(2022) (Will Ferrell, Ryan Reynolds) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy/Musical: The ghost of Christmas present may have met his match when he tries to reform a man who's been labeled as irredeemable.
Having been dead for the past two centuries, a ghost known as Present (WILL FERRELL), has served the past forty-six seasons as the Ghost of Christmas Present. He and his team -- including fellow ghosts Past (SUNITA MANI) and Yet-To-Come (LOREN WOODS, voiced by TRACY MORGAN), their big boss, Marley (PATRICK PAGE), and their large support staff, annually pick one person to put through the Christmas Carol treatment and spend all year doing their research and building their props and simulations to make them have a change of heart.
This year, Present wants to tackle a subject who's been noted as being irredeemable. That would be Clint Briggs (RYAN REYNOLDS), the leader of a media consulting company that's excellent at using conflict and misinformation for the benefit of their clients, with Clint's assistant, Kimberly Parker (OCTAVIA SPENCER), being an expert at digging up dirt on those they've targeted.
But Clint ends up as anything but an easy target for the ghosts. After that man sleeps with Past, Present takes over, but may have met his match as Clint turns the tables on him and his plan.
