It’s “A Christmas Carol” riff for those who already know the story, and entirely too on-the-nose for its own good.

It’s a pleasant Christmas-season offering; both mild (read: family-friendly) and sweet.

The Man Who Invented Christmas is a jaunty, amusing patchwork of truths, half-truths and pure fiction that cleverly combine to recount the story of the whirlwind creation of Charles Dickens' famed novella A Christmas Carol.
