“..it may be a tiny thing, but to borrow a phrase from Preston Sturges, the film is a little bit of "Christmas in July"..”
by Michael Sragow [Orange County Register]
“..the inexhaustible indie filmmaker might not have struck gold twice in a row, but the silver linings of "Happy Christmas" are largely engaging, truthful and affecting..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]
