Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Most critics couldn't get behind Bill Murray's modern retelling of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, finding it too unfocused at times and not nearly wicked enough. Still, if you are 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

Product Description

Scrooged, the hilarious spin on Dickens' classic novel, A Christmas Carol, is now available on high-definition.

Bill Murray is television executive Frank Cross, the meanest, most selfish man on Earth. He will stop at nothing to increase his network's ratings, even if it means that his staff works on Christmas Eve. It will take three spirits - the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future - to show Frank that he needs to change.

With an all-star cast including Karen Allen, John Forsythe, Carol Kane, Alfre Woodard and Robert Mitchum, and a memorable musical score from Danny Elfman, Scrooged will have your entire family rediscovering the true meaning of Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic Christmas movie 9 Nov 2008
By Paul
Format:DVD
I was horrified to see Scrooged on amazon with only a 3 star rating, so I clicked on the item to check out what the reviewers had said. Unfortunately the overall rating had been pulled down dramatically by the rather grumpy review by what appears to be a genuine real life scrooge. This film is great. Bill Murry plays the part of a modern day scrooge beautifully with his deadpan humour and classic role of progressive personality transformation. The film can't take much credit for the overall storyline, but compared to the many other rather boring and overdone rewrites of the classic, this one stands at the top for its clever adaption and extremely comical approach. At the end of the day it wasn't trying to do justice to the original story, but create a funny, feel good movie that comes with the brilliant undertones and moral principles that Dickens was trying to convey, in a modern day setting with a great cast and hillarious script. I watch this film every time its on TV at Christmas and it always puts you in a great mood and into the Christmas spirit. Scrooged is definately in there with the all time classic Christmas movies, love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Christmas viewing 16 Dec 2002
Format:DVD
I just can't fault Bill Murray in this film...
His interaction with all the other characters is top notch, whether he's being the meanie by firing Elliot Laudermilk (Bobcat Goldthwaite) on Christmas eve or getting 12 bells knocked out of him by the fairy-like Ghost of Christmas Present.
If you haven't seen this film, I suggest you get yourself a copy today, stick it on and sit through the whole thing eating that tin of Quality Street you'd bought for someone else but you know that the green triangles have been playing on your mind, haven't they?
Get into the Frank Xaviar Cross style of Christmas spirit!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Christmas Movie! 18 Oct 2003
Format:DVD
I watch this movie several times each year, starting about October time and finishing with a Christmas eve viewing! Its an excellent, entertaining, funny, emotional and heart-warming version of A Christmas Carol. The ending scene and end-title soundtrack never fail to bring a tear to the eye and a warm fuzzy feeling! Light those candles, pour the mulled wine and enjoy!

Ordered this as it is one of my favourites as a child. As it is a Region A release, I was apprehensive as to buy it or not but did a little research and found that it will work on Region B/2 (Europe and UK). This version has excellent audio and picture quality. I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves this film and its also a bargain price!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Murray in a Christmas Carol!!! 30 Dec 2008
Format:DVD
My favourite actor and my favourite book/film combined, i may be biased but this is one of the best alternative Christmas films ever!! Deadpan Murray makes a great Scrooge. It brings a tear to my eye when he finally sees the error of his ways.

4.0 out of 5 stars Put a little love in your heart. 26 Dec 2012
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is a perfect vehicle for Bill Murray, his brand of sarcastic and caustic delivery is nailed on perfect for Frank Cross, the modern day scrooge in this tale. I have often found him to be an acquired taste, I mean don't get me wrong here, I'm a big fan and can repeatedly watch his best offerings, but it's not hard to understand why his style is not universally loved. Scrooged is pure and simply the modern spin of the story we all have grown up with, that isn't to say that the film loses anything as regards Christmas spirit, because it doesn't, the message is still the same, and in this ever changing world of ours the core essence of the story is one the world should heed. This version is a blast, it's loud, it's brash, but boy is it damn funny, and I personally watch it every Christmas without fail. And yes, I watch it alongside the glorious Alistair Sim version, for although they are poles apart in class, they both entertain for very different reasons.

Joining Murray in this festive romp is the delightful Karen Allen, while luminaries such as former New York Dolls front man David Johansen and Mr. Laconic himself, Robert Mitchum, add some weight to the cast list. It all works really rather well with the exception of Carol Kane's Ghost Of Christmas Present, where to me she comes off as being more annoying than funny, but that of course is a personal opinion and I know as fact that many others adore her energetic performance. With quips aplenty and of course with a simple heartfelt message at the core, Scrooged is truly a sharp and enjoyable film to be enjoyed at the festive period.

Thanks boys, get the nurse! 8/10
