Rating: 5/5 -- Murray, it's clear today, was the perfect Scrooge of the '80s. Full Review
Rowdy stuff for the light in head. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- It's a missed opportunity, but some gags still hit the mark and there's a stream of starry cameos... Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- On balance... Bill Murray's lazy humor carries the movie up until his genuinely sweet relationship with an old girlfriend. Full Review
3 stars out of 5 -- Donner gets mileage from the strain of arch-cynicism Murray patented before his appointment as cinema's don of droll disappointment.
SCROOGED still more or less works. Credit Dickens, in part. -- Grade: B
[A] dark and now-classic reworking of the Dickens tale. Bill Murray is funny beyond words...
Wall Street Journal
A network TV president is perhaps the most cold-hearted man ever, but his holiday spirit is given a painful booster shot by three vengeful ghosts. In this darkly comic updating of Charles Dicken's Christmas classic A CHRISTMAS CAROL, Bill Murray portrays Frank Cross, an evil, crass, executive who caters to the lowest-of-the-lowest common denominators, firing people whenever he wants to and for the flimsiest of reasons. Therefore, to change his cruel and tasteless ways, Cross is taken on a trip through his past to his future, accompanied by ghosts David Johansen and Carol Kane, so that he can achieve redemption. From a screenplay by SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE's "Mr. Mike," Michael O'Donoghue. Academy Award Nominations: Best Makeup.
