This progressive, uproarious retelling of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is arguably one of the best Christmas movies of all time. Only downside, to show how much Christmas is being exploited they kind of had to exploit Christmas. Awkward.
Bill Murray is hysterical, hilarious perfection as Frank Cross/Scrooge, a ruthless, jaded TV programming exec who has lost the most valuable things on his way to the top: love, family, and joy.
As he struggles to produce a-wacked-out-makes-no-sense-at-all-conmercialized live version of A Christmas Carol, his life imitates art and he’s visited by his decaying mentor and 3 ghosts with issues, a guy who’s gunning for his job and a guy gunning for him.
It’s a wild ride until Murray sees the error of his ways and Puts A Little Love in His Heart. Come on, it’s Bill Murray and Christmas…

This is one of my all time favorite Christmas movies, and Annie Lennox and Al Greene make me smile and sing along every time!

Its one of my wife’s favourite Christmas moves, which I’d not seen until we watched it not long ago,and I’m now converted!
This is my second fav telling of A Christmas Carol – after the Muppet version. I love Bill Murray in it.
I think my whole household can recite the entire movie, great review!
