Christmas in Compton is a very funny movie with a meaningful message.
8 October 2012 | by hflazar1See all my reviews

My experience in watching Christmas in Compton was one of having fun and at the same time feeling it was a subtle message of love and connection that came through to me. I am looking forward to the opportunity to have my grandchildren who are 12 and 15 to see this movie. I also thought from a technical point of view the movie was well put together and moved fast enough to continuously keep my interest.

The character Big Earl is especially appealing as he encompasses traditional American values of acceptance, loving and caring. The extended international family that gradually become established through out the movie is handled in a beautiful and humorous way. With all that's happening in the world today it was nice to sit through a movie dealing with current family issues that move from the head to the heart.
