out" line was pretty dirty escpecially when it was said by the kid. Ryan Stiles should be on the show more because he is hilarious and adds a lot to the show. This was another in a great line of super shows. A+moreless

  • NOTES (3)

    • The German episode title is "Entweihnacht", meaning "Profane Night". The French title is "Mon plus beau Noël", meaning "My Best Christmas". The Italian title is "Noci e cloroformio", meaning "Walnuts and Chloroform". The Spanish title is "Nueces y demerol", an exact translation.

    • Alternate Title: Can't Bono Airdrop some Cheese?

    • Kandi plays the same tune on the piano for every song when she is singing Christmas songs. The tune is Heart and Soul.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • When Judith begs Alan to get Herb off of Kandi, Alan replies that from his viewpoint, "your peanut butter is all over my chocolate," playing off 1970's advertisements for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
