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.

A meaningful Christmas Carol this is not, but a perfectly entertaining yuletide comedy this certainly is.

Bill Murray is the one of the greatest screen Scrooges in this 1980s updating.

I found much of this irreverent modernization of A Christmas Carol to be hilarious, and I commend Murray and director Donner for giving their film a sardonic edge.

I saw this during a brief visit to Germany and it really helped things suck less. Possibly even funnier dubbed in incomprehensible German.

Proves that remakes and new visions of old material need not be redundant.

By the time it draws to a close, the movie and Cross demonstrate their faith and belief in goodness -- and do it hilariously and affectingly.
