Rating: 5/5 -- Murray, it's clear today, was the perfect Scrooge of the '80s. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- Tacky in the extreme, this self-congratulatory 1988 film is an exercise in hypocrisy, indulging every form of Christmas exploitation that it pretends to attack, and many of the laughs are forced.

Rating: 3/4 -- On balance... Bill Murray's lazy humor carries the movie up until his genuinely sweet relationship with an old girlfriend. Full Review

SCROOGED still more or less works. Credit Dickens, in part. -- Grade: B

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

[A] dark and now-classic reworking of the Dickens tale. Bill Murray is funny beyond words...
Wall Street Journal
Dec 6, 2012
It's not a bad notion for a satiric comedy and this one begins well, but then veers entirely out of hand until it's as over-inflated as its own Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come and as funny as a mugging. Full Review

Product Description:

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.
