5.0 out of 5 stars A classic Christmas movie, 9 Nov. 2008
By 
This review is from: Scrooged [DVD] (1988) (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!

So because you liked it, anyone who didn't is automatically 'grumpy'?! It's people like you that should be staying away from reviewing, not them.

I wouldn't say anyone who didn't like the film was 'grumpy'. But I would say that someone who didn't find anything good to say about the film to put in a supposedly holistic review ie acting, music, story -might be unjustly dissmissing the film and dramatically lowering its ratings (at the time). I used the term grumpy as a joke reference instead of 'narrow mindedness'. You are right though - its important to accept everybodies opinion and I apologise if I offended you.
