The Night Before

We both know Miley was flawless.

It’s my second time watching this and it’s held up well. I’d forgotten that it’s in part a loose adaptation of A Christmas Carol, which works for getting laughs but also serves the plot. It brings some much needed structure to a film about a night long Christmas Eve bender.

Perhaps it’s too soon to call this a Christmas classic but if you have to endure a few holiday films every year, you could do worse than adding The Night Before to your list.
