The story of driven, heartless, publishing executive Carol Huffman, who on Christmas Eve is visited by the ghost of her former boss, Eve. Eve tells Carol that she has lost sight of the things that are truly important in life and that she is there to show her the errors of her ways. Eve explains that normally there would be three ghosts for the job, but due to budget cutbacks, she is in charge of Carol's journey through her past, present and future.Written by
As Eve (Carrie Fisher) is walking Carol through the bookstore in one of past memories, you can plainly see a "Star Wars" book. This is of course a reference to the movie that made Carrie Fisher famous as she played "Princess Leia" in the first Star Wars trilogy. See more »

Spirits have been coming down here to help people for generations. Chuck was just the first person to write it down.
Did you just say Chuck? As in Dickens?
You know what, nice guy, obviously a fantastic writer, but he had a tendency to exaggerate things. Like 3 ghosts instead of 1, or a turkey instead of a slab of mutton.

Yet another Made-for-TV movie from the Hallmark Channel and this one is 2012's take on A Christmas Carol. Carrie Fisher has the role as all three ghosts showing Emmanuelle Vaugier her life in three different ways. I knew I'd seen her somewhere before -- ah yes, Mia in Two and a Half Men and she was also in many eps of CSI: NY.
One scene in particular was kind of interesting when in a library, a Star Wars book was seen on a nearby shelf in the background. There was also a Star Wars mention. Those were kind of the highlights, it's sad to say. Other than that this tele-film lacks charm. Many versions of a Christmas Carol do... not very Christmasy. Ah well. Still, for some twisted reason, I'd actually maybe watch it again someday.
5.4 / 10 stars
