It was the winter of ’88, Chicago kid Jake Doyle (Winslow Fegley) was fixated in getting his hands on a Nintendo NES-and he knew that his videogame-loathing parents (Steve Zahn, June Diane Raphael) were going to be an impossible sell. As he and his cronies concoct schemes to raise and pool cash to get the precious system, he might wind up with a lesson about the season. Fun holiday story co-stars Neil Patrick Harris as the adult Jake; Kevin Jakubowski adapted his novel for the screen. 97 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.

    This movie really turned out to be very good, and I didn’t even mind that it stole several elements from other films. It has a decent mixture of The Princess Bride, A Christmas Story and Jingles All The Way. Those flaws are easily overlooked in favor of the overall success of the plot. The basic concept is in present day you have a father’s young daughter desperately wanting a phone for christmas and his refusal to do so to her annoyance. So to clarify his thinking, he relates a tale about when he was a kid and how hard he tried to get a Nintendo Entertainment System for Christmas. The cast are amazingly well picked both for the adults and children especially the kid actors as they perform pretty realistically how kids would act and plan to try and get their prize.
    Even though you will probably be able to see and make references to sections of the movie that line up with other movies by the end, it is still a fun and worthwhile holiday film to watch.
    Even if it didn’t receive any Oscar buzz, “The Post” is certainly a step above than the majority of recent films, which have all ranged from forgettable to downright terrible.
