Summary: Exceeded expectations, especially given the middling reviews and cheesy trailer. Solid Christmas flick, even though I watched it over the summer. It's hard to say what makes a movie good, but it works.
Summary: One of my all time favorite Christmas movies. A great retelling of a classic. Bill Murray at his best, and Carol Kane steals every scene she is in. My family watch's this every Christmas, and we laugh like we had just seen it for the first time.
Pros: Awesomely Funny, Christmas Classic, Engaging Characters, Entertaining, Original
Summary: This is a movie that is such fun, besides having a fine moral point to make, that we watch it every year around Christmas. Also, we have recommended it to many of our friends. We do caution that the depiction of the ghosts is probably not appropriate for small children as they could be frightening.
Summary: I love this movie ever since I was a kid. And when it was announced that the Blu-ray was in the works I got real excited. I have had the DVD for quite some time now so I knew I was ready for an HD copy. The picture was perfect and the sound was superb.
Pros: Engaging Characters, Entertaining, Great Cinematography, Informative, Original
Excerpt: Dickens' ubiquitous seasonal tale gets yet another re-telling in this amiably dated 80s comedy. Bill Murray stars as a tyrannical TV network president who goes through the usual learning the "true spirit of Christmas"motions via ghostly visitation.
Excerpt: Francis Xavier "Frank" Cross (Bill Murray) is an insensitive selfish executive of a network. Claire Phillips (Karen Allen) sees Frank again but never got along because of his career while he has a strained relationship with his brother James (John Murray).
Summary: Fun, tongue-in-cheek, twist on the familiar Dickens story. Bill Murray is fantastic and delivers some of the best lines of the film. Occasionally, the film dips into corny material, but what Christmas film doesn't?
Summary: Late 80s version of A Christmas Carol with Bill Murray as the President of a TV network. Not as good as some of Murray's other stuff but certainly some funny moments here & there. I'd also forgot how awful that Annie Lennox/Al Green song was.
