Plot:

Calvin Carter, a successful business executive, has it all, but neglects those closest to him. On Christmas Eve, all that changes when the sign on his office building falls on him.

Review:

I enjoy the fact that Christmas movies like to do the whole repeat day trope. Somehow I’ve managed not to see this one before, even though it’s older. It had a pretty good cast, writing and story were a bit weak, but it was alright.

Slight religious overtones, there’s someone that might be an angel and a reference to God, but it’s not in your face so it didn’t bother me.

No sweet romance, which was a bit of a bummer, but it didn’t belong in the story, so it wasn’t really missed.

Man learns the true meaning of Christmas and that being a raging capitalist isn’t the be all, end all.

3/5
