Home for the Holidays

Three stars

Mental illness handled as quirk, it’s unbelievable & sappy yet relatable.  Will she get the guy?  Will the old days be remembered?  Downey Jr. straddles the line of charming and obnoxious.  It’s probably worth revisiting for those looking for an autumnal holiday feature
