Scrooged
Bill Murray and Karen Allen




Overview -
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.

Reviews:
"SCROOGED still more or less works. Credit Dickens, in part." -- Grade: B - 12/14/2011 A.V. Club


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." - 11/01/2012 Total Film


"[A] dark and now-classic reworking of the Dickens tale. Bill Murray is funny beyond words..." - 12/06/2012 Wall Street Journal
