Scrooged (1988) 
Review - Scrooged (1988)
2/4 stars

Frank Cross (Bill Murray) was a money-grubbing television executive who only thought of Christmas as a profit. Now he is going to live Dickens’ classic Christmas tale in “Scrooged.”

Bill Murray has never proved more that he is a bad actor than in this film. He does finally redeem himself in the finale, but throughout the film he really hams it up.

The main problem with this film is that it doesn’t seem to know what it wants to be. Sometimes it’s a happy Christmas movie, sometimes it’s a dark comedy, and never does it settle with one mood. The real world and the world teaching Frank about the true meaning of Christmas don’t seem separated enough, but I could just not know what the director was going for.

“Scrooged” is one Christmas movie that doesn’t need to be considered a classic, but is worth one watch. It doesn’t really have a Christmas feeling to it, but it has a good message, even if it’s not shown well.

Acting: 5/10
Writing: 4/10
Video/Editing: 7/10
Audio/Music: 6/10
Entertainment: 6/10

Final Score: 5.6/10
