This soundtrack to one of Robin Williams ’s last films opens with Rufus Wainwright singing “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” backed by a 55-piece orchestra. The album then features mostly to hip holiday originals like Anna Su ’s mischievous “Santa Will Be Flying Over the Moon,” Spencer Shapeero ’s meditative “The Weather Outside” and FM Radio’s galloping “More Than I Wished For.” Mr. Wainwright returns at the end with his own “Christmas Is for Kids.” A cozy collection of cutting-edge noëls.
Director: Tristram Shapeero. Cast: Joel McHale, Lauren Graham, Clark Duke, Oliver Platt, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Tim Heidecker, Candice Bergen and Robin Williams. Boyd Mitchler and his family must spend Christmas with his estranged family of misfits.
