Disney has a new streaming service and to kick it off, it debuted a new Christmas movie called NOELLE starring Anna Kendrick. I went into this film expecting it to be a cheesy, not-so-great “TV movie” in the likes of the Christmas movies that Netflix and Hallmark churn out annually, but instead, this movie was a delightful Christmas gem with a movie-theatre worthy outcome. Dare I say, I think this is the best Santa movie since Tim Allen wowed audiences with Santa Clause.
This is a wildly funny movie and yet it is still incredibly family-friendly. Writer-Director Marc Lawrence did an outstanding job of bringing humour for the kids and humour for the adults in a way that doesn’t leave either age group feeling left in the dark.
They could not have picked a more stellar ensemble. Anna Kendrick takes the title role with Shirley MacLaine as the nanny, Bill Hader as the brother, and Kingsley Ben-Adir as the best father ever.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think it’s time for some hot cocoa with whipped cream and peppermint.
