Product Description

JACK IS BITTERLY DIVORCED & HATES SANTA & ANYONE WHO LOVES CHRISTMAS. JACK GETS A WAKE-UP CALL FROM THE GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST, WHO SUDDENLY DECIDES TO TAKE A VACATION EAVING JACK IN THE PAST. NOW JACK MUST TEAM UP WITH THE GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PRESENT TO SAVE THE FUTURE OF CHRISTMAS.

Amazon.com

A clever twist on the classic story A Christmas Carol, Chasing Christmas finds its Scrooge in the bitter Jack Cameron (Tom Arnold, Happy Endings), whose wife cheated on him during their daughter's performance in a Christmas pageant and now he does mean things like throw Christmas decorations in the street. Naturally, he becomes the target for the Bureau of Yuletide affairs, who send the Ghost of Christmas Past (Leslie Jordan, Will & Grace) to take Cameron on a tour of his previous holidays. But when the ghost has a personal meltdown and abandons Cameron in 1965, the lovely Ghost of Christmas Present (Andrea Roth, Rescue Me) has to rescue the sourpuss--only to find that romantic sparks arise twixt ghost and man. Chasing Christmas won't win any awards, but it's a modest, enjoyable movie with a theme everyone can agree on: Life must be embraced to be fully lived. Tom Arnold isn't the most charismatic actor, but he has his talents; Roth and Brittney Wilson (Dinosapien) as Cameron's daughter are charming; and the story clips along at a sprightly pace. --Bret Fetzer

I own every version of Dicken's Christmas Carol that I can find, and they all have their good points. In "Chasing Christmas" the "scrooge" character is about as unlikeable as any I've seen, because this one is the dad of a beautiful teenage girl who longs for a normal Christmas. Her dad, who is embittered about Christmas because he caught his wife cheating on him on a Christmas Eve 7 years ago, hates everything about Christmas. Of course there are the usual Ghosts of Christmas, but in a unique twist, the Ghost of Christmas Past is also embittered at the world he sees now, and wishes to live in the past himself. Scrooge and Christmas Present embark on a funny and touching race to find "Past" before midnight, when everyone will be stuck in the past forever.
Not the greatest version of the classic, but a fun and likeable one.

There are several versions of "A Christmas Carol", and even if this may not be called that the story is basicly the same. Tom Arnold hates Christmas because his ex-wife cheated on him with his dentist on Christmas Eve. When he finally becomes enlightened by things he has no control over with the visits of Christmas spirits, it begins to sink into his head that he doesn't have it so bad. A reasonably decent romantic comedy for the holidays. Recommend you rent it first unless you are a huge Arnold fan.

This one was another surprising movie. It was the same old plot that we have seen over and over and over but done in a completely different way. Another good movie to veg out and enjoy the season. I heard someone on TV just yesterday say that Tom Arnold without Rosie was enough to turn them off from watching anything. I think it's just the opposite; I wouldn't watch Rosie but he's not so bad away from her. I was surprised at the Christmas movie I saw him in, two years ago, I think. He wasn't bad and he still isn't. He's not afraid to laugh at himself and we liked this new twist of the plot and the actors. You would never expect Christmas past to be as he was in this movie but we've watched this one twice and will probably watch it again before the season is over.

This is one of those "typical" Christmas movies. It is a fine movie, I love Andrea Roth's movies, it just isn't spectacular. Tom Arnold does a good job, as does Andrea Roth and Leslie Jordan. There just isn't anything particularly special about it. I'm glad to have it in my collection.

A takeoff on the classic Dickens story. It seems that there is a department of ghosts whose job it is to "unScrooge" people who don't like Christmas. The Ghost of Christmas Past decides he is tired of it all and skips out leaving the subject (played by Tom Arnold) and the other two ghosts to have to chase him through the past in order to convince him to come back.

If you like funny movies.. this is definitely a great one. I would call it a sleeper movie which is one that you didn't hear much about but when you did see it on tv, it was wonderfully funny. Lesley Jordan steals the show. Great product, price and service. Thanks.

This movie was so bad that I just can't believe it.
I watched this entire movie all the way through to the very end (where they played Bloopers which were not at all funny) and I kept asking myself why I was still watching and why I had not turned it off yet, and all that I could answer myself was that I was hoping that it would get better. It just kept getting worse.

The idea of this movie was really good, but the writers didn't know how to use it, they could have done so many creative things with this movie, but they didn't know how to write a script. There have been so many remakes of "A Christmas Carol," and the writers obviously tried to be unique about it, but they didn't know how. The "Back to the Future" copying got boring really quickly, it was just too much and just not interesting enough.

The only thing that I thought was good about this movie was that the Christmas Past actor did a really good job with the terrible lines that they gave him, I really don't think that anyone could have done any better with what he had to work with, he really tried to hold the movie together.

But the Christmas Present actress just looked like she was trying too hard, I think that she was totally miscast, I would have loved Molly Shannon for this part.

I like Tom Arnold, I think that he is a good actor, but he just was not funny at all in this movie, but I can't blame him for the pathetic lines that he had to suffer through.

When they traveled to 1965, the writers looked like they didn't know what to write, so they just gave up. The movie had a lot of potential up until that point, and after that 1965 scene was dropped, the rest of the movie just fell apart.
