Critic Reviews for The Man Who Invented Christmas
All Critics (3) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (1)
[Reveals] the equivalently satisfying story of how the English author conceived his beloved yuletide novella – while offering a chance for a splendidly cast Christopher Plummer to play Ebenezer Scrooge in the process.
[Offers] enough enjoyable Masterpiece Theater-style moments to entice Anglophiles and those who can never get enough of Ebenezer Scrooge.
As a portrait of an author on the verge of a breakthrough, this is a run-of-the-mill, occasionally clumsy biopic; as for contextualizing Christmas, it never explains how it functioned before Dickens and only briefly mentions how it changed after him.
