Editorial Reviews

Lie, cheat, steal.it's all part of the holiday spirit for ex-con Dennis (Paul Giamatti) and fast talker Rene (Paul Rudd) when they try to make a quick buck selling Christmas trees in New York. For Dennis it's a chance to go straight, and for his best friend and former partner-in-crime, Rene, it's a chance to make some easy cash so he can marry Dennis's ex-wife. But for two not-very-bright guys now stuck together on the cold streets of Brooklyn, this holiday season may bring some of the most unexpected miracles of all. Golden Glober winner Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky) and Amy Landecker (A Serious Man) co-star in this film from executive producer Paul Giamatti and the award-winning director of Junebug Phil Morrison.

"Season's Greetings from Canada." After being released from prison Dennis (Giamatti) returns home to see his kid he is surprised when he finds out his wife told the daughter he was dead. Things get worse when he finds out his ex crime partner Rene (Rudd) is now dating his wife. Looking for work Dennis joins Rene on a trip to New York City to sell Christmas trees. The trip not only forces them to deal with the present circumstances but winds up affecting the lives of everyone involved. First of all even though this is about selling trees I would not call this a Christmas movie. Going into this I was excited because I love Paul Giamatti and think Paul Rudd is underrated. While the movie is good and the acting is great as expected it is very depressing. This is a movie that I can't really talk about what is going on too much because it will give something away but just know that you see the full arc of Dennis from happiness of being released to happiness with himself. If you are a Giamatti fan you will like this but don't expect a happy Christmas movie at all. Overall, great acting and worth seeing but don't be shocked if you are sad when its over. I give it a B.

5.0 out of 5 stars A JOY to watch. February 8, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Much maligned film deserves more mature audience and a better evaluation. Not a cookie cutter, simple minded trip through the Yuletide experience, a bit of cold reality, some unsavory characters attempt to get their act together by scoring big with Christmas tree sales in December. A bit of their own medicine leaves them completely broke setting up the unusual ending as they try to at least make Christmas joy and magic for a sweet little child.

Paul Giamatti (Dennis) is one Bassett Hound faced, dissatisfied mutt throughout the entire story and Rudd (Rene) is not an ideal partner as he tries to steal Giamatti's character's family away. One character, Olga, is likable and probably the only redeeming body in the whole story other than the little girl. She helps Dennis make his first sale (to her) and then invites him in for food and a much needed bath.

This feature had one quality that I adore in movie making. It is unique. Not many, if any viewers will say that this one reminds them of any other film. That's a virtue. And it entertains from beginning to end. Just don't go in thinking that this is your typical feel good Christmas story with a lollipop ending. That's just not what this movie is.

The theme song "JOY" is ear candy.. It was written and performed by Tracey Thorn. Very nice. I always enjoy a beautiful musical score.

2.0 out of 5 stars Paul Giamatti's chaotic sideburns will overwhelm you November 19, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
The bleak and dreary atmosphere in "All is Bright" is regrettably a dead giveaway for the events that are about to transpire. You can see the big turning point in the climax coming a mile away. Dennis and Rene keep talking about this job that went bad; Dennis as the thief and Rene as the safe-cracker. It was a two man job that Rene backed out of at the last minute. Dennis tried to do the job anyway, got caught, and did four years because of it. Everything that happens in the film doesn't live up to imagining these two guys robbing banks, executing heists, and/or stealing from people. Who wouldn't want to see Paul Giamatti and Paul Rudd being criminals together on screen while screaming at each other and wisecracking with one another? That sounds like the hilarious and exciting film that “All is Bright” tried to con itself off as. You are left with this burning desire to see this failed escapade, but are left mostly with emotional scraps that are both unfunny and illogical.

The dramatic comedy juggles the feeble and unpredictable Christmas tree selling business and the love triangle between Dennis, Therese, and Rene; Dennis as the ex who hasn't accepted that he's been forced out of the picture and Rene stepping in as the man of the household. Dennis tries so hard to live a straight life, but is forced to steal just to survive in New York. He bonds with the brutally honest and blunt Olga (Sally Hawkins), who is also their first customer. Dennis tries to educate himself to give people their money's worth while Rene tries to con them with his charm and a fake French accent. Unfortunately for Dennis, Rene is extremely sensitive, incredibly unreliable, noticeably distracted by other women, and disappears for days on end at the drop of a hat.
