Another crappy holiday-themed movie on its way

From Iwatchstuff, "Matthew Broderick and Danny DeVito are rich, white suburbanites competing for the most impressive Christmas light display in their town in the new trailer for Deck the Halls, this holiday season's big shitfest. I swear this same movie comes out every year with a slightly altered cast and a different cute name based on a Christmas song. So why do I end up loving each new incarnation more than the last? Oh, right, that serum I drink that makes me retarded."

I remember one time when I worked in children's book and we were trying to pick a title for a Christmas story we were publishing. The head of marketing said "if it has the word Christmas in the title, it will sell several thousand more copies." That's the principle at work here, every year. People wanna see the new Christmas thing, whatever it is.

But you know what? Screw Christmas! It's October, I don't want to deal with this.

Why is it that Christmas just brings about such crappy, hateful movies? And poor Kristin Davis .. Shaggy DA and now this? She deserves much, much better
