Unlike the great musicals, where you might find yourself humming a tune a few days later, with Scrooge, you'll be lucky if you remember the name of one of the songs a few hours later.

Antagony & Ecstasy

[Finney is] the only element of this production that is really up to much good... the film lacks energy or dramatic thrust.

A misbegotten musical adaptation of Dickens' much too perennial tale.

Flick Filosopher

A roduction that suffers from its theatrical roots and its need to not only make its antihero see the error of his ways but go way overboard in making up for his past.

Scrooge works very nicely on its intended level and the kids sitting near me seemed to be having a good time.

Even Scrooge's fingernails are dirty, and while I don't think that Dickens intended to equate greed with unwashed hands, he probably would not have objected.

Although rather hammy at times, Finney holds the screen throughout.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Director Ronald Neame's well-paced film captures the period beautifully, and the acting is superb, with Finney and Alec Guinness, as Marley's ghost, real standouts.
