Murray’s Manic Spin on Dickens
Released in 1988 to cheers and jeers, Scrooged energized the Christmas Carol template with Bill Murray’s demented comic sensibilities. He plays heartless TV exec Frank Cross, whose live production of the Dickens tale sparks some ghostly visits.
Murray’s manic energy makes Frank’s journey from miserly to merry a wickedly fun ride. Imaginative special effects,splashy musical numbers, and an all-star cast including Karen Allen, Carol Kane, and Robert Mitchum add to the anarchic amusement.
While gleefully irreverent, the film retains the heartwarming message at the core of Dickens’ classic. Scrooged endures as a perennial favorite because its spirit is so delightfully derailed.
