Review

Our Score
An energetic David Hasselhoff plays on his eccentric public persona in this simplistic and undemanding comedy about the real meaning of Christmas. Wide-eyed and manic-looking, the former Baywatch star throws himself into his role as the titular organiser, who's hired by career-focused Caroline Rhea to handle every detail of her disconnected family's yuletide. The result is cheesily predictable, with "the demented elf" effortlessly sorting both practical and emotional issues in an avalanche of laboured verbal humour and silly slapstick that's best appreciated by younger viewers. But easy solutions that emphasise the season's true priorities don't sit well with increasingly jealous mum Rhea, leading to an even more far-fetched final act when she goes into childish meltdown.

Summary

A couple with four children are worried about the demands of preparing for Christmas, so hire a special adviser to help them cope with the stress. However, the mother begins to regret employing him as she feels he is taking over her role in the household. Comedy, starring David Hasselhoff and Caroline Rhea.
