Audience Reviews for A Christmas Carol

There are bits of acting that I liked but some of it felt a little flat. There were only a few of the songs that were good and the others were all over the place.
Grammer was fine as Scrooge and he looked the part fine. It's a tough role for any actor since the roles has been done so many times that it has become stale in our minds. It's hard to bring something new to the table with a character that is so iconic.
This was fine for tv but there are other versions that are far better out there for you to see.

This movie is just decent. Musical versions of the story have been done better. Just watch Muppets Christmas Carol or the Albert Finney Scrooge. Kelsey Grammer just looks like...Kelsey Grammer with long hair. They didn't bother trying to make him look any older. Plus come on, Jason Alexander as Jacob Marley ?? He tries to be spooky but sorry he's still the worse Jacob Marley I ever seen.

Quite good. Old fashioned movie musical, reminded me of Oliver.
Grammer is excellent, and all the singing and dancing is very good. Nice tunes as well. The only slow section for me was during the Ghost of Christmas present played by Jesse L. Martin. One of the better versions of this story I've seen.
