We can all relate to the holiday festivities over December, when family and friends get together to create the perfect recipe for conflict and disaster.

In Dinner with Friends, a charming new holiday comedy with all the trimmings that is now showing in cinemas, Abby (Kat Dennings — Thor, 2 Broke Girls) is looking forward to a laid-back Thanksgiving with her best friend Molly (Malin Akerman — 27 Dresses, Billions).

But the friends’ plans for a quiet turkey dinner go up in smoke when they’re joined by Molly’s new boyfriend and her flamboyant mother. Throw in some party crashers including Molly’s old flame, a wannabe shaman and a trio of “fairy gay mothers”, and it’s a recipe for a comically chaotic holiday no-one will ever forget — even if they wanted to!
