After debuting Christmas 2017, the movie went on to become a word-of-mouth, box office hit.

Scott Freeman, general manager of the theater commented, “We thought it would be an exciting movie for New Year’s Eve because it appeals to all ages.” He added, “The movie will end at 11:15 p.m., allowing movie-goers to count down the new year at home.”
