Trailer for Almost Christmas, starring Jessie T. Usher, Gabrielle Union and Danny Glover.
Almost Christmas tells the festive story of a beloved patriarch who asks his family for one gift this holiday season: to get along. If they can honor that wish and spend five days under the same roof without killing one another, it will be a Christmas miracle.It’s an interesting thing to see your favorite actors (and actresses) age before your eyes. Even though Danny Glover has aged wonderfully — the dude looks good — he loves playing up how old he is. It’s a troubling look for a kid who remembers him being sprightly in Witness or the franchise. Remember when he used to always say, “I’m getting too old for this shit.” It was great, but feels a bit more depressing when he does a throwback to it in this trailer.
Forgive my judgment, and this could just be due to my upbringing in a large family with its own doses of holiday drama, but the trailer for Almost Christmas just seems like a dose of [over the top] family drama that is not my idea of escape when going to the theaters.
