Scrooged 1988


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

Scrooged Movie Review by Movie Addict (6/18/2007)

I know what you are saying, "Another version of Charles Dickens!" But this one has Bill Murray and he is funny. Even if you have seen several versions of this classic, you have to see the one with Murray. It'll be the one you watch every year.
