People have mixed feelings about new festive favourite Father Christmas Is Back, which landed on Netflix on 7th November.
The film, which received a 13 per cent 'fresh' rating on Rotten Tomatoes, is causing quite a stir among fans of all things festive.
Despite the star-scattered cast and charming cheese factor, the movie has seriously divided viewers. Some of which took to Twitter to express their feelings.
You can watch the trailer here:
Father Christmas Is Back follows an eccentric family - coincidentally also named Christmas - who reunite for the Christmas holidays in a huge York mansion.
The film centres four sisters; played by Elizabeth Hurley, Tallulah Riley, Nathalie Cox and Caroline Quentin, as they re-connect with their long-lost father (Kelsey Grammer) and his 35-year-old girlfriend (April Bowlby).
Some Twitter users seemed to love the flick, with one person calling it 'the perfect Christmas movie'.
"The #Netflix film #FatherChristmasIsBack is Well Worth A Watch [sic]," one person said. "Not the usual #Christmas movie but full of stars".
"Aaah I'm watching Father Christmas Is Back on Netflix and I love it!" said a second.
Not everyone, however, was pleased with the star-studded seasonal watch.
"Father Christmas Is Back is a fantastically terrible Christmas movie," one user said.
"These Christmas movies don't require much to meet the genre. A little cheese, a little love, and toss in some nostalgia."
He continued: "Why blow money on Grammer, Hurley and [John] Cleese? @netflix failed [sic]".
This isn't the first time Kelsey Grammer has starred in a Christmas film.
The former Frasier star has previously stepped into the massive snow boots of Ebenezer Scrooge, in a 2004 adaptation of A Christmas Carol.
Netflix's festive favourite sees a mix of stars from both sides of the pond. Including John Cleese and Kris Marshall, as well as Ray Fearon from Coronation Street and April Bowlby from Two And A Half Men.
You can stream it on Netflix now.
