The film garnered a 73% score among audiences on Rotten Tomatoes. Joe Leydon of Variety wrote “Davis obviously aims to indicate a grand design to seemingly random events, and the presence of a higher power — probably God — capable of affecting human destinies.” He further noted, “the movie can serve as undemanding home-screen amusement to enjoy while wrapping Christmas presents.”
Jared Whitley of the Star Trek fan site Trek Movie gave the film “3 out of 4 lights,” noting that “Patrick Stewart fans will no doubt remember his iconic role as Ebeneezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol and will be happy to know that Stewart brings plenty of that regal Scrooge-ness to his role in Christmas Eve.” He further noted that all the characters “have the kind of amazing cathartic experiences that can only happen in movies when you’re trapped in elevator with strangers.”
