Staring down the barrel of a lonely holiday season, wealthy exec Dew Latham (Ben Affleck) tries to get in the spirit by returning to his childhood home and paying the current residents (James Gandolfini, Catherine O'Hara) to allow him to spend Christmas there and to pretend to be his parents. The couple agrees, but the real trouble starts when Drew's new "sister" (Christina Applegate) shows up and isn't willing to play along. Yuletide comedy co-stars Josh Zuckerman, Stephen Root. 91 min. Standard and Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
