Heather Graham is an uninvited guest who wants to reveal imperfections in Brandy Norwood’s impressive life in the first trailer for Netflix’s Best. Christmas. Ever!
The holiday-themed feature from filmmaker Mary Lambert hits the streaming service Nov. 16. Best. Christmas. Ever! centers on Charlotte (Graham) dealing with jealousy over her college friend Jackie (Norwood) sending boastful holiday newsletters every year. After unexpectedly ending up on her former pal’s doorstep days before Christmas, Charlotte hopes to prove that Jackie’s life is more flawed than it appears.

The trailer shows Graham’s character dealing with her complicated feelings about her past with her erstwhile bestie. “Being here reminds me of everything I wanted to do with my life and didn’t,” Graham explains.
Later in the footage, Norwood’s Jackie tells her friend, “I knew you were sneaking around. What is your problem, girl?”
Jason Biggs and Matt Cedeño co-star, with Lambert (A Castle for Christmas) helming from a script by Todd Calgi Gallicano and Charles Shyer. Executive producers are Shyer, Steve Berman, Bryan Bordon, Jimmy Townsend and David M. Wulf.
In a recent interview with Netflix promotional site Tudum, Lambert explained that the two main characters have plenty of baggage to sort out. “It’s not as easy as it sounds, though,” the director said. “And I think for me, the movie tries to say that. Let’s find something to laugh at in all this craziness.”
Graham has two films — Suitable Flesh and The Other Zoey — releasing in October. Norwood, who is also known for her music career, recently starred on the ABC drama series Queens.
