There are two reasons to see "Deck the Halls," and those two reasons would not be the stars Danny DeVito and Matthew Broderick. This 2006 Christmas comedy was apparently inspired by "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation," or the episodes of "Home Improvement" where Tim tries to outdo the neighbor's Christmas display, or any other movie or television show that is based on the oxymoronic notion of cut-throat decorating at Christmas time, none of which is enough to warrant seeing this film either, especially if you can get your hands on one of those others instead. But still, there are a couple of reasons to check this movie out nonetheless.

Steve Finch (Broderick) is not only the town's eye doctor, he is also Mr. Christmas. However, Buddy Hall (DeVito) has moved in across the street and when he learns that his house cannot be seen from space by an online site that is mapping the Earth, he decides the solution is to deck his house with every Christmas tree light he can get his hands on. Broderick and DeVito can do these roles in their sleep, or at least in low gear, and the script never gives them any reason to rev up their performances. As their respective wives, Kirstin Davis and Kristen Chenoweth, also have little to do until Chenoweth finally gets to sing near the end and serve as a reminder that you just cannot make a living being a singing star on Broadway these days. However, I keep thinking they cast her because she is approximately DeVito's size, setting up the visual humor of their tall blond twin daughters, and not because she is a talented Broadway musicale actress. For that matter, Davis is just spinning her wheels waiting for the "Sex in the City" movie to give her something decent to do.

In DECK THE HALLS, Danny DeVito is the new neighbor from Perdition who strings a couple of billion Xmas lights on his house and adds so many other decorations that the place becomes a hectic and noisy tourist destination. Matthew Broderick is the annoyed guy across the street who schemes to put the kibosh on Danny's fun.

There's a few humorous moments here, but this one's not worth seeing, IMO.

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.

It's really about the meaning of Christmas in our society. No nativities or mentions of baby Jesus. However, you will see plenty of neighbors trying to outshine each other with lights, trees, etc. After it's all said and done the truth still isn't realized but it does manage to keep your attention off the real world for over an hour.

I started watching this one with low expectations and was very much surprised by the fun, laughs and jokes. Its about two guys who are trying to outdo each other with their Christmas lights and end up causing trouble for all. I've watched it twice now and look forward to my next watch next year.

Our family enjoyed the lights. Who cares about a serious Christmas plot anyway with fulfilling meaning? Go watch Quackser Fortune or Barfly if you want to analyze movies ten ways from Sunday. Afterwards, write a 1000 word review for each to make you feel good.

I used to love Christmas movies like MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET and/or IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, but as I grow older, I find them old fashioned and predictable. Instead I now like DECK THE HALLS, which tells the story of a man obsessed with tradition, a man whose obsession with tradition threatens to destroy his family. Such a man is Steve Finch, played by Matthew Broderick as an unhealthy shell of a man. He's like a decrepit and deserted old house from whence the tenants have long since fled. Nowhere in his eyes can you see the impudent spirit we loved him for in such vehicles as TORCH SONG TRILOGY or FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF. Was it his long, tortured marriage to fellow teen stay Sarah Jessica Parker that has given Matthew Broderick that sallow, jaundiced countenance?

If only Nathaniel Hawthorne was still alive he could have done the world a service by putting the noble ruin of the middle aged Broderick to good use, perhaps remembering his erstwhile glories as a star. With his extensive stage background, and his father's fame too, he probably never envisioned a day when he would have to co-star opposite the tiny terror, Danny De Vito, and that the script would show Steve Finch sinking lower than the lowest depravities conjured up in the mind of Buddy Hall, the car salesman De Vito plays here. My mother used to say, any movie with car salesmen in it has got to be bad, but I wish she were with us today (for many reasons, but among them is the chance to see a five star movie pitting a car salesman against an optometrist). The two girls who plays De Vito's teenage twins do a heckuva job playing twins. Every year since 2006 I watch them more closely, trying to detect the difference between them.

Holiday movies like "A Christmas Story", "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation", "Miracle On 34th Street", and "It's A Wonderful Life", are all perennial holiday favorites and classics because they are good movies. They have warmth, humor, and a genuineness to them. But some filmmakers think all you need are a bunch of twinkling lights, some snow, and a guy in a Santa suit to be a great holiday film, no matter what. This film is one of those. There isn't anything even remotely funny about the film or it's situation. Everything looks too pristine and plastic. So do the characters. Sure it's digestible enough fluff, but you can only take so much before you are an overstuffed candy cane filled to the brim of lights and Christmas 'this' and Christmas 'that'. I love Christmas. It's my time of the year. But this movie just felt wrong. It had a fun enough premise. Matthew Broderick is the "Christmas guy" in his little town, until new neighbor Buddy Hall(Danny DeVito), moves in across the street. Buddy wants to do something special. He wants to be noticed. He wants his house to be seen from outer space, and he figures he can do that by filling every nook and cranny of his house with Christmas lights and assorted decorations. Obviously, this doesn't sit well with Broderick, being de-throned as Christmas king. The premise has all the potential in the comedy world for some fun humor and slapstick, but it all seems as flat as egg nog come January. For a film about a joyous season and heart, it feels devoid of anything joyous or heartfelt. When it tries to be warm and have heart, it just doesn't ring true. It seems as fake as the snow in the movie. The movie has a good cast, and that's what makes it's failures all the more noticeable and disappointing.Read more ›
