Kudos to Bleecker Street, distributors of The Man Who Invented Christmas, who came up with a brilliant response to bad reviews of the film (not that they've had many to worry about!):
"The indie distribution company has been sending coal to the critics who gave the movie a bad review. In keeping with the spirit of Christmas, Bleecker Street has also been making a donation to the Bowery Mission homeless shelter for every piece of coal that gets sent out."
Charles Dickens himself couldn't have done it better.
