Carol is a talk show host who is obsessed with herself and hates anyone who gets in her way, Carol’s bad attitude affects her family and co workers at Christmas time and it isn’t long before she gets a visit from the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, two of these ghosts are played by the late Gary Coleman and everyone’s favorite Star Trek actor William Shatner.
In case you haven’t figured it out yet this is just another version of a Christmas Carol but with a modern day twist.
There really isn’t too much to say about this movie, you’ve seen it all before its just Scrooge which is a concept that I think has been put into film far too many times for it’s own good, don’t get me wrong some versions of a Christmas Carol are excellent (Mickeys Once Upon a Christmas, Scrooged).
This is not by any means a bad film, its just the same old thing we see every year, there are a few things I really like about this version of a Christmas Carol that I find really help it stand out among the others.
The biggest difference is that the antagonist is a woman and I like this its good to see that it’s not just males who are lacking the Christmas Spirit, I also enjoyed the celebrity cameo’s I thought they were well cast and added a good amount of charm to the film.
What I didn’t like was the jokes, a lot of the time they felt forced and not necessary I don’t know why they tried to make this a comedy in the first place, originally due to the title I thought this would have been a parody of a Christmas Carol and I think that would have been great, it would have been a new and fresh idea that could of been really funny if it had good writing.
A Carol Christmas is not the worst version of a Christmas Carol I have ever seen but it’s definitely not the best either.
with 11 out of 12 reviews finished I think it’s time to see what the last Christmas movie review of 2015 will be.
