Carrie Bishop (Lindy Booth) is a successful event planner in New York City, but her life changes in a few seconds when she is involved in a terrible car accident. Carrie is unconscious but when she wakes, she is beside an older man, Henry (Derek McGrath) at a park bench in Central Park. Henry is her spirit guide who is there to help her cross over to the other side. But first she must complete a final task before she can go. She is assigned to guide a single dad, Scott Walker (Paul McGillion) who has lost all hope because his business, a restaurant, is failing. Carrie becomes a guide and a guardian angel to them while they try to work out their problems. But Carrie doesn’t have much time. She has until midnight on Christmas Eve to save him and then her time is up.

Well, again, another poor person who is in a car accident at Christmas. This is a really dangerous time in Christmas movies. This new for 2011 film is a remake of a half dozen other films with the same story. The characters are not real great, and the story is kind of flat. The biggest thing it has going for it is that it’s new this year, so you haven’t seen it before, at least. It’s a standard TV Christmas story with little that is memorable. The little girl is probably the best actor in the film. The ending is really strange. There is a “twist” in the end that may make you feel like you’ve been ripped off big time. Just don’t kick the TV screen. Basically, this film is watchable, but barely. There’s so much better stuff this year, that I just can’t recommend this one.
