Good enough to keep me interested. Acting was good- especially Alfred. Hes been around the block a few times. Sometimes it reminded me of home.

nice holiday movie centered around a latino-american family/community instead of the typical "we" got problems no one else has... WE are all members of the same race - The Human Race!

Good family movie, not necessarily Disney. These people have more going on during the Holiday's than the Macy's Parade.

Nice little holiday movie with a funny cast and a warm but not cheesy plot. Wish I would have watched it closer to Christmas though.

Good - Nothing Like the Holidays (2008) 98 min. It was a delight to spend time in the Rodriguez house hold for Christmas. The large ensemble cast each have a unique and interesting story as this melodrama takes us through their trials and tribulations. Well-made film with Alfred Molina as the patriarch of the family and Elizabeth Pena as his wife. It was unfortunate that the film ended so soon – closure on some of the plots would’ve been nice to see instead of having to imagine the outcome.
