Editorial Reviews

Elizabeth "Ebbie" Scrooge (Susan Lucci) is the tyrannical owner of Dobson's department store. She takes her career very seriously and cares little about those around her, firing employees, denying charity and breaking tradition to turn a profit. When Ebbie is visited by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, she realizes that she knows the price of everything...but the value of nothing. As she gets a glimpse at the bridges she's burned and the love she's lost, Ebbie hopes for a fresh start. Will she get another chance to live a more generous life?

Bonus CD

I, like many others from the looks of the reviews here, am simply ecstatic that 'Ebbie' has FINALLY been released on DVD!!!! I remember the first time I saw this movie and I absolutely loved it. I should preface the statement by saying that I am a major fan of 'A Christmas Carol' and this version was simply perfect. Of course, it is quite different from the original in that Ebeneezer Scrooge is a Mrs. as opposed to a Mr., but do NOT let this stop you from watching this heartwarming version. I figured for sure over the years that this would be released on DVD and have been so disappointed every single year until now! I can finally erase the version I have on my DVR with its outdated commercials and enjoy it in the version I have been crossing my fingers for! If this isn't an early 'Merry Christmas' then I do not know what it is, lol!!

I just got done watching it. This is the one! There were no changes. The music is the same - even the love theme is there. It's just as good as I remember.

It's a great version of A Christmas Carol, in case you've never seen it. Susan Lucci plays Ebbie, and she carries the film. All the other roles are perfectly cast. Not much corn, in my opinion, just sweetness. Let the kids watch.

My mom has asked me to search for this movie each year for the past 3 years. I was so excited to find it, but then I read the review saying the company who released it would do a bad job. Since it was fairly inexpensive, I decided to take a chance and surprise her with it. I warned her just in case there was an issue. She has already watched it and said it is wonderful. She said the picture and sound are great. She was so pleased. She hasn't had a chance to listen to the CD, but liked the song list. If you have been looking for Ebbie, you will be pleased!

Just received this DVD today and the movie is in high quality (as opposed to what a previous review claimed). Sure, there are no extras or commentary and only a basic chapter search, but I couldn't care less. My main goal was to own a quality version of "EBBIE" on DVD, so I am very pleased. Besides, any facts you'd want to know about this movie are available online.
Also, the CD of Christmas Music puts you in the spirit even more. I only wish they had Carol of the Bells, which is my favorite, but it's still a nice listen.
Finally, just want to state I think this is the best female version of SCROOGE I've ever seen. The story is very heartwarming without any sugar-coating. I especially admire Lorena Gale's performance as the Ghost of Christmas "Present".
If Charles Dickens were still alive, I'm sure he would greatly approve of this version of his widely beloved humanitarian tale.

i saw this movie years ago when it was first shown on Lifetime and enjoyed it immensely. Nice to see that my memories of it as a terrific Christmas story are still valid and Susan Lucci did a great job as (as far as I know) the first female Scrooge. Lovely to finally have this on DVD and the bonus Christmas cd is a nice holiday extra. It's definitely worth the great price.

I saw this movie when it first came on tv and looked for it but never could find it. I was so glad when amazon finally offered it. I read the reviews and was worried the movie wouldn't be the original movie so was really happy when I saw it was the same movie. You can't go wrong with this movie. By all means buy this movie it is a christmas classic.
