Plot Summary: Steve (Matthew Broderick) is a typical, suburban dad, blessed with an attractive wife (Kristin Davis), a lovely daughter (Alia Shawkat), and a wonderful home. His perfectly organized life would be just about ideal if it were not for his obnoxious neighbor, Danny (Danny DeVito). To say that the two are polar opposites would be an understatement. Danny’s loud and outlandish personality is the type that can get under anyone’s skin. He doesn’t mean to offend; it’s just the way he is. When Danny decides to put up the world’s largest Christmas light display during the holiday season, the ensuing chaos drives Steve to the breaking point. He will do anything to thwart his neighbor’s attention-seeking ploy and the two are soon butting heads like never before. Oddly enough, Steve decides to beat Danny at his own game and starts to flaunt his home with an elaborate decoration of his own.
