William Shatner appears as the ghost of Christmas present; when he "moves" Carol from one location to another, a Star Trek teleporter effect is used, in reference to Shatner's famous role as Captain Kirk in Star Trek (1966). See more »
You know, it would be a shame to have to go home and tell your family that you lost your job on Christmas Eve, wouldn't it?

The whole plot..a updated version of Christmas Carol in which the Scrooge character is someone in the media intent upon exploitating the Holiday for business purposes,and gets their comeuppances...was already done,and done much better in Scrooged with Bill Murray. Tori Spelling is not very good as the Carol of the title. Spelling has actually done some good work in a few Indie films,she is not without talent....but every time she gets some cred from her work in small indie films she throws it away on garbage like this. The whole Bill Shanter/Star Trek bit was about as funny as a funeral. Attempts to modernize the Dickens classic are a dime a dozen,and this is one of the weaker efforts. All in all,a waste of time.
