Scrooged is, indeed, phenomenally loud, and also very mean, and somehow also ultimately heartening, in a loopy yuletide sort of way. Full Review
Despite the juicy, on-the-edge craziness, Murray is able to layer his outrageous histrionics with an inner sensibility, making his ultimate transformation not only believable but Christmas-cheer uplifting. Full Review
Still, Murray is magnificent in the film, the effects are better than you'd expect, and the 1988 version of Hollywood excess is almost quaint by comparison with the CGI purgatory we live in today. Full Review
The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
An appallingly unfunny comedy, and a vivid illustration of the fact that money can't buy you laughs. Full Review
SCROOGED still more or less works. Credit Dickens, in part. -- Grade: B
3 stars out of 5 -- Donner gets mileage from the strain of arch-cynicism Murray patented before his appointment as cinema's don of droll disappointment.
Rating: 3/5 -- It's a missed opportunity, but some gags still hit the mark and there's a stream of starry cameos... Full Review
A network TV president is perhaps the most cold-hearted man ever, but his holiday spirit is given a painful booster shot by three vengeful ghosts. In this darkly comic updating of Charles Dicken's Christmas classic A CHRISTMAS CAROL, Bill Murray portrays Frank Cross, an evil, crass, executive who caters to the lowest-of-the-lowest common denominators, firing people whenever he wants to and for the flimsiest of reasons. Therefore, to change his cruel and tasteless ways, Cross is taken on a trip through his past to his future, accompanied by ghosts David Johansen and Carol Kane, so that he can achieve redemption. From a screenplay by SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE's "Mr. Mike," Michael O'Donoghue. Academy Award Nominations: Best Makeup.
