This Christmas

For me it’s 4 days before Christmas, and my last day off before Christmas.  So I need to overdose on my Christmas Movies.  Today’s Choice is THIS CHRISTMAS – Starring Delroy Lindo, Mekhi Phifer, Regina King and Chris Brown.

This is the story of the Whitfield Family.  The Mother, affectionately called MaDear, greatest joy is to have all her children home for Christmas.  The family owns a dry cleaning business, which arouses some heated discussions among the children.

The Opening Credits play to “Santa Baby” as the members of the Whitfield family are introduced.  Youngest Brother that every calls baby,  and older sister Lisa, who is the responsible one and is always nagging the other sisters.

Quinton, the oldest, and black sheep of the family, is ultimately the child MaDear longs to be home for Christmas the most.  Joe Black, who is MaDear boyfriend and secretely lives with her – Or so she thinks it’s a secret.

Like with all big Families, there are many secrets, that some are privy too and others are not.  Of course, like most secrets, they have a way of coming out.  And thus the family drama begins.  But this story is an interesting mix of Family dynamics, where almost everyone has a secret.  The unfolding of those secrets make for a funny and heartwarming Christmas Movie.   The music is great, with a couple good songs sung by Chris Brown.  I highly recommend it.  I’m adding it to my Christmas Collection!

3 Days til Christmas
