What to know

critics consensus

Scrooged gets by with Bill Murray and a dash of holiday spirit, although it's hampered by a markedly conflicted tone and an undercurrent of mean-spiritedness. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

In this modern take on Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," Frank Cross (Bill Murray) is a wildly successful television executive whose cold ambition and curmudgeonly nature has driven away the love of his life, Claire Phillips (Karen Allen). But after firing a staff member, Eliot Loudermilk (Bobcat Goldthwait), on Christmas Eve, Frank is visited by a series of ghosts who give him a chance to re-evaluate his actions and right the wrongs of his past.

    A very dark tale of the well known Scrooge tale that is full of dark humour, The film starts off well but gets abit too serious and weird but a good performance by Bill Murray just about gets us through the weird stuff, It's not for kids as some bits may scare them.

    Scrooged is a Christmas film without any spirit. Bill Murray is pretty bad and the film is an unfunny mess of mean-spirited humor. Not necessary for seasonal enjoyment. Rating: 44

    Yeah it's a mess but I've always found the movie's insanity appealing. It takes a lot of risks both narratively and visually which, given the mostly dismal state of current Holiday comedies, makes it more enduring every year.
