Ingenious comedy update of A Christmas Carol. Frank Cross (a brilliantly cast Bill Murray) is a TV boss who really, really hates the holiday season but that is not too surprising, because he seems to hate most things. Frank's channel is producing a version of the Dickens story, and, to his horror, everything that happened to Scrooge starts to happen to Frank, with three ghosts arriving to show him how his life has gone wrong. NOTE: After ordering Scrooged, the disc you will receive may be marked as being a '12' certificate. However, this relates to the extra features on the DVD and not the film itself, which is certified with the BBFC as a 'PG'. Into Film has consulted the BBFC, and their guidance is that as long as a club leader screens only the film (and not additional features or audio commentaries, etc.), Scrooged can be treated as a 'PG' certificate in a school setting.
This version of the classic Dickens story about a stingy businessman taught a Christmas lesson by ghosts emphasises Victorian England's bleak side.
