Each year at RunPee we get a little closer to reviewing all the Christmas films — at least, all of the good and/or notorious ones that popular culture appreciates. One year I tried to take on some Hallmark Christmas movies and found I couldn’t quite go that far down the sickly sweet rabbithole, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a full Santa sack of great film reviews for your browsing pleasure.

What people are saying
about the RunPee app.

RunPee is an excellent app that has all the info you need when going to the movies. Whenever I go to a movie, I open up the app and know when the best time to dip to the bathroom is. They have pee times for movies just a few hours after their release and it shows the dedication the team has for the service. Definitely recommend for any movie-goer.

Virgin Watch Review: A Merry Friggin Christmas

Accidental Rewatch: A Merry Friggin Christmas – Right after I watched the brilliant TV show Community, I turned around and rewatched it, this time to introduce it to RunPee Mom. Community is that good! Then looked for other things Joel McHale starred in. Friggin Christmas had McHale and also Robin Williams in the lineup. What could go wrong? Too bad this movie was still so relentlessly awful that forgetting I viewed AND reviewed it here three years ago was easy. For your Christmas Community fix, skip back to the annual Christmas episodes, or even Chevy Chase’s still-Grinchy-but-sometimes-amusing Christmas Vacation.

All About A Christmas Carol — and there have been many!

Well, that’s what we have through 2020. We add more each year and vow to get them ALL someday (except for those Hallmark Christmas specials…we just can’t go there. (If you adore Hallmark movies, want to review them for us on RunPee? There are perks!) Merry Christmas, RunPeeps!

Update: We’ve added a bunch of new Christmasy reviews for 2021 and more are going up through the holidays until January 2022. In fact, UK RunPeep Rob is making an entire section for every movie and TV episode based on A Christmas Carol. It’s going to be huge. Stay tuned. 😉
