Reviews: Happiest Season (2020)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Take “La Cage aux Folles”…and slap some tinsel on it and you’ve got “Happiest Season,” minus most of the laughs… Thankfully, Stewart and ‘Schitt’s Creek’s’ Dan Levy…keep the holiday spirit alive with a welcome assist from Aubrey Plaza
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Finds something fresh and gently feminist in the tropes and claptrap of an overbaked genre. Stewart and Davis have terrific chemistry, and the supporting cast of modern legends of funny is to die for.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: “Happiest Season” is a cozy, inclusive, poignantly wise hug of a movie.
  • Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: Transcends its genre tropes to deliver a mostly fresh take on a tired formula. While there won’t be many surprises, there will be an ample amount of heart to make up.

    • Excerpt: Happiest Season’ is lovely and a perfectly fine holiday fare, but the movie lacks the sparks and charms to become something truly special.
