Christmas Countdown 2019, Day 25: Scrooged

Merry Christmas from us at Rabbithole Reviews! Were you lucky enough to get "Scrooged" (Richard Donner, 1987), starring Bill Murray, Karen Allen, Alfre Woodard, Carol Kane, and Bobcat Goldthwait? In this update to the Dickens classic, cynical television producer Frank Cross is planning a live broadcast of the show on Christmas eve. His long-suffering secretary, well-meaning brother, and a board of by-the-numbers ad guys are unable to convince him to take on the Christmas spirit. It's a series of ghosts, each one more intense than the last, who are tasked with getting him to see beyond his own past and mistakes and learn the true meaning of Christmas. Both lovingly true to the original text and refreshingly modern, this consumerist reboot is clever, sentimental, and classic, and our number one favorite Christmas movie!
