From the tacky plastic purple unicorn every little girl desired desperately in her stocking, to the blizzard of outdoor lights that could induce epilepsy in a snowman, all the most grating aspects of Yuletide were here.

It is Christmas Eve and Andrew Bennett (Stephen Merchant) thinks his daughter's yuletide dreams are about to be dashed because he hasn't managed to find the gift she really wants: Sparklehoof the Unicorn Princess. However, when his annoying neighbour Dev D'Cruz (Asim Chaudhry) bags the last one left online - by click and collect - the pair embark on a 300-mile quest to collect it. Andrew expects it to be an exhausting nightmare, whereas for lonely Dev, it is a chance to go on the best road trip of his life, in a comedy that is funny and tender.Mike Bradley, The Guardian, 24th December 2018
