Trivia

During the bar fight scene in the bar the bar tender calls his room mate Curtis and says, "Hey Curtis! It's Joey. Your room mate Joey... You know that new sound you were looking for? Well listen to this." He holds the phone out to pick up the sound of an LP being scratched back and forth. This is an homage to the 1985 film "Back to the Future" when Marty Mayfly is improvising on stage with a guitar and a back stage worker, Marvin Barry, calls his cousin Chuck Barry and says the same thing, "...You know that new sound you've been looking for? Well listen to this." He holds the phone out toward the stage to pick up Marty's guitar playing. See more »

Delightfully pleasant
12 December 2006 | by jackburtoSee all my reviews

I like this twist offered on the take of "The Christmas Carol". It is a refreshing change from the normal Christmas movie. It was touching, funny, and sentimental. It offers you a message of the importance of family without the usual archaic bore. Despite how Tom Arnold became to be known, he still delivers a believable performance. Leslie Jordan gives an outstanding performance. Andrea Roth was just adorable. The cast is above average in their roles. If you want the standard old stuff usually offered up for Christmas movies, then this is not the film for you. If you want something different and unexpected, then you can't miss.
