Theater II: Scrooged

Christmas movie month is coming to an end this week with a remake of Charles Dickens’ Christmas classic, Scrooged.   This modern day update to A Christmas Carol stars Bill Murray as Frank Cross, a big shot TV executive that does not have any holiday cheer in his life.  Frank takes his anger and frustrations out on everyone around him and treats most people like dirt until one faithful night when he has a reunion with his old boss’s reanimated zombie, Lew.  Lew tells Frank that there is still time to change his ways for the better and that he will be visited by three ghosts.  Frank is taken on a journey through the many different Christmases in his life by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.  This version of the tale has a much more comedy in it than the original but also takes a few dark turns.  Why is Claire’s business card so damn large?  What happens to Frank in the real world while he is traveling with the ghosts?  Where there any members of the Murray family that were not cast in this movie?  How could Eliot be able to return to work after his shooting rampage? Shouldn’t he be looking at some jail time?  We hope Santa brought you all the gifts you wanted and that you have a fun and safe New Year’s Eve.  Enjoy!
