The holiday comedy revolves around a young married couple, both children of divorced parents, who have to attend four different Christmas Day family celebrations.

"I've always been a big fan of dysfunctional family comedies in (the) vein of 'Annie Hall,' 'Home for the Holidays' and 'Flirting With Disaster,' " Jenson said. "I come from a big, messed-up family, so I get that big, messed-up family world with all its humor and discomfort; it's right up my alley."
