LUIS GUZMÁN, JOHN LEGUIZAMO, DEBRA MESSING, ALFRED MOLINA AND FREDDY RODRIGUEZ STAR IN THE HILARIOUS HOLIDAY FILM

 

 

NOTHING LIKE THE HOLIDAYS

 

 

Available on DVD and Blu-ray™ on Tuesday, October 27, 2009

From Anchor Bay Entertainment




 

BEVERLY HILLSCA – Luis Guzmán, John Leguizamo, Debra Messing, Alfred Molina and Freddy Rodriguez headline an all-star cast in the humorous and heartwarming story of one unforgettable family holiday in Nothing Like the Holidays, available on DVD and Blu-ray™ on October 27, 2009 from Anchor Bay Entertainment. This “laugh-out-loud funny and downright touching” (MoviePictureFilm.com) film is directed by Alfredo de Villa (Washington Heightsfrom a script by Alison Swan and Rick Najera. SRP is $29.98 for the DVD and $39.98 for the Blu-ray™ edition.

 

Star magazine’s Marshall Fine called Nothing Like the Holidays “A Spicy Holiday Treat.”  Said the Chicago Tribune’sChristopher Borelli, the film is “What we need at the holidays.”  Added the Associated Press’s Jake Coyle, Nothing Like the Holidays is comfort food.”

 

Nothing Like the Holidays also stars Melonie Diaz (Be Kind Rewind), Vanessa Ferlito (Death Proof), Jay Hernandez (Friday Night Lights), and Elizabeth Peña (Rush Hour).

 

The Nothing Like the Holidays DVD bonus features include audio commentary with actor Freddy Rodriguez, director Alfredo De Villa, and producer Robert Teitel (Barbershop), as well as “Nothing Like A Family: Cast Reunion,” bloopers, and the theatrical trailer. The Nothing Like the Holidays 2-disc Blu-ray™ edition includes those special features, as well as a Picture-In-Picture Insider Exclusive with the cast and a digital copy of the film.

 

It’s Christmastime and the far-flung members of the Rodriguez family are converging at their parents’ home in Chicago to celebrate the season and rejoice in their youngest brother’s safe return from combat overseas. For Jesse (Freddy Rodriguez, “Six Feet Under,” Bobby), coming home has rekindled feelings for an old flame, although she can’t seem to forgive him for leaving. His older sister Roxanna, a struggling actress, has been chasing her Hollywood dreams for years with little to show for it. Meanwhile, eldest brother Mauricio (John Leguizamo, Ice Age, Moulin Rouge!) brings home a high-powered executive wife (Debra Messing, “Will & Grace,” “The Starter Wife”) and finds himself caught between his mother, who is eager for grandchildren, and his spouse, who would rather raise capital than a kid.

 

In the course of one eventful week, traditions will be celebrated, secrets revealed and major life decisions made. It all begins when Anna announces to her children she is leaving their father Eduardo (Alfred Molina, Spiderman 2). The shock waves from this familial upheaval prompt Roxanna, Mauricio and Jesse, each in their own way, to reevaluate the past and rethink the future. But when the Rodriguezes learn that one of their own is facing a true crisis, they instinctively pull together: Old resentments are forgotten, familial bonds are reaffirmed and the healing power of laughter works its magic as the family discovers they are much stronger than they ever realized.  Nothing Like The Holidays is a “Heartfelt” (Chicago Sun-Times, Roger Ebert) gift for the whole family.
