Charlie and his family move from London to run a bed and breakfast by the sea. Charlie and his friends Ben and Alison always want to do the right thing, but somehow they just keep getting into trouble.
The movie follows Hank in the run up to Christmas as he prepares for a new baby brother. But Hank's life never runs smoothly and soon Miss Adolf (played by Felicity Montagu) is turning Mr Rock's Rudolph the Rock'n'Roll Reindeer into a one-woman Christmas Carol - two school inspectors are getting injured in a bizarre sleighing accident and Mr Joy (played by Javone Prince) is trying to cancel Christmas altogether. In his attempt to drag triumph from the glittering jaws of doom, Hank will ice skate into disaster, nearly crash a Christmas tree into a crowd, get himself and his best friends arrested, get his favourite teacher sacked and lose the love of his life. This time, he really has let everyone down. Surely even Hank can't get out this one. Luckily for us, there's no way to tell Hank that.Written by

A troubled boy tried to be good on this Christmas!
I haven't seen the television series, but I did not find any difficult to follow the film. The story started with a little introduction about a troubled high school student Hank. A few days to go for the Christmas that celebrated grandly in his school, but two unexpected visitors lead to cancel it. Followed by Hank's family is ready to welcome a new member, a baby to be born. With all the complications around, he meets a famed singer and be friends. Now how everything comes together to celebrate the festival as planned takes us to the final segment.
Of all the Christmas films I have seen in this season, this one looked much better actually. Because all those were either the US or the Canadian films, and they all looked the same. A single woman with her young daughter, romance, Christmas preparation blah blah blah... So this one was completely different and a little fun.
I don't have any idea about the series, so surely I'm missing something, like I'm not used to the characters or the type of the comedies. But I enjoyed watching with whatever it offered. I have seen many films like 'Inbetweeners', 'Entourage' et cetera. Most importantly, they did not affect me from having a good time, because of the lack of the knowledge of its original. This film might look silly, like the baby birth scene, but for a comedy, it'll work. So I think not a bad film, especially on the occasions like this.
