I have seen many versions of this story told from the original black and white film to the first colour film and of course to the adaptations made by The Muppets and Disneys Scrooge McDuck. A classic tale and with Jim Carreys talent of playing multiple people from Scrooge to all the 3 Ghosts you know that your in for a treat.
To summarise the film its starts off the way youd expect it to introducing Scrooge as the Unhappy Christmas hating man and wishes that the occasion would never come around.
One night a visit from his late partner Jacob Marley warns him that if he doesnt change his ways he will be doomed to suffer the same fate as himself
3 spirits shall appear to show Scrooges
Present and Future
as each ghost passes the consequences get darker and darker till the point of where you meet the last ghost who is the scariest of all
This also leading to why this film should of had a higher rating as a lot of these scenes could be frightening for kids. HIGH BUDGET SPECIAL EFFECTS make it worth seeing once. However the reason I gave it a four star rating is because its the same story told over again and there is not much new material you can put into a classic that has been made over and over in the past.
