Storyline

Allen Karroll hates Christmas ever since his ex-girlfriend humiliated him in front of thousands of people one Christmas. As a man who writes greeting cards for a living, this proves to be a hinderance. He also hates the man who lives across the street, Zeb Rosecog, who seems to take delight in tormenting him, who also happens to be the former CEO of Karroll's greeting card company. One day, Karroll is visited by the ghost Jacob Marley (related to Bob Marley), as well as the ghost of Christmas present, past and future (in that order) who all happen to have come to the wrong address, and had actually meant to visit Rosecog. During this experience, Karroll learns a lot about himself as well as Rosecog, and discovers that he and Rosecog have a lot in common, and decides to help Rosecog to see the light, and rediscover the joy of Christmas.

Cute, Updated Classic
6 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love "Karroll's Christmas"! It is such a clever updating of the most redone Christmas classic, Dicken's "A Christmas Carol". It is both truly sentimental and very funny. I like some of the special effects and the character of Rosecog is an interesting interpretation of Scrooge. There is a twist regarding how the ghosts conduct their visit, that I find truly original.

One review on this board said the acting was bad. I disagree. All the actors and actresses are good and play their parts well, adding small touches that make their characters more interesting and authentic. I also have liked Wallace Shawn since "The Princess Bride" and he is really good here, too. Larry Miller always makes me smile.

Also, a bit of trivia - Bharbara Egan, who plays Mrs. Coolidge, is better known to all MSTies everywhere as Troy's Aunt Betty in the 1990 Canadian movie, "Final Sacrifice" - riffed by Mystery Science Theater (Rowsdower?) There is a small amount of mild swearing and some very mild sexual innuendo, but it would be fine for families, with just a bit of parental guidance.

I have a copy of this movie, but unfortunately recorded it myself from television and then never finalized it and now I have a different DVD player that won't recognize it - curses! I am trying to find a copy and would gladly add it to "Miracle on 34th Street" - the original, "It's a Wonderful Life" - in B&W, "The Bishop's Wife", "Christmas in Connecticut", "The Santa Clause", "Holiday Inn", "Jingle All The Way", and the "Charlie Brown Christmas", "Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" cartoons from the 60's, as a yearly favorite.
