Another adaption of A Christmas Carol? Bah Humbug!
Well, yes and now. Scrooged is technically a retelling of Dickens’ classic tale but it’s the most unique and gritty of all. Scrooged stars Bill Murray as a nihilistic President of a TV network, who is making a live version of A Christmas Carol. He’s a deplorable human being, forcing his staff to work on Christmas Day, as well as denying them their bonuses. Hours before the show however, Murray is visited by the three ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. The story is a darker twist on the original tale but one that will appeal to those with a good sense of humour and an open-mind. Plus, Bill Murray.
