Even though Christmas is over this movie is excellent for any time of the year. The musical comedy stars Vanessa Williams as Ebony Scrooge, a pop singer who hates Christmas and people, (except her manager Bob Cratchett.) Chilli is excellent as Marli Jacobs, a former back-up singer and friend of Ebony's. On Christmas Eve Marli shows up (as a ghost and warns Ebony that she will be haunted by 3 spirits who will save her soul. As the 3 ghosts Kathy Griffin, John Taylor, and VH1's Behind the Music are funny, zany, and serious. Bottom Line: Rent it, (yule like it,) buy it!
Vanessa Williams is excellent in the role of as a diva who has stomped her way to the top by backstabbing back-up singers, being cruel to her manager, and cheap with her roadies. Then comes Christmas Eve and she gets a much needed wake up call. Mariah Carey and Diana Ross beware...
I love this movie! Vanessa Williams shines as Ebony Scrooge, a miserly, spoiled rotten singer who, over the course of many years has forgotten the meaning of Christmas. On Christmas Eve, she is visited by 3 unique spirits made up of John Taylor (Duran Duran), Kathy Griffin (she was hysterical in this movie and the Ghost of Christmas Past), and a unique, and entertaining version of the Ghost of Christmas yet to Come (ingenious). This movie is a must have for any time of the year!
This is a must have for any Vanessa Williams/Christmas fan! It's funny, sad, and entertaining. The characters are wonderful, and the film is truly entertaining and it shows the true meaning of Christmas.
I absolutely love this movie! It's funny, sad, warm, and it just makes you feel good! There are some great one-liners that are truly memorable. Vanessa is a gem!! A must have for any Vanessa Williams/Christmas fan!
