Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Christmas Eve is an ensemble holiday dramedy with several well-known actors (including Patrick Stewart, Jon Heder, Cheryl Hines, and Gary Cole) that's set in New York during a single memorable night when a blackout strands six groups of people in elevators overnight. There's almost no swearing (some jokes related to the term "private d--k," referring to a detective), violence, or sex (some flirting and a kiss), but some of the themes (layoffs and firings, for instance) may not resonate with younger viewers.
Flirting, a romantic kiss.
The film's events are put in motion by a car accident that looks pretty serious but in the end doesn't lead to any significant injuries. In a later scene, a woman fires a gun in the air to make a point, while a man comes close to falling from a tall building. Two men get into a brief scuffle until they're separated by friends.
One scene includes some suggestive dialog based on the phrase "private d--k," referring to a detective.
Everybody has the ability to change -- they just need to be able to take a step back and reflect upon who they really are and how they got this way. Unfortunately, people are often too busy to notice these things, and it might take an unusual event to jolt them out of their daily routine.
