We have our first look at the holiday film “Candy Cane Lane” on Prime Video. The film stars Eddie Murphy in his first-holiday film! It reunites director Reginald Hudlin, and producer Brian Grazer with Murphy since their 1992 hit, “Boomerang”. You can check out the trailer above!
The screenplay for “Candy Cane Lane” comes from Kelly Younger, who was inspired to write the film based on his own holiday experiences on Candy Cane Lane in El Segundo, California.
Things may be about holiday cheer and goodwill unless you’re constantly competing with your neighbors to have the best Christmas decorations. Some people would go to extreme lengths to make their house “the best” in the neighborhood.
Here is the synopsis for Prime Video’s “Candy Cane Lane”
Eddie Murphy stars in this holiday comedy adventure about a man on a mission to win his neighborhood’s annual Christmas home decoration contest. After Chris (Eddie Murphy) inadvertently makes a deal with a mischievous elf named Pepper (Jillian Bell) to better his chances of winning, she casts a magic spell that brings the 12 Days of Christmas to life and wreaks havoc on the whole town. At the risk of ruining the holidays for his family, Chris, his wife Carol (Tracee Ellis Ross), and their three children must race against the clock to break Pepper’s spell, battle deviously magical characters, and save Christmas for everyone.
