A middle child has the worst Christmas. His older brother is a jock, his younger brother is great at everything, he’s blamed for everything, his parents forget to get him a gift. The next day he wakes up and it’s Christmas again.

 

It’s late and I have to get up early, so I’m gonna make this quick. The idea is pretty much the same as Groundhog Day. Once the kid figures out what’s going on, he uses it to make his life better, learn new things and eventually help his family. It’s very much a feel-good get in the holiday spirit movie. The love interest (?) is cute, the main character is interesting enough, his brothers aren’t as bad as they seem and the grandfather is cool.

 

So anyway, although it’s been done before, it’s good (I personally liked it better than Groundhog Day since it was more fun). So I’d recommend it for sure.
