Goofs

While in the past, adult Kristin asks Jamie (18) to hack Maverick's account. Jamie makes a comment about running a keystroke program to recreate Maverick's password. Keystrokes are generally not recorded by any software or even the operating system unless it is specifically designed to do so. Keyloggers, as is eluded to, wouldn't be able to capture keystrokes from the past, only from the point that it is installed and activated. With an instant messenger, it's possible to have the password saved for future sign-ins, but using the feature would make it unnecessary to hack the account. See more »

Kristin Carol
10 December 2017 | by Jackbv123See all my reviews

A bit of a different take on A Christmas Carol. Kristin is a slutty, narcissistic, lush. She is also more or less failing at life. I found this personality difficult to get past, but some might see the humor and enjoy it. The different approach is that Kristin doesn't visit the past in ghost-like fashion, she actually goes to the past and interacts with herself and her family. For much of the movie, only her past self knows who she really is. It doesn't take the older Kristin long to realize she needs change.

The acting is enjoyable. I loved A.J. Langer as Aunt Debbie.

There might be a couple of ways it can go, but neither would be a big surprise. Even so, I thought it was worth staying with.
