New Holiday Movie:The Christmas Project & a Giveaway
Each year we hunt around and try to find some new Christmas films to add to our favorite holiday movies. When I heard about this movie, I thought it'd be fun to give it a try. My children range in age from 13-2 and they had a great time watching it. It's definitely right up there with the cheesy holiday movies that my kids love, so be forewarned that they will probably be quoting some goofy lines and hopefully be thinking of how they might go "Elfing" to help others this season.
Here's a little bit about the movie:
Even with Christmas around the corner, for the Buckley boys, payback almost always wins out over brotherly love. That is until the four brothers join forces against a common adversary--The Hagbarts-- the meanest bullies at their middle school. But now Mom has decided that the Buckley family is going to Elve the Hagbarts this year for Christmas. Eleven-year-old Matthew can hardly stand it. By day the Hagbarts torture the Buckley brothers into submission, and by night the Buckleys secretly deliver Christmas treats and gifts to their sworn enemies. Soon the war of wits escalates to an incredible scheme designed to get the ultimate revenge on the Hagbarts. But now that Matthew has been learning that he's supposed to do good to those who hate him, what will he do when a little push becomes a great big shove?
The fun thing about this movie was when I heard the mother call the main character by his full name, Matthew Marion Buckley. I suddenly realized why things sounded familiar! This movie is based off of two middle grade books written by Matthew Buckley. Chickens in the Headlights and Bullies in the Headlights are filled with hilarious stories of the Buckley's and the Hagbart kids.
Christmas is right around the corner, so don't miss this fun movie and think of a family near you that might enjoy it as a fun neighbor gift!
