Murray, it's clear today, was the perfect Scrooge of the '80s.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
April 7, 2015
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.

It's got Bill Murray, and that's always a good thing.

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.
November 27, 2007
Tacky in the extreme, this self-congratulatory 1988 film is an exercise in hypocrisy, indulging every form of Christmas exploitation that it pretends to attack, and many of the laughs are forced.

A number of talented actors appear, but only a few are able to make much of a mark given their limited screentime.

November 27, 2007
An appallingly unfunny comedy, and a vivid illustration of the fact that money can't buy you laughs.
August 12, 2006
Frequently funny take on Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" with Murray learning a lesson.

Rowdy stuff for the light in head.

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.

Necessary viewing during the holidays.

May 21, 2004
The smart-aleck comedy keeps the holiday cheer from getting too sugary.
| Original Score: 4/5
April 30, 2004
Forgetable holiday offering with Murray at his least inspired.
| Original Score: 2/5
December 7, 2003
Proves that remakes and new visions of old material need not be redundant.
May 20, 2003
In spite of the jokes at the expense of television-network censors, there's very little in the film, aside from naughty words, that wouldn't be perfectly acceptable on prime-time television.

So-so variant on A Christmas Carol as a Bill Murray vehicle,
| Original Score: 3/5
March 18, 2003
Made in the crappy Murray years between CADDYSHACK and RUSHMORE. A few laughs, but mostly forgettable.
| Original Score: 2/5
