The Christmas Shoes Reviews
What's that you say? Its not a comedy?
Well, me and my girlfriend laughed our asses off as Kimberley Williams attemped to portray a dying woman with strategic coughs and wheezes. The producers litterally took the entire 90 minutes to kill her, and we were rooting for her congestive heart failure by act 2.
The only female in cinema that took longer to die was Nichole Kidman in the musical "Moulan Rouge" where I was rooting for her tuberculosis after an hour or so of watching her cough up blood.
Script writing Gems in "The Christmas Shoes" include the dying mother telling her son she's "Going to heaven soon" Whereupon the little tyke say "Can I go with you?"
YES!!!! Please go with her, NOW! The film would have been much more interesting had Mommy said "Sure baby, I'll send you up right now" and then proceeded to strangle the little urchin.
Now that's comedy!
Sadly, everyone plays it straight, and we don't even get to see mommie's death rattle - just a light switching off as a band of murderous christmas carolers cease caterwauling outside.
The final nail in the coffin is the closing song, which promises mommy will soon be with Jesus. Really? With acting this bad, I suspect Mommy is headed someplace......warmer.
really sad movie
nd this movie is based on the smashed hit christmas shoes.
