Storyline

On Christmas Eve, an old miser named Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the spirit of his former partner, Jacob Marley. The deceased partner was in his lifetime as mean and miserly as Scrooge is now and he warns him to change his ways or face the consequences in the afterlife. Scrooge dismisses the apparition but the first of the three ghosts, the Ghost of Christmas Past, visits as promised. Scrooge sees those events in his past life, both happy and sad, that forged his character. The second spirit, the Ghost of Christmas Present, shows him how many currently celebrate Christmas. The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come shows him how he will be remembered once he is gone. To his delight, the spirits complete their visits in one night giving him the opportunity to mend his ways.

'A Christmas Barrel'..... of garbage
8 January 2017 | by (Beverly Hills, CA) – See all my reviews

This is the dumbest fairy tale I've ever seen. I want to believe in what I'm watching, not be fed goofy tripe dreamed up by two English authors named Charles and Dick. Let's do a comparison of 4 fantasy-to-reality prospectives. Here we go.....

FANTASY #1: Scrooge is a jerk to everybody. He's rude, greedy, and pompous. REALITY #1: Scrooge would have his throat slashed in one of those alleyways he frequents on his way home.

FANTASY #2: Cratchit rejects purchasing a box of rubbers at the local drugstore so he can continue to seed his filthy wife who promptly drops more loads of kids (they have like 20 children and still counting). REALITY #2: Cratchit would save a couple of shillings off of his check every week so he can pump the old prostitute around the corner..... hey, who's gonna know?

FANTASY #3: The spirits scare Scrooge to death knowing the whole time that they were going to give him a second chance. REALITY #3: The spirits wouldn't even bother with this creep. Let him burn in hell with that scumbag Marley.

FANTASY #4: Tiny Tim endears himself to the entire city. "God bless us, everyone!", he chimes every three and a half minutes. REALITY #4: I would love to be the thief who steals his crutch so he has to crawl around on the floor. On Christmas Day, I would throw a snowball at his head and knock off that stupid cap he wears. "Gawd bless us, everybuddy!"-- FIVE ACROSS THE EYES!!!

This flick has all the charm of a really stinky holiday fruitcake.
