Deceased publishing exec Carrie Fisher has one night to show her callous and money-obsessed successor (Emmanuelle Vaugier) the error of her ways in yet another take on A Christmas Carol. Caustic wit is the ghostly guide's main method of persuasion, as she leads the "Stalin in stilettos" on the usual life-changing, festive journey through her past, present and future. Knowing gags - including a fan-pleasing Star Wars quip - make the most of Fisher's enjoyably dry delivery, while diverting attention from both the predictability of events and the frequent plot holes. This being a TV movie, there's also a good dollop of schmaltz: hammering home simplistic messages about following your heart which Vaugier's character naturally but abruptly embraces in the unconvincing final act.

Plot Summary

Seasonal fantasy starring Emmanuelle Vaugier and Carrie Fisher. On Christmas Eve, heartless executive Carol Huffman is visited by the ghost of her former boss who shows her the error of her ways and teaches her the true meaning of Christmas.
