Where to Begin?
24 November 2018 | by sprtsgySee all my reviews

I've watched a lot of Christmas movies. I love them. I love the classics. And I've come to enjoy the Hallmark movies. I've watched quite a few, and they range from OK too pretty good. But this one is a train wreck. It guts all the emotion out of the Dickens version of a Christmas Carol. The writing is him listed, and not worthy of its source material. The actors were in a losing proposition. There was not much they could do with this terrible script. So watch some of the other heartwarming movies this Christmas, but don't waste your time on this one.
