We were made aware that Christmas in Compton was on the horizon back in July.  We learned today that the comic Christmas tale will be released in theaters on November 9th.

The film is directed by David Raynr, and stars Keith David, Omar Gooding and Sheryl Lee Ralph.  Writing duties were sharred by David Raynr, Suzanne Broderick, and Robert Fedor

The film tales the tale of "Big Earl (David), owner of a Christmas tree lot in Compton, and a man with a big heart and a big vision, who demands success from everyone around him. All kinds of trouble erupts the week before Christmas when his son, Derrick (Gooding), part-time music producer and part-time Christmas tree lot employee, crosses the line to prove to Big Earl that he is a success."

The film is rated PG-13, so I will go out on limb and say the whole family should be able to enjoy it.

Watch the trailer below:

    Looks decently funny, but the trailer was ruined by that horrible voiceover. Was it even necessary are they trying to say black people can't read. Everything on screen didnt have to be read to us, actually nothing on screen had to be read. it made the trailer seem super cheap and sadly doesn't do anything to help the trailer.
