Did You Know?

Jane's boss' name in this movie is Mr Jorkin. Ebenezer's Scrooge's boss' name is also Mr. Jorkin in the 1951 version of The Christmas Carol starring Alistar Sims. The name is too specific for this to be a coincidence. Obviously, this was a reference to the older movie.See more »

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlewoman, 31 December 2013
Author: wes-connors from Los Angeles

After a mishap on the road, single advertising vice-president Nancy McKeon (as Jane Berry) finds herself married, with children. All mixed up, Ms. McKeon has apparently landed ten years in the future. You won't know what's going on until the end, but you may have seen this story before. They're calling it "situational amnesia." McKeon has traded her male model-type boyfriend for snuggly Steven Eckholdt (as Sam Keller), the director of a drug and alcohol center for the homeless. McKeon's work has become mothering two cute kids, cooking, cleaning and volunteering for churchy Connecticut groups. Funniest scenes involve bickering parents Paul Dooley and Dixie Carter (as George and Frederica Berry). Most tired scene involves McKeon's Jewish pal and four swishy Christmas chums watching "Sunset Boulevard" with Gloria Swanson. She's right, "It's the pictures that got small."

**** Comfort and Joy (12/1/03) Maggie Greenwald ~ Nancy McKeon, Steven Eckholdt, Dixie Carter, Paul Dooley
