Three Wise Women (2010) Rated NR

Three wise womenA doctor, set to marry on Christmas Eve, gets help from her younger and older selves to discover who she truly is. Starring Fionnula Flanagan, John Rhys-Davies, Hugh O’Conor, Lauren Coe, Amy Huberman, Brendan Patricks.

This film is inspired by Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The story doesn’t begin to compare, though, and the acting was spotty, at best. Flanagan and Rhys-Davies were the best actors in this film, and Coe was adequate as the young doctor. It bugged me that the actresses playing the doctor did not resemble each other at all.  I probably could have overlooked it if the acting itself was excellent, but it wasn’t.

As a story, the movie is an interesting take on A Christmas Carol. I thought the jokes fell flat (maybe it’s just a matter of having a different sense of humor).  Also, the movie failed to explain the reasoning for what the characters could and couldn’t do, which makes things confusing and disrupts the continuity of the film.  As I said, it is interesting, but not enough for me to recommend it.  This is a pass for me.
