The festive film, starring Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding and Emma Thompson, has been criticized for its inability to cement itself as a classic Christmas film, while others call it a & # 39; clumsy, charmless disappointment & # 39 ;.

Review of the film, inspired by the late George Michael and even with new music from him, turned out to be so negative that others could not understand what the Wham! frontman & # 39; had done to earn this & # 39;

In the film, written by Emma Thompson and her husband Greg Wise, the character Kate of Emilia, who is often unlucky, finds work as a Christmas elf for a department store and finds unexpected love with Tom, played by Henry Golding.

However, the cheerful message of the film left a sour taste in the mouth of many.

Give the film a measly two stars, The Guardian branded Last Christmas & unintentionally funny and unintentionally scary & # 39 ;.

& # 39; The combination of Michael & # 39; s music, a cozy festive aesthetic, a picturesque landscape in London and an irresistible fascination for what changes the plot, makes Last Christmas quite palatable in a way of looking half-while-drunk but this is really a clumsy, charmless disappointment. Last Christmas was canceled. & # 39;

Meanwhile, Variety says: & # 39; As much as we comment on & # 39; Last Christmas & # 39 ;, longing for a beautifully packaged package of acerbic fun, the film fails. It is not so smart, toasty and affectionate as it is the faux version of those things.

& # 39; The script feels like a rejected first version with indecent padding with one liner and a sloppy, poorly thought out story. It is a beautifully wrapped Christmas gift that is filled with rotten turkey remains. & # 39;

Another star rating with one was given away by BBC, who raged: & # 39; What did George Michael do to earn this? Why should the singer-songwriter and former Wham! be associated with a brutally nonsensical and artificial romantic comedy when he is no longer around to object?

Oh no! Review of the film, inspired by the late George Michael, turned out to be so negative that others could not understand what the Wham! frontman & # 39; had done to earn this & # 39;

& # 39; The visuals are so twinkly and the sentiments are so mushy that some people will see it as a holiday treat. But it is appropriate that Kate spends half of the film on wearing eleven boots that curl up at the end, because Last Christmas is really toe-curling stuff. & # 39;

The digital spy reviewed: & # 39; It doesn't all come together for a true Christmas classic, even if it wears its tinsel firmly on its sleeve. There is a lot of festive feeling in Last Christmas, but it is hard to imagine that you will return to it year after year. & # 39;

Meanwhile, there were a few favorable reviews, with the Hollywood reporter claims, & # 39; it is a misfire by just about every measure, but it gets a warm feeling because it is determined not to be like something else that is currently in circulation.

& # 39; There is little to say about the last act without stealing the thunder of the film. But a viewer who has not been put off in the first hour of the film can go well with his last left turn. & # 39;

rich, which gives the film a generous 3 out of 5 stars, claims: & # 39; The wet chemistry between Golding and Clarke needs some time to come to light, but ultimately does so in the hands of a sweetheart, clever, funny script by Emma Thompson (who also plays the difficult mother of Kate), Greg Wise and Bryony Kimmings …

& # 39; Although it will not be remembered as one of the great Christmas movies, Last Christmas provides enough moments of heart and humor to keep the festive spirit alive. & # 39;
