Conspiracy Theory (1997):

Bill Murray gets more than he bargained for when he catches a cab in New York City. The unscrupulous TV exec has made enough enemies during his selfish life. Cross will stoop to unheard of levels to increase his network’s ratings — even if it means mounting outrageous programs to retain an audience, such as “Robert Goulet’s Cajun Christmas” and Lee Majors in “The Night the Reindeer Died,” with an AK-47-toting Santa. This is a good movie that you can watch this Christmas.
