Storyline

It's Christmas time and Al, the Grinch tells Teddy and Laurie that they have to come in tomorrow to wait for something important to be delivered. When they complain to Al. he retorts by saying that years ago when he was starting, his mentor Maury Chekof did the same thing to him, so he has no sympathy for them. Later that evening Al's at home and Maury shows up as a ghost and tells Al he's going to be visited by three ghosts. And he is and they show him how his life was, is and could be.

Al Floss meets THE Spirits
26 December 2016 | by ByrdzSee all my reviews

The plot involves Teddy and co-worker Laurie being forced to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day by inconsiderate and selfish Al Floss because he is going to Hawaii for the Holidays.

Al is subsequently visited by several spirits... they look just like people he knows but WE know that they are really the spirits that they claim to be .. WE know "A Christmas Carol" by heart and recognize Ebenezer Scrooge even when he looks like an agent. Al is shown the past, present and future and Al being Al the final punch line is a riot !

Alex Rocco tends to over-react / act but that's just him in this role. The laugh track is impossible !

It is certainly worth checking out on line (especially if you are trying to see many versions of the tale.)

It is a funny take on the classic story.
