Movie: Scrooged
“Richard Donner’s Scrooged is a feel good Christmas fable. A re-imagining of the Dickens classic, set in the caring and sharing 80s. The plot is simple – a hard-hearted TV exec is shown the folly of his ways by a series of ghosts. There are no twists or surprises – the outcome is obvious from the first five minutes, but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable,” according to imdb.com
