Storyline

To superstar singer Ebony Scrooge, Christmas is just another day of the year - another day to exploit her entourage, insult her family and steal from the less fortunate, before a fateful Christmas Eve changes her tune forever. Enter the ghost of Marli Jacob, Ebony's former singing partner, who informs the impossible Diva that she will be visited by three spirits: the sharp-tongued Ghost of Christmas Past, the hard-drinking Ghost of Christmas Present and eventually, the Ghost of Christmas Future, who materializes in an episode of VH1's Behind the Music. Once Ebony realizes the errors of her miserly ways, she heads out to set the record straight, as only a true Diva can.

User Reviews

Suprisingly good for a VH1 movie!!
12 December 2002 | by Blondie_See all my reviews

Most of the made-for-VH1 movies are soooo awful, but this one is actually a decent, entertaining little gem. Great special effects, decent acting from everyone, especially Vanessa Williams, who played the bitchy diva to a hilt. John Taylor of Duran Duran was decent as well as the second spirit. A good little holiday movie to watch some night. 7/10
