"Just In Time For Christmas" is not your average Christmas movie. And with that being said, don't get me wrong. I am not saying that it is not a good movie or a suitable movie to watch during the Christmas holidays, far from it. It is, in fact, a wholesome family Christmas movie and actually quite entertaining if you enjoy these pseudo-corny types of movies.
It turned out that "Just In Time For Christmas" was actually far more entertaining and watchable than I had initially anticipated. So I was more than genuinely surprised with the outcome of the movie, because it was rather good.
Storywise, then the movie is generic and pretty much as predictable as they come. Corny, yes, and also quite stereotypical. But it is the kind of story that you quickly and easily get caught up in.
The acting in "Just In Time For Christmas" was quite good, and people were doing great jobs in portraying the various roles and characters in the movie. Just a shame that Christopher Lloyd didn't have a more prominent role in the movie. And it was somewhat of a fun surprise to see William Shatner make a small appearance in the movie as well.
"Just In Time For Christmas" is the kind of movie that leaves you with a good feeling and puts you in a cheerful mood. So on that account, it is a movie that definitely sits well to be watched during the Christmas season. This is hardly a Christmas classic in any sense, but it is well-worth taking the time to watch once. I say once, because I don't think that "Just In Time For Christmas" actually has material enough to its storyline to sustain multiple viewings.
I watched this movie with my family during the Christmas holidays of 2016, and it was among one of the better movies to make it to the screen that particular season.
