A holiday-set romantic comedy wouldn't be complete without "lecherous holiday canaries," "cutthroat competitive pogo stick riding," and a "bonkers Rainforest Cafe." At least that's what the Happiest Season cast and filmmaker came up with during a fun round of Mad Libs with Entertainment Weekly.

EW rounded up writer-director Clea DuVall and the film's stars Mackenzie Davis, Alison Brie, and Mary Steenburgen for a holiday-themed version of Mad Libs where they had to describe the plot of their upcoming queer Hulu rom-com, and it's safe to say that things went off the rails — what else would you expect?

Watch the video above to see what wacky differences the cast and director came up with and how a few different verbs and nouns can change an entire movie, for better or for worse.

Happiest Season (streaming Nov. 25 on Hulu) stars Davis and Kristen Stewart as a young gay couple, Harper and Abby, about to spend their first holidays together. They're traveling to Harper's suburban home for her conservative family's annual Christmas party, but on the way there, Harper drops the bomb on Abby that she hasn't come out to her parents (Steenburgen and Victor Garber). Classic holiday shenanigans take on a new twist as Abby is forced to hide her real identity while trying to make a good impression on her girlfriend's family.
