Audience Reviews for A Christmas Carol
Did you ever know a relative that lived through the Great Depression? One that only gave Savings Bonds or cards? If you were little when they did this, you were probably upset but, as you grew older, you realized they were trying to do good by you but were stuck in the mindset of the difficult era they lived through. Their penny pinching was not out greed is what I'm saying. Try as it might to convince me otherwise, this film's more Dickensian backstory for Scrooge evokes this more than the cruel miser of the novella and most of his other film counterparts. And that's the biggest problem with the film. Not the bad CGI, not the weird casting choices, but the fact that that Scrooge and even Marleycome off as too sympathetic. We should be able to sympathize with our main characters but not to the point where the change they go through feels almost unnecessary.
Yes, A Christmas Carol was made into a musical and yes, it was done well. Not perfect but the music was from Alan Menken which I love. Alan has written music for a lot of Disney films including the latest, Tangled. This Christmas Carol has songs you can sing to and Kesley Grammer plays a great Scrooge. It's worth a watch. www.what-to-watch.com
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.
