Review of “Candy Cane Lane”

Candy Cane Lane

Candy Cane Lane

A timeless family comedy, with the great Eddie Murphy making a pact with a mischievous elf. It’s a very Hollywood, very American, very festive production that seems almost indistinguishable from others.

Yes, “Candy Cane Lane” is all that and more: the elves, with their charming animation, are by far the funniest part of a movie that, although it won’t go down in history, does offer a festive (and Christmassy) time for both young and old who believe in Christmas.

Eddie Murphy’s timeless charm is truly remarkable: a man who seemingly doesn’t age, portraying a thirty-something father despite being 62 years old. His acting skills remain unaltered, at least in this film where he can’t fully unleash his ironic humor or mischievous side.

A film for children of all ages, enjoyable but not a masterpiece, that arrives every year as just another holiday product.

Before the world comes to an end.

Enjoy!
