Frankly these are real people up on the screen and any cliché's reflect that life is something like that.

typical boring family movie .

Again, not one of my favorites, but well worth watching...

waste of time.....

It is very lame and the dialogues are pathetic and predictable.

" It was a very strung slow pace movie with 90 secs of fast past Christmas related stuff in between.

He can now add acting to his resume of showbiz talents with an accomplishment that included not one, but two vocal solos and a compelling performance in the role of Baby, the youngest child of the estranged Whitfield family.

Entertaining Family Movie .

Delroy Lindo and Loretta Devine have a screen chemistry you can feel, and Idris Elba delivers a compelling role as an alienated jazz musician and gambler who remains bitter after their birth father's disappearance years ago.

All these different people coming together was supposed to be amusing and entertaining.

Whitmore II This Christmas is everything you'd expect in festive season little bundle: it's funny; exciting and leaves you with a warm, fuzzy feeling at its conclusion.

The only saving grace here that prevented this film from going into a fiasco was the acting debut of R&B sensation Chris Brown--who steals the show with his breathtaking rendition of a R&B Otis Redding classic.

It's rather boring.

Overall the movie is entertaining and worth a look if you want to bring the whole family to the movies.

A surprise pregnancy is far from cliché as the family quickly accepts Claude Whitfield's (Columbus Short) pregnant white wife (Jessica Stroup), as the real bolt from the blue is that Claude is also AWOL from military service.

Thugs show up,unexpected.

It is boring, dull and has a very poor happy-ending when everybody realizes their faults and says "I' sorry".

A movie that is worth watching over and over I went to see this movie twice last year!

I found it very formulaic and very days of lives boring.

But, it has some interesting story lines and is reasonably entertaining.

I watched this movie expecting it to be another movie making fun of us but instead I found it to be an enjoyable movie.

A movie that is worth watching over and over .

With other music from Aaron Neville,James Brown and Kool and the Gang,its worth watching.
