With cameos from Chris Rock, Michael Cera, Amy Poehler and more, Bill Murray has the most disastrous but amazing Christmas ever.

After nobody shows up for his Christmas special, Bill has to pull together the most random-yet-hilarious Christmas feel-good ever. This includes a jam session with alt-rock band Phoenix, with Jason Schwartzman on the drums, and supposed-real-life-girlfriend Jenny Lewis as his trusted sidekick.
(Here's the song with Phoenix, just in case you'd like to hear it.)
Maya Rudolph does an homage to Darlene Love with Paul Shaffer on the piano - because, why wouldn't they? (Plus, holy guacamole, Maya Rudolph! What a voice!)
Murray also coaches a young couple after their winter wedding was ruined (played by Schwartzman and Rashida Jones). The pair, along with David Johanson and Maya Rudoph sing along to Todd Rundgren's "I Saw The Light," and just like that, the soon-to-be-married couple are happy again.
Then, no two ways about it, and through a series of strange events, Miley Cyrus and George Clooney make their appearance. Knock Miley all you want, but she can SING. Clooney on the other hand... Not so much. Well, he's not his Aunt, Rosemary, after all.

So all in all, Bill is a hit! Though we were expecting more out of it (it wasn't all that long) - it's totally worth the little smackeral of Holiday Cheer. And don't forget to stay after the credits! There's one last little joke from Maya Rudolph in there.
Watch it now on Netflix!
Amy Cooper is a writer and pop culture fact nerd, and on multiple occasions has been referred to as a “Walking iPod.”
