Carol's Christmas is Worth Catching:)
19 November 2012 | by (South Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

I have been in an early Christmas mood this year. It all started when I saw ads for the Countdown to Christmas on the Hallmark Channel last week. I don't even regularly watch the channel, but I ran across Richard Thomas in another movie and got hooked. I've seen 5 Hallmark movies this weekend, and I may still watch a few more. If I don't, then it was worth seeing 4 mediocre but fun films in order to discover this 1 extremely cute Christmas tale. Caution: This movie is for romantics and people who love happy endings without a complete overdose on the saccharine. It may also convert a few cynics and greedy workaholics.

If you're familiar with Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol, then expect the visits to the past, present, and future but with a comic twist. Carrie Fisher is the ghost, Eve, who visits Carol, a publishing CEO with a "bah humbug" attitude about Christmas, relationships, and just about everything she once valued except for the bottom line: making money. Carol's pace at work and nasty delivery of her terms are completely unbalanced with the memory of Eve, her old boss, who has died and left the company in Carol's misguided. Eve loved publishing good books for those who love reading good books. Christmas was special when Eve was in charge. Carol expects it to be just another workday and everyone in her employee to accept her way.

Carol is played by the incredibly beautiful and naturally talented Emmanuel Vaugier whom I've never seen before but found delightful. She was able to handle all the roles she played with great aplomb. The witty Carrie Fisher as Eve, the ghost of Carol's dead boss, is a bit sarcastic but really quite sweet as she carries out the job she was sent to do with Carol.

The movie really picks up when the two women embark on a journey that isn't one bit scary, cute as it can be, and bittersweet. This all makes it a well-made TV movie with a supporting cast who may be over the top for some (Carson Kressley is ebullient for sure!), but they are there to show their distress caused by Carol and, of course, for comic relief. And, of course, there is a love story in Carol's past, present, and future if she is capable of changing.

It's a Hallmark movie, so expect a happy ending. However, be on the lookout for one of those rare TV movies that you may want to put on your Christmas list for next year. It was a positive twist on a classic tale and neatly tied with a ribbon... a typewriter ribbon to be exact, but you'll have to watch the movie to figure that one out;) This movie helped me get into the much needed spirit, so enjoy it if this is your thing and have a Merry Christmas!!!
