"Very Dysfunctional Family Holiday"
What You Need To Know:

The lesbian couple wants their sexual immorality to be “accepted” and even “celebrated.” HAPPIEST SEASON also has some foul language and other negative content.
HAPPIEST SEASON is a politically correct Christmas comedy streaming on Hulu about a lesbian couple who go home to one of their families home on Christmas, but the parents have no idea their daughter is homosexual. HAPPIEST SEASON is mildly entertaining, with some positive references to Christmas, but it has a strong Romantic, politically correct worldview promoting homosexual perversion and contains some foul language.
Harper, an accomplished newspaper journalist, wants to go home for Christmas to see her family, but her girlfriend, Abby, has reservations about Christmas since her parents died. Eventually, Abby consents to going home with Harper for Christmas. However, there’s only one problem. Harper’s parents don’t know she’s a lesbian.
Once the couple arrives, Abby stays in the basement while Harper goes back to her childhood room. Over the next few days, Harper assimilates back into her old family patterns. She’s the golden daughter with accolades to her name and a good head on her shoulders. Meanwhile, Harper’s sister Jane is a bit odd and treated as such by her family. Harper’s other sister, Sloane, appears to have it all too, expect for the fact that she left her law practice to start her own business. There’s an evident abundance of competition between the sisters. Also, Harper’s mother has started an Instagram account for her husband’s mayoral campaign. The campaign consumes most of his attention.
At dinner one night, Harper’s old high school boyfriend joins them for dinner, hoping to rekindle a romance with Harper. This is awkward for Abby, because she wants to propose to Harper over the holiday. Things continue to be awkward all around, but events come to a head at the family’s annual Christmas party. Will it be the “happiest season” after all?
HAPPIEST SEASON follows many typical holiday movie tropes and does hold some entertainment value mainly due to the family dynamics on screen. These dynamics no doubt will mirror or remind many viewers of what it’s like when their family comes together. That said, there’s one scene where the sound in a bathroom is a bit strained. Despite this, the actors perform their characters’ quirks to the letter. HAPPIEST SEASON has a mixed worldview. For obvious reasons, it’s very politically correct and pro-homosexual. The lesbian couple kisses, performs implied sodomy, and wants their immoral sexuality to be “accepted” as well as “celebrated.” There are also, however, some pro-family elements, aspects of forgiveness, a positive reference to faith, and even a few Christmas carols. All in all, though, because of the movie’s foul language and politically correct, homosexual elements, media-wise viewers will find HAPPIEST SEASON unacceptable.
