The only real positive takeaway from Netflix’s dreadful yuletide family comedy Family Switch, other than the odd mild chuckle, is that it acts as a canary in the coal mine for body swap flicks.
Netflix’s first tentpole Christmas movie, Best. Christmas. Ever!, arrives a tad later than usual. Now that it’s here, you’ll be wanting to fall back even further.
Bill Burr is a whip-sharp comedian with a brazen point-of-view, which makes his filmmaking debut Old Dads a retrograded anomaly.
