A very disappointing "Christmas Carol" movie
12 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

I found this at the library. I'm a huge fan of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol books. It has been adapted into movies, musicals, and dramas (mostly). But this childish Barbie film wants to be turned into a childish crap of comedy. The humor is rubbish, the drama is weak, the action is like there's no plot in the story. I know this is supposed to be a G-rated film and a special video to entertain children instead of scaring them, but there are some children's Christmas Carol movie adaptations that has Scrooge falling into his grave and stuff. This one doesn't.

It's about Barbie who tells a story to her younger Sister Kelly so the movie is literally a storybook kinda movie. Eden is a famous celebrity singer and all of a sudden, she turns Scrooge-like and tells her friends not to rehearse on Christmas day and says "Bah, Humbug." Then she tells Annie (or whatever her freaking name is) not to say "Christmas" at all. Now I don't remember Scrooge telling people not to say "Christmas" but she is a Scrooge I know.

One day she is visited by Marley that night. Marley is trying to act as the Ghost of Christmas Past and then the other ghost takes her on the adventure through swirly holes and everything. Nice idea, but that sounds like more fun if this was in the theater instead of a direct-to-video thing.

I'm telling you, please avoid this Barbie film. It's a shameful film of the classic Charles Dickens books.
