Scrooged Movie Review 1988

Information and Film Reviews for Scrooged the Movie

Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Somewhat disjointed big-budgeted version of the hallowed classic. A callous TV executive staging "A Christmas Carol" is himself visited by the three ghosts and sees the light. Kane is terrific as one of the ghosts. Film is heavy-handed, Murray too sardonic to be believable.
