Uneven comedy about a successful Chicago ad man (Ben Affleck) who, tired of spending Christmas alone, pays the family living in his childhood house (headed by James Gandolfini) a small fortune to "adopt" him for the holiday season, so he can relive the idyllic Christmases of his youth. Directed by Mike Mitchell, the film's screwball humor is a mixed bag of "naughty" and "nice," making this yuletide yukfest hardly the kind of family-friendly entertainment it could have been. Fleeting erotic images on a computer screen, brief comic violence, a drug reference and some crude language and humor. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
