Scrooged

Scrooged staring Bill Murray has to be both one of Murray's funniest films, and one of the better takes on "A Christmas Carol." The portrayal of the Ghost of Christmas Present by Carol Kane is priceless.

Though if you insist on a more "traditional" treatment of Dickens' classic, then I suggest the Patrick Stewart version. I think this wins out over everything including the Alistair Sim version. Both of these are fairly faithful to the book and the Patrick Stewart version includes a great roll for Joel Grey as the Ghost of Christmas Past.

Happy Holidays folks.
