Why We Love It
“This 1995 quirky family dramedy makes its Blu-ray debut under Shout! Factory’s new Shout Select line on October 3rd and is worth checking out, especially if you’ve never seen it before. This will make a really good appetizer that’ll get you ready for the upcoming holiday season.” – Alien Bee
“Home For The Holidays has an amazingly-talented cast. The story of dreading going home for the holidays is something many people can relate to. The film culminates in a hilariously unforgettable dinner table scene, which alone makes this film definitely worth checking out. Shout! Factory’s Blu-ray release includes a stellar new video transfer that makes this a must own for any fan of the film.” – Kyle Nolan, No(R)eruns.net
“The underrated Home for the Holidays is perhaps Jodie Foster's best film...or, according to the audio commentary, at least the one she's most happy with. It's aged quite well thanks to great performances from the ensemble cast, smart direction, and a wonderful screenplay by W.D. Richter that's complemented by obvious care from the cast and crew. I hadn't seen it in years but will most likely watch it at least once every November, which is more the enough reason to consider Shout Factory's new Blu-ray worth picking up… Highly Recommended.” – Randy Miller III, DVD Talk
