The Christmas raunchfest The Night Before is both ridiculously hilarious in parts and excruciatingly boring in others.
Review by Matt CummingsThe holiday movie season is like having your parents over: they're fun until they're not, with interest quickly dwindling with every breath drawn. It's hard to understand why the formula is so misused: take the best elements of The Hangover, mix it with the zaniness of Christmas Vacation, with a little buddy/broad raunch from Neighbors, and you should get something really magical. The Night Before is not quite that movie: a stoner flick with lots of premise, some genuinely wild hilarity, but painfully absent for large sections. Facebook.
