We hit our first trifecta here today with A Very Murray Christmas, an extravaganza as channeled through Oscar-phase Murray backer Wes Anderson’s fever dreams. Netflix comes through again with singing, dancing, stars, and the usual Bill Murray affable oddness. Here’s what each of us has to say.

NAVANI’S CHOICE

I can’t think of a better way to get into the holiday spirit than seeing Bill Murray in a tuxedo singing alongside George Clooney. That’s what we’re promised in the Netflix musical comedy that marries Scrooged with Glee and throws in a high profile cast for good measure.

As we count down the days to Star Wars, nothing but Star Wars, crazy ol’ Star Wars, all over the land, here comes Murray to dust off his lounge singer for a few minutes, before veering into the land of gleefully strange (and celebrity-packed). Sofia Coppola directs, and Chris Rock, George Clooney, Amy Poehler, Michael Cera (as a skeevy talent manager) join Murray in his mighty yuletide madness.

Bill Murray’s star-studded Christmas special is finally here! Will his delivery of holiday cheer be as weird as his hipster sightings? As charming as his late night appearances? Oh, let us feast in his delights!
