A Christmas misfire
2 August 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

A dismal attempt to replay 'A Christmas Carol' with technological trappings and homages to 'Back to the Future'.

After making fun of Dickens and his wonderful story, and introducing such cack-handed ideas as Candy Cane Chronometers, the movie has the Ghost of Christmas Past deciding that he's had enough of showing people the error of their ways and would rather stay in 1965. So the Ghost of Christmas Present (Andrea Roth, who looks good in a hot tub) travels back to put the timeline right. Tob Arnold seebs to habe a bad cold in the Scrooge role, but he does well considering the surrounding debacle. His reasons for disliking Christmas, and the scenes in which he revisits them, could have made for a poignant film in the right hands.

Shame 'Chasing Christmas' isn't touching, funny, clever, or anything its makers think it is. It doesn't help that they present 'A Christmas Carol' as a fictional story that the characters in the movie are well aware of. And if I could be pedantic for a moment, 'The Star Wars Holiday Special' aired in November, not on Christmas Eve.
