Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average The way it has been presented, with forced and artificial junctions, keeps the viewer at arms-length from the story and creates questions about the historicity of some scenes.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...we will have to make do with his appearance here, which stands out like a delightful sugar plum in the middle of an otherwise stale cake.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 34 moviegoers:
Overall, these are GREAT REVIEWS! Most everyone indicated that they either loved "The Man Who Invented Christmas" or they enjoyed it very much, rating it "above average." Just a few rated it as low as "average," which isn't a bad review, it's just a little on the low side.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
After a string of successful novels, world-renowned writer Dickens (Dan Stevens) has had three flops in a row. With the needs of his burgeoning family and his own extravagance rapidly emptying his pockets, Dickens grows desperate for another bestseller. Tormented by writer's block and at odds with his publishers, he grasps at an idea for a surefire hit, a Christmas story he hopes will capture the imagination of his fans and solve his financial problems. But with only six weeks to write and publish the book before the holiday, and without the support of his publishers - who question why anyone would ever read a book about Christmas - he will have to work feverishly to meet his deadline.

Dickens locks himself away to write, but his chaotic household, which now includes his profligate father (Tony winner Jonathan Pryce), is a constant distraction. Working late into the night, the writer channels his own memories to conjure up the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come, and place them on a collision course with the misanthropic miser Ebenezer Scrooge (Oscar winner Christopher Plummer).
