THREE WISE MEN. ONE WILD CHRISTMAS.
Three best friends (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anthony Mackie) are going out on Christmas Eve in New York City as they always do… but a fourteen-year long tradition is about to end. The director and stars of 50/50 (2011) are reunited for a comedy that looks like they usually do whenever Rogen, James Franco and co-producer/writer Evan Goldberg are involved. Considering the amount of raunchy silliness and stoner jokes it’s amazing that there’s room for any kind of substance, but the spirit of Christmas is alive. Uneven, but funny most of the time, and a little sweet; the same is true for the leads.
