A group of friends who always go on a wild night out on Christmas Eve decide to make this year’s bender their last one.
Perhaps the thought of a Christmas stoner comedy isn’t all that appealing but I’ll be damned, this somehow works. The Night Before is funny, irreverent and original while still managing to be endearing and yes, Christmassy. Plus it pulls off the rare trick of having genuinely funny cameos.
It’s no masterpiece but you can add this to the list of tolerable Christmas films along with Bad Santa.
