Scrooged

PG

High-spirited high jinks on Christmas Eve put Frank Cross (Bill Murray) in a ghostly time warp in this hilarious take-off of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." Cross, who has made the meteoric rise from the depths of the mailroom to TV network president, is mean, nasty, uncaring, unforgiving and has a sadistic sense of humor - perfect qualities for a modern-day Scrooge.

Before the night is over, he'll be visited by a maniacal New York cab driver from the past, a present-day fairy who's into pratfalls and, finally, a ghoulish seven-foot-headless messenger from the future.

The outrageous comic antics that were Murray's trademark in the 1980s combine with eye-popping special effects and the traditional heartwarming story, in a festive movie that will entertain children and adults alike.

Screening from a new digital print.

Whenever Bill Murray is in a film, there's always one simple rule. Give him a decent set-up and you've got yourself a classic.
