5.0 out of 5 stars Great looking blu ray ! December 7, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Other reviewers have commented on their likes or dislikes for this 1988 Christmas movie starring Bill Murray. I'm a Bill Murray fan and I love this movie. What I want to comment on in this brief review is the quality of the blu ray transfer. I'm happy to report that the transfer is excellent! Finally fans of Scrooged can enjoy watching Frank Cross discover the true meaning of Christmas in beautiful hi-def. I'm so tired of buying a blu ray of a favorite movie and getting something that looks worst than standard-def. This is NOT the case with Scrooged. It looks and sounds great. Buy and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very Scroogey Holiday Classic November 15, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bill Murray is the new Scrooge in the classic tale done yet again. I remember a reviewer giving it a low rating because he said it seemed as though Murray's character really didn't like people. Helllooo, isn't that what actors are supposed to do? This version of the old Chrsitmas tale is a good retelling of the story. Murray is mean to everyone including his only brother (played by his real younger brother). The 3 spirits that visit Frank Cross (Murray's role) are wacky to say the least. Carol Kane plays the ghost of Christmas present and is probably the funniest of the spirits. Murray has this act down pat. He's a big t.v. exec and fires Elliot Laudermilk (Bobcat Goldthwait) just for disagreeing with him. By the way, his fires Laudermilk on Christmas eve.

Alfre Woodard plays his longsuffering assistant and tries to be Cross' conscience since he doesn't have one of his own. In the visit to Christmas past we learn that television played the biggest role in raising him since his parents weren't the greatest in the world. Christmas doesn't mean much because his parents didn't put up Christmas lights, buy a tree or get him presents. His father does come home one night and drop a package of veal in front of him as a Christmas gift but the young Frank Cross tells his dad that he wanted a choo-choo train. His dad, a butcher, (played by Brain Doyle Murray, Bill Murray's real life brother) is totally unsympathetic and suggests that his son get a job even though he's only four.

There are lots of laughs here as the cast pokes fun at the t.v. industry from behind this comedy. The end of the film might be a little mushy bit it's fine here since Cross is so mean during the rest of the film. He even steals a cab from a little old lady carrying a load of packages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you really NEED to read a review? November 25, 1999
Format:DVD
Since the first time I ever saw this movie, I have watched it a few times a year, never tiring of the modern take on the Dickens classic. Bill Murray is excellently cast as cold hearted TV exec Frank Cross and with each scene, the movie draws you ever-closer to the Christmas feeling.
I watch this EVERY Christmas Eve and no matter how bad a year you've had, by the time this movie finishes and it's time to go to bed before Father Christmas comes, you'll be in the true Spirit of the Season.
I've yet to meet someone who doesn't lean towards this as their movie of choice for the festive period. And now... I finally get to see it on DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Scrooged April 4, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great Christmas movie! It is a new take on an old favorite that stars Bill Murray. He plays the sharp tongued Frank Cross, and he is really good at being mean. David Johansen was scary as the ghost of Christmas past, Carol Kane was the ghost of Christmas present, and Chaz Conner was the ghost of Christmas future. Carol Kane was a scream, and I am sure Bill Murray had a bruise or two when they finished filming.

5.0 out of 5 stars "What about my bonus?" "Towel or a facecloth?" November 12, 2003
By M. Hart
Format:DVD
In 1988, Richard Donner (who directed the 1976 horror film "The Omen", the 1978 film "Superman" and all four "Lethal Weapon" films between 1987 and 1998) directed the hilarious film "Scrooged", which is a modernized remake of the classic Charles Dickens' short story "A Christmas Carol". The film stars the well-known actor/comedian Bill Murray as Francis 'Frank' Xavier Cross, the "Ebenezer Scrooge" character of the film. Frank is a high-rolling, power-hungry, penny-pinching TV executive who decides to produce a live version of the classic "A Christmas Carol" on his TV station on Christmas Eve. His secretary, Grace Cooley (Alfre Woodard), is the "Bob Cratchit" of the story. With several children to raise, including her seemingly autistic son Calvin (Nicholas Phillips)--the "Tiny Tim" of the story, Grace has no choice but to begrudgingly work for Frank underpaid and under appreciated. When Frank's boss, Preston Rhinelander (Robert Mitchum, 1917-1997), decides that Frank needs as assistant, the brown-nosing Bryce Cummings (John Glover), Frank becomes extremely jealous; but Frank's problems are only beginning when the ghost of a former coworker, Lou Hayward (John Forsythe), pays him a visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Feel Good Movie, Period
We watch Scrooged every holiday season. It is a witty adaptation of Charles Dickens " A Christmas Carol". A fun group of actors, and truly memorable scenes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really funny, then really raunchy.
Great movie, then it starts to go downhill. Unnecessary raunchiness, jokes, even fully exposed breasts. What. This is not a rated R movie. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Scrooged dvd
Bill Murray is either funny or trying to be but not. In this case he does a very good job. It's a modern take on a Christmas Carol. Several stars join in this funny telling.
