Really didn’t know what to expect from this thing, other than I was going in thinking it was one hell of a weird thing for Netflix to produce – and I’m not very Christmas-y, or into Christmas specials. But hey, I like Murray, I like weird things, and when I learned that it was directed by Sofia Coppola, I thought that made it worth checking out. And guess what, I really had a good time watching this. Yup, it’s incredibly weird, I loved the guests, and it simply had a nice Coppola vibe to it. Definitely worth a watch. Also, it sure made me miss seeing Jason Schwartzman regularly on the screen (long live Bored to Death).
Not to say it’s awful, but definitely my least favorite Sofia Coppola film – yes, I liked Marie Antoinette more than this. Felt bored through most of it. When it comes to the “kids doing bad things” category, I much preferred Spring Breakers.
