Trivia

During the bar fight scene in the bar the bar tender calls his room mate Curtis and says, "Hey Curtis! It's Joey. Your room mate Joey... You know that new sound you were looking for? Well listen to this." He holds the phone out to pick up the sound of an LP being scratched back and forth. This is an homage to the 1985 film "Back to the Future" when Marty Mayfly is improvising on stage with a guitar and a back stage worker, Marvin Barry, calls his cousin Chuck Barry and says the same thing, "...You know that new sound you've been looking for? Well listen to this." He holds the phone out toward the stage to pick up Marty's guitar playing. See more »

A different spin on Dickens' A Christmas Carol
5 October 2014 | by ZooomaSee all my reviews

Finally something different in the Christmas genre. This made-for-TV movie has Dickens' A Christmas Carol getting all shook up to give it bunch of different situations not in the original story. Tom Arnold is excellent in the "Scrooge" role. He, of course, is visited by three ghosts meant to show him how he has every reason to stop being a scrooge. But all does not go as planned and that's what makes this refreshing. Unfortunately a low budget hinders this kinda unique story. Bright green grass with foamy looking snow covering portions of the ground? Just terrible. Throw in more money and a more talented director and you really coulda had something much better here. Still it's refreshing. Even though it was made for the ABC Family Channel, it's not exactly charming nor is it really family-friendly unless the family consists of only adults! It's still PG but does contain adult themes. Barely any Christmas music in it so not very Christmasy. But it kept my interest especially compared to so many repetitive and formulaic takes on the classic tale.

6.4 / 10 stars
