Scrooge Movie Overview

Ebeneezer Scrooge (Alastair Sim) contentedly meanders through his life as a cruel miser until one fateful Christmas Eve when he is visited by three ghosts. The spirits show him how his behavior over the years has made him a lonely, bitter old man, and how his heart has grown colder. Using events from Scrooge's idealistic past, dreary present and dismal future, the apparitions try their best to melt his steely soul. Tightfisted Ebeneezer Scrooge learns the error of his ways through the intervention of the ghost of his former partner and of the three spirits and, just in time for the holidays, manages to make everyone's lives a little brighter, his included!

  • The notion of Albert Finney playing Ebenezer Scrooge is admittedly mind-boggling, and so is the idea of A Christmas Carol being turned into a musical. But "Scrooge" works very nicely on its intended level and the kids sitting near me seemed to be having a good time.

  • Scrooge is one of those films where you can sit down and let it wash all over you. Finney is the perfect Scrooge: despicable, mean, sarcastic and a lot better than others who have portrayed the miserly character. Scrooge's love and loss of Isabelle is touching as is Tiny Tim's song about his dream of Christmas.

  • Audience Reviews for Scrooge The story is five star but the songs are pedestrian and dull and drag the film down. The George C. Scott version is still the gold standard.

  • Critic Reviews for Scrooged. ... Of course he's not called Scrooge here, the whole film doesn't really mention or use any wording that refers to the old tale (well if you don't count the in-movie ...

  • For Scrooge is very much like us in the audience - merely an observer of the story. Especially Espen Monsrud as Scrooge's assistant, Bob Cratchit, delivers a truly genuine and moving performance.

  • This musical Scrooge is great for kids. Read Common Sense Media's Scrooge review, age rating, and parents guide.

  • Review: At the center of this musical adaptation of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol is Albert Finney, singing, dancing, and "Bah, humbug"-ing his way through the familiar title role. Guiding ...

  • "Scrooge and Marley" opens with a description of the changes to Ebeneezer Scrooge and the community's reaction to these changes. The first third of the book tells of the reappearance of Jacob Marley's ghost.

  • In Sim, Scrooge comes to his senses on Christmas Day and there is a warm and funny scene with Mrs. Dilber, the housekeeper. Not here. Here there is an extended scene of Scrooge and the prize turkey! Scrooge goes to the butcher shop which is closed, snow falls on Scrooge, Scrooge throws snow, snow hits butcher.

  • First to Review I'm all for the latest trend of sushi burritos; it's the perfect fusion of sushi rolls with the made-to-order style of burritos in restaurants like Chipotle and Illegal Pete's. Scrooge Maki is a recent, albeit small, storefront addition to The Hill next to the CU Boulder campus.
