I watched A Very Murray Christmas last year when it was originally released on Netflix. I re-watched it last week and remembered how much I liked it! It’s a fairly laid-back Christmas special. It only got two stars on Netflix, but I kinda really love it. It’s different, full of familiar faces, and there’s singing. For the third day of blogmas, here’s my no-spoiler review!
Bill Murray doesn’t have the best luck in this throwback-feel Christmas special. That’s part of the reason I like it so much. This Netflix Original doesn’t have a strict storyline and feels like it’s naturally unfolding as it goes along. The cast did an amazing job, everyone was really great in it. Miley Cyrus even makes an appearance and sings a few lovely songs, holiday special gold. This isn’t your typical funny holiday movie, but has a deadpan delivery that makes me laugh.
Not everything always works out around the holidays and that’s okay. You work around that and do the best with what you have and what you’re able to do. The holiday season doesn’t need to be a stressful time. Take a note from A Very Murray Christmas and make the best out of it even if it’s not perfect!
This might not be for everyone, but if you have an hour to kill, like the guest stars, and could go for some festive songs, I suggest giving this a watch. Personally, I love watching Netflix Originals just as much as I love writing Netflix Original reviews.
Three blogs down, so much more to come!
