Trivia

William Shatner appears as the ghost of Christmas present; when he "moves" Carol from one location to another, a Star Trek teleporter effect is used, in reference to Shatner's famous role as Captain Kirk in Star Trek: The Original Series (1966). See more »

Carol: You know, it would be a shame to have to go home and tell your family that you lost your job on Christmas Eve, wouldn't it?

User Reviews

I liked this movie
22 December 2003 | by diane-55See all my reviews

I especially loved seeing Jason Brooks in this film. I think he is a wonderful actor (miss him from Days and Baywatch Hawaii). He and Tori also did a movie called "Alibi" together in 1997.

Not really a big fan of Tori but she did a good job and the movie puts you in a good holiday frame of mind. I thought the blonde hair was a BIG improvement over the old RED.
