Purchased this years ago when it first came out and when out kids were smaller, and turned it off after about 10 minutes. I figured since it was Disney, this would be 'light' viewing and comical: boy, was I wrong. It's actually pretty intense and according to some, closer to how Dickens had intended the story to be told.
Recently, we decided to try watching this again and....we really enjoyed it. The film was shot in motion-capture suits and visually comes across similar to Polar Express...part animation, part live. Jim Carey gives a great performance without being over-the-top as he can be in some of his films. Highly recommend this film to those who want a more 'grown up' version of this Classic Dickens tale.
