Deck the Halls


An uptight Massachusetts dentist does not like his new neighbour across the street, a loud and obnoxious car salesman. Things go from bad to worse when the car salesman goes all out with the Christmas lights outside his house, erecting enough to serve as an intergalactic traffic signal. The dentist decides to sabotage this display, leading to a battle of wits between the two men while their wives look on helplessly.
