I'll Be Home for Christmas

I'll Be Home for Christmas

Arlene Sanford (1998)

PG Certificate


Our Score
Think Planes, Trains and Automobiles set at Christmas instead of Thanksgiving and without the comic talents of Steve Martin or John Candy. This vehicle for Home Improvement teen actor Jonathan Taylor Thomas is watchable enough if you're in the festive mood, as he's clearly having fun as the smart aleck college kid who finds himself stranded in the desert wearing a Santa suit and facing a bizarre journey back to his family for the holidays. While the nightmare trip home has been done better, there are some laughs to be had.


A college student finds himself stranded in the middle of the desert dressed in a Santa suit - the result of a prank by his classmates. He faces no end of unexpected obstacles as he makes a cross-country journey to be with his family for the festive season. Comedy, starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Jessica Biel, Adam LaVorgna and Gary Cole.
