I don't usually like RomComs, or silly comedies, but come every Thanksgiving day, I am possessed by the Ghost of Wacky Christmas Movies, Past and Present. While the spirit watches I wallow in suspension of disbelief and become obnoxiously happy waiting for Christmas. The acting was terrible in Merry In-laws, the plot was cliche and there was not a twist or turn from the obvious, but I LOVED IT! Actors who had already won my heart in the past, camped it up to give me a little magic for my holiday. God bless them one and all. (and in case you are wondering, I watched the 1999 version of A Christmas Carol this year.) If you carry the same high standards you set for other movies, pass this one up, but if you are looking for a little magic and a smile, this one will become a favorite.
