Desperate to avoid his family's judgment about his perpetual single status, Peter convinces his best friend Nick to join him for the holidays and pretend that they're now in a relationship. (Netflix)

Apparently this is the first Netflix holiday film that focuses on a gay pairing, which seems odd to say in 2021, but I guess better late than never?

Anyway I am a sucker for Netflix holiday movies, and this is definitely one of those. It is almost aggressively inoffensive and the Peter's family is about 70 percent too supportive of everyone and everything. Still, that's basically why I like the genre, so this movie was what I was looking for.

Oh, and and Jennifer Coolidge is unsurprisingly fantastic.

This was fine, but I need sequels/spin offs about Emmett's holiday at the dog hotel and Kevin the Snow Plough guy's whole deal - with like 6x his songs.

We just watched this. It was hilarious and sweet. Philemon Chambers actually made me believe that he could be worth turning down Luke MacFarlane for, which...look, I was a fan of Killjoys, OK? Michael Urie was just fantastic, and the supporting cast were all fantastic. I was VERY glad that there was no uncomfortable coming-out part of the story. It was a happy story for all involved. (Now I want the sequel in which Luke MacFarlane takes over the apartment in LA and finds love with Wentworth Miller.)

The one thing that I wish they'd found a way around was having Nick be a. a handyman and b. the one non-white person apparently in all of New Hampshire.
