If you’re searching for a brand-new holiday movie to add to your streaming queue, then look no further than Candy Cane Lane, which is a cross between The Christmas Chronicles and Christmas with the Kranks

The Prime Video film stars Eddie Murphy and Tracee Ellis Ross as a husband-wife duo. Candy Cane Lane is available to stream as of December 1, and it is already gaining buzz due to its all-star cast and family-friendly plot. In fact, it recently claimed the number one spot on Prime Video’s list of top movies.

In Candy Cane Lane, Eddie Murphy stars as a dad named Chris, who’s so determined to win his neighborhood’s annual Christmas decoration contest that he makes a deal with an elf who casts a magical spell. Although the pact betters his chances of winning, it also wreaks havoc on the town. So, Chris must enlist the help of his wife (Ross) and his kids to reverse the charm before it’s too late. The question is: Can they save Christmas?  

In addition to Murphy and Ross, Candy Cane Lane also stars Jillian Bell, Thaddeus J. Mixson, Ken Marino, Nick Offerman, Robin Thede, Chris Redd, Genneya Walton, Madison Thomas, D.C. Young Fly, Riki Lindhome, Anjelah Johnson-Reyes, Lombardo Boyar, Danielle Pinnock and Timothy Simons.
