Consensus: Although Queen Latifah's bountiful life-affirming spirit permeates the film, director Wayne Wang is unable to revive this remake with any real flair.

It may not be much -- it's a remake of a 1950 Alec Guinness film -- but it is as bright as a Christmas bauble.

Might not be in the first tier of holiday classics, but its winning cast led by its captivating star make this one you'll want to keep in your Christmas viewing rotation.

An awful lot makes no sense in Jeffrey Price and Peter Seaman's script, starting with its basic premise.

Queen Latifah remains here an utterly imperturbable, warm and human presence.

Funny, kind of romantic, and shows you that some of the things in life you might think are important probably are not. It's a film to help you apperciate… More
