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 »

Bland & Boring
17 December 2007 | by youngsteveSee all my reviews

Although this didn't look much, I thought I would give it a try, as it had a Christmas theme, & based on the Christmas Carol. It also was fairly praised up by comments on here. Unfortunately, I have just spent 80+ minutes of my life watching a completely unfunny, badly acted, load of rubbish, & warn others to keep well away.

Tom Arnold seems to have fallen a long way & got a lot thinner since his Roseanne days. Andrea Roth is supposed to be Christmas Present who is character falls for as she is so good looking & witty, whilst in reality is a complete bore. Worst though was a little midget masquerading as Christmas Past, who the plot evolves around, & seems to have a severe mental deficiency, whilst the rest of the cast sleepwalks to another TV movie.
