Calvin Carter, a successful business executive, has it all, but neglects those closest to him. On Christmas Eve, all that changes when the sign on his office building falls on him. He awakes in a hospital bed, attended to by Angie, a nurse who soon lets him know he has 12 days (12 chances) to get his act together and achieve the "perfect" Christmas Eve. If he doesn't, there will be dire consequences. Written by
12 Days of Christmas Eve - think "Scrooge" meets "Groundhog Day".
This Christmas special is nothing special. Steven Weber plays Calvin Carter, a wealthy businessman who took a failing family store and turned it into a thriving national chain. Of course, along the way, he left a lonely son, a bitter younger brother, an angry ex-wife and various other casualties.
After living "the best Christmas Eve" of his life, Calvin finds himself waking again that same morning with 12 chances to "get it right."
What follows is cute, but completely predictable.
I give it 6/10 - for having its heart in the right place.
