Storyline

Ebony Scrooge is a one of the world's most successful pop singers. Yet her cold hearted soul and nasty attitude makes her lack a lot of holiday cheer and makes her band and manager, anything but happy. While in New York, Ebony is visited by her former singing partner, Marli Jacob, who claims that she will be visited by three spirits: Ghost of Christmas Past, Ghost of Christmas Present, and Ghost of Christmas Future who will hopefully turn Ebony's life around. Written by Kristine <IrisNo11>

Dont pay any attention to the negatives about this TV Movie!
23 December 2001 | by pettyfogSee all my reviews

Ever notice how some of these self appointed "experts" HATE it when anyone plays a role as if it were a real-life person.

1. It's a TV Movie, for crying out loud!

2. It IS NOT overacted.

3. You will recognize some incidents from the "Real Life" prototype that Williams plays.

Bet she HATES THIS!

It's NOT exaggerated

It is worth watching.
