People Are Calling Netflix's New Movie Father Christmas Is Back 'So Bad It's Good'

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.

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.
