Two neighbors compete to have the most wildly decorated house for Christmas.
All Steve (Broderick) wants to do is live a calm, ordered life in his small New England town. But his new neighbor Danny (DeVito) has big dreams and big plans to match - especially when it comes to Christmas. Danny creates a holiday light display bright enough to be seen from space, sending Steve through the roof. Will the neighbors be at each other's throats all season long, or will they discover the true meaning of the holidays?
