It's Al Bundy's Life!
1 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A classic take on a classic film, "It's a Wonderful Life," with a twist. In this case, Al has a Christmas account at Marcy's bank. She is alone during the holidays while her husband goes home to his mother. He gets to the bank too late and they already have their Christmas Party. Al has mature customers right before closing time. When the bank is closed, he gets idea and decides to babysit the children of the shopping mothers and does his version of "Twas a Night Before Christmas" with the Bundys. When that fails to get him money, he goes home to face his family who expected Christmas presents. But fate has a surprise when he touches the Christmas lights.
