Product Details


Product Description

Most critics couldn't get behind Bill Murray's modern retelling of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, finding it too unfocused at times and not nearly wicked enough. Still, if you're a Murray fan, you have to enjoy his deliciously nasty portrayal of the world's meanest TV executive, who has his cathartic moment one cold Christmas night in New York City. The various ghosts lead him on a ghost-town tour of Manhattan, with stops at holidays past, present, and future and a Kumbaya moment when Al Green and Annie Lennox sing "Put a Little Love in Your Heart." The effects are otherworldly, but one wishes the writing were as sharp as Murray's edgy portrayal. --Marshall Fine

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Christmas movie - bad any other time Dec 18 2003
By Meesha
Format:DVD
I watched this at Christmas, but if I'd watched it any other time, I definitely wouldn't have enjoyed it. Its just those certain movies you can't watch at certain times - like watching a romcom on Valentine's, not a good idea.
Unfortunately, I found this slow to start with. Too long an introduction to Frank Cross (Bill Murray) as the grumpy TV producer person. It really kicked off when the first of the three ghosts appeared - and I found myself reliving my childhood! I loved this book by Charles Dickens as a child, although I was a bad girl, and always skipped to the bit where the ghosts started appearing. I could have done with a skipper on this movie too.
The lovely Karen Allen appears as Frank Cross' ex-girlfriend. I had trouble placing her face, and had to ask - and got the response with a big sigh. I loved her in Starman, and she was great in this movie. The thing about Karen Allen is she has a really nice smile, and makes me want to smile too! I haven't seen her in enough films.
The big singsong was brilliant at the end, and was the highlight of the film for me. Keep watching the credits too, for an extra short bit of Bill Murray doing a little dance.
If you have or want this DVD, don't watch it until the run-up to Christmas. Definitely not one you can watch any other time - unlike A Mom For Christmas (Olivia Newton John, which I think was another TV movie!). I can watch that anytime, and still cry!

If you have seen every version of "Scrooge" and "A Christmas Carol" and are bored with it all, well here is a version that will have you laughing. "Scrooged" (1998) makes fun of all those old versions you have already seen. Bill Murray (NBC Saturday Night Live, 1977-1980) plays "Scrooge" and he is a tv network president who dislikes Christmas and the spirit of it. He will fire anyone that is good and has good sense. What is fun are the cameo appearances and the familar faces of actors we like to see. Lee Majors, Robert Goulet, Harry Shearer, Alfre Woodard, John Houseman, Buddy hackett, Jamie Farr, Mary Lou Retton, Bobcat Goldthwait, Robert Mitchum, John Glover, Brian Doyle Murray, David Sanborn, Paul Shaffer, Karen Allen, Rebeca Archerd, Michael J. Pollard, Logan Ramsey, Anne Ramsey and Mabel King. John Forsythe plays "Lew Hayward". David Johansen plays "Ghost of Christmas Past". Carol Kane plays "Ghost of Christmas Present".

4.0 out of 5 stars Bill Murray Gives Dickens A New Twist! Dec 11 2003
Format:DVD
In 1988 Director Richard Donner (Leathal Weapon, Timeline, Superman) to audiences into the world of Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol by brining it into the 80's.
Bill Murray (Osmosis Jones, Lost In Translation, Charlie's Angles) plays TV Executive Frank Cross the meanest, cruelest, most viscious person in the Entertainment industry in New York (Actually patterning himself after real TV Executives of the time.
He happens to be producing his Diabolical version of A Christmas Carol, with Violence, Sex and Amzing non-traditional Christmas Themes. This makes a series of events happens.
Because of this he is forced to see his life, Past, Present and Possible Future! On the way his old Exec Business Partner played by John Forsyth (Charlie's Angles, Dynasty) warns him he will be visited by three ghosts.
Past is played Brilliantly by David Johanson (Oz, Freejack) and takes the form of a New York Cabbie.
Present is played Hysterically by Carol Kane (My Blue HEaven, Joe Vs The Volcano) as the fairy with an incredible attitude.
The future is played by some use of Special Effects.
Other great casting is the amazing Alfrie Woodard (Star Trek First Contact, Radio, K-PAX) as the mother of a muted child that learns a valuable lesson.
Robert Mitchem (James Dean Story, Tombstone, North and South) plays Bill's boss with the sneaking incentive of replacing him with a new California TV Exec obnoxiously (in a good way) played by John Glover (Smallville, Tricks, Batman & Robin).He does have his love interest played by Karen Allen (Raiders Of The Lost Ark, The Perfect Storm, Malcom X) who teaches him the real meaning of love, life and Christmas. There is a character string played by Bobcat Goldthwait (Hercules, Little Vegas) who learns several valuabale lessons himself.

First off, I would like to correct the individual who referred to Groundhog Day as a 1983 film and used it as an exaple of Murray's first holiday-themed movie. Groundhog Day was actually made around 1993, I believe.
Anyway, the fun thing about this movie is that it is so dumb. But then again, it had to be in order to get our attention. After all, how many times can hollywood re-make Christmas Carol? Even as I write this, I feel that I will be misrepresenting my own opinions by saying so, but what I mean is that this is dumb in the sense that enjoyment of it does not necessitate brain use. It is fun for fun's sake, which even the elitist snobs of the world such as myself have to recognize as perfcetly legitimate. (And of course it has the traditional "love thy neighbor, give to the poor, God bless us, everyone" ending, which is not a total loss.)
My personal favorite touches are the golf balls and mice falling out of the back of the moth-eaten head of Jacob Marley's character - they changed the name in this movie but what they changed it to escapes me at the moment - as well as the wonderful performance on the part of David Johansen as the deliciously obnoxious cab driver/Ghost of Christmas Past who obviously fell out of the crazy tree and hit every branch en route to terra firma. In addition, fans of his singing will experience waves of nostalgia at the marvelous and familiar gravel that we refer to as his voice.

This is a good adaptation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol". It may be more of a suggestion than an adaptation. Read more
