The story seemed written by different people and not cohesive. Some being better written. It was so far off the traditional versions as to be offensive. Had it been better written so it flowed more seamlessly I might have been tempted to give it 1 1/2 stars.
The story begins in December, 1844, approximately one year after Ebenezer Scrooge entertained the ghosts of Jacob Marley and the Christmases Past, Present, and Future. Then, when he goes outside to go Christmas shopping, he miraculously finds himself in the fictitious city of New Britain, Wisconsin. (Fort Atkinson apparently plays the "role" of this city. I was able to determine this by Googling the name of one of the businesses whose name appeared on a window.)
Adjusting to simple things, such as squeezable ketchup bottles, Mr. Scrooge soon discovers that it's 2013, approximately 170 years after he went out shopping in London. He also soon discovers that a descendant of Tiny Tim has inherited his business, and is as miserly as he (Scrooge) was, in November, 1843. He's about to foreclose on the Dinner Belle dining establishment, owned and operated by a young blonde woman named Belle, who is a charitable woman, a lot like the Belle with whom Scrooge fell in love in his younger days.
I'm docking this film One Star for having a Subtitles link which doesn't work. You can put the cursor on the word Subtitles, and hit Enter; you can put the cursor on the word Off, next to the word Subtitles, and press Enter, but you can't get any subtitles to appear.
I'm also docking this film another Star for shamelessly pandering to Hispanics. Belle's employee is a brunette woman with a thick accent and an attitude problem who often lapses into speaking Spanish. Scrooge cheerily greets one of Timothy Cratchit VI's Hispanic employees in Spanish, in Wisconsin, in 2013. According to the census of the year 2000, less than five percent of Fort Atkinson's population was Hispanic. Incorporating Hispanics and Spanish into this film in such an affirmative way is obviously a ploy to market this film to Hispanics and liberals who don't think we can have enough Hispanics in the U.S., or pander to them sufficiently.
