Editorial Reviews

Scrooge & Marley is a modern day variation on Charles Dickens’ classic story of the holidays, “A Christmas Carol.” This is the DVD version of the movie, which also has a soundtrack and a Blu-ray edition.

On Christmas Eve, Ben Scrooge, the man who hates the holidays, is given the chance to begin again when he is visited by three spirits – the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Revisiting the tragic missteps of his life enables Scrooge to rediscover the joy of the holiday season and make a journey back to love. Recounted from a gay sensibility with heart, comedy and music, the magic of Dickens’ timeless tale comes alive from a fresh perspective that will appeal to audiences of all persuasions.


Acclaimed out actor David Pevsner portrays Ben Scrooge while former Saturday Night Live star Tim Kazurinsky appears as the Ghost of Jacob Marley. The film also stars Rusty Schwimmer, Bruce Vilanch, Megan Cavanagh, Ronnie Kroell, David Moretti, Richard Ganoung, and JoJo Baby. It is narrated by Tony award-winning actress Judith Light. The stars at the gala opening include Pevsner, Schwimmer, Vilanch, Cavanagh, Kroell, Moretti and Ganoung.

“Scrooge & Marley” was shot in Chicago and also highlights a host of recognized theatrical actors who round out the cast: Drew Anderson, Christopher Allen, Nicholas Bailey, Allison Torem, Fawzia Mirza, Peter Mohawk, Becca Kaufman, Scott Duff, PJ Powers, Amy Matheny and many more.

Scrooge & Marley features a wide range of music from award-winning singers and bands, with a special end credit song performed by Jason Gould and written for the film by Marsha Malamet, Liz Vidal and Stephan Oberhoff. Other performers in the film and soundtrack include Matt Alber, BETTY, Linda Good, Amber deLaurentis, Becca Kaufman, Jeannie Tanner and more.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This gay and updated version of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol could become a cult classic. But it also has a message for everyone. Just as gay people can appreciate the many straight versions of this famous tear-jerking tale, so people of all persuasions can enjoy Scrooge & Marley - if they abandon prejudice.
The movie was made for $100,000 in just 12 days, a great feat. I would have liked to have seen how much better it could have been with bigger bucks behind it. Fans will love it, maybe partly because of, rather than despite, its occasional student movie feel - watch out for when the Ghost of Christmas Present reveals the children beneath his robe. Despite its limitations, this production is funny and sweet and the story is so strong that I still had to wipe away a tear.
Part of the fun is guessing how our beloved characters and scenes will be given a gay and contemporary twist. I don't want too spoil too many surprises, but to give you a taster, Scrooge is gay with a homophobic father who kicked him out of the family home. Though he owns a successful piano bar, called Screws, Scrooge won't start an employee health plan or donate to an Aids charity. He attributes seeing Marley's ghost not to an "undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of an underdone potato", but to MSG in his Chinese food. Scrooge's long-suffering and underpaid assistant, Bob Cratchit, has a male partner and adopted children.
As in the original story written in 1843, there is social comment. Fezziwig, is depicted by Dickens as a jolly, kind boss who cared for his employees before the industrial revolution swept many men like him aside.

I didn't expect much in terms of quality, as the movie is very low budget and I found out about the movie when they were trying to raise enough money to finish the film. However, I really enjoyed the movie. Despite a few weak special effects, the movie has a lot of heart and the actors' enthusiasm for the story shines.

If watching we children, there is a very harsh scene when Scrooge's father discovers him with his boyfriend, and the father violently throws him out of the house. This scene may be difficult for children to understand. Also, Scrooge's life on the street implies some connection to prostitution, but depending on the child's age, the references may go over his/her head. Movie may be appropriate depending on the age and maturity of your child/children, but I would suggest an adult-only preview first.

I saw this movie on opening night and I left with a huge grin on my face and a great feeling of community. It was well done with some great special effects and the acting was superb! A gay twist to the classic Scrooge story was presented well. This is definitely a family movie and will leave you walking away with a warm heart and you will be glad that you saw it! A great way to start out the holiday season!

I heard about Scrooge & Marley on Twitter and decided to buy the film when someone sent out a tweet with the Amazon link. It arrived in Australia in about 7 days, which was pretty good seeing as the Christmas holiday was in the middle of that.

Scrooge & Marley gives us a gay retelling of the classic Dickens novel, A Christmas Carol. Ben Scrooge is a crabby, angry business man, an owner of a gay bar who hates the community and everyone else within eye shot. On Xmas eve the ghost of his dead business partner Jacob Marley visits him to advise if he's not careful, he'll spend eternity chained to his sins.

This most recent retelling of the classic story has a fantastic cast of strong actors who seem to thoroughly enjoy their time as their characters. The standards of the tale are there, but with a gay twist and the spontaneous song and dance numbers are highly fun.

Having watched the film yesterday I'm confident in saying it's now a scheduled part of my "must-watch holiday viewing".

If you're after a fun, light-hearted holiday story about love and redemption, Scrooge & Marley is a must own. I've got a feeling that Christmas time or not, it's a film I'll watch again and again.

Scrooge and Marley is a modern-day version of Dicken's "A Christmas Carol", presented with heart and a gay sensibility. It's a very warm, funny movie--one that the whole family can enjoy. You simply can't go wrong with gay royalty Bruce Vilanch as Fezziweg or using poppers as a prop.

Last night saw the premiere at the Music Box Theater in Chicago (where the movie was filmed using local talent). Loved the original music score. It may have been filmed with a shoestring budget, but it delivers a very powerful message. To echo the film's producers, it shows our non-gay friends and relatives that we are more like alike each other than we are different.

I was surprised at how closely this follows the original Christmas Carol while being totally Gay! Well written, well acted, wealth of LGBT personalities you have met before, but never this way. A modern Chicago boys town presentation that is probably closer to the spirit of Dickens than many of the recent "straight" remakes of the Victorian original. Watched it twice the first night.
