I'll Be Home for Christmas sucks the merry right out of Christmas. Obnoxious, greedy college student Jake (Taylor Thomas) would rather spend the holiday on an island with his girlfriend (Biel) than with his family in New York, so his father bribes him with a vintage Porsche if he'll come home. Jake gives in, but when his business of helping lug-head jocks pass exams backfires, he finds himself glued inside a Santa suit in the desert. He must hitchhike his way home in time to make good on his promise. Quite predictably, Jake learns the true meaning of Christmas. Stay home and rent A Christmas Story.
