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 Christmas Project is a heartwarming comedy the whole family will love.
I wasn't sure what I was going to think about this movie. All too many Christmas movies feel a bit cheesy, sweet, but cheesy. But I ended up thoroughly enjoying it. Not only was the movie full of humor (I mean a home with four boys, how could it not be funny, and the pregnant mom was amusing as well), but there was plenty of heart too. I've read and seen plenty of stories about acts of kindness, especially at Christmastime. What I liked about this one was the conflict between the Buckleys, the givers, and the Hagbarts, the oldest of whom goes out of his way to torment Matthew and his brothers. Giving to those who hurt you is a real challenge. And the sibling rivalry felt all too real. Not only is this movie a humorous delight, but it's a story that will leave you with a smile on your face.
