An original Brat TV movie. Oh, okay. Brat TV is a community of teenage content creators and social media influencers, sharing videos and shows through YouTube. Their Holiday Spectacular features all their generic, vapid faces, running around a mall at Christmas time and engaging in the most insipid “inspirational” storylines imaginable. Think a redeemed shoplifter, or a bored and lonely girl finding new friends. Heart-warming. It’s very much a paint-by-numbers Christmas film, trying to do the old Love Actually formula of several “interweaving” storylines, except this time they’re all teens with so little going on in their lives, a trip to the mall is ostensibly the focal point of their year.
