    This is my favorite Christmas movie! I have to watch it every December, usually on Christmas Eve or close to it. It has humor, pathos, and a very good re-enactment of the Christmas Carol by one actor. Every person in the film is perfectly cast, and there isn\'t anything about it that doesn\'t ring true. In these days of polarization between the \"haves\" and the \"have-nots\", this movie is a reminder that things haven\'t changed at all. Watch it and feel good about your holidays!
