Let me start by saying to the reviewers complaining about the profanity and brief sex scene, I have no idea what else you were expecting. 'The Fitzgerald Family Christmas' is a very loose continuation to Burns' 1995 indie 'The Brothers McMullen', neither of which are made for children. Moral? Don't always expect all holiday movies to be wholesome family fun in the tradition of 'A Christmas Carol' etc!

Gerald "Gerry" Fitzgerald (Burns) is a blue-collar Queens mick trying to gather his dysfunctional siblings together for a very special occasion: their father, who abandoned them many years ago, wants to spend Christmas with his family this time around. We find out the primary reason is he has something big to tell them, which may or may not go very well given the cicumstances. The refreshing return of the Burns/McGlone-as-brothers combination is great. Burns' Fitzgerald is basically an older and more mature version of his previous Barry McMullen, minus the sexual hang-ups and insecurity. Overall a charming little piece and a must see for anybody who grew up in an Irish-American household.

Edward does it again with words, and characters that ARE the REAL WORLD. This hit close to home as my mother who also walked out on her family passed away from the same thing, and her last wish was to spend Christmas with family.
Love your flicks Ed....please continue your craft.....

A really touching movie. The last minute of the film is completely earned and worth the wait. I definitely recommend it, even in August :)
