~~ Review Script ~~ A Christmas Carol - originally written as a novel by Charles Dickens in 1843 - This classic tale shares the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a cynical and embittered old man who is visited by the three ghosts of Christmas, past, present, and future - to help him examine the errors of his ways. "A Christmas Carol" has been adapted into hundreds of films, plays, and television specials - but perhaps the most popular version though is the 1992 adaptation, "The Muppet Christmas Carol". Here's jadencampbell3's review: Surprisingly accurate to the original story, but "Muppet" combines the original story with corny musical numbers, jokes that break the fourth wall, and Michael Caine in possibly the greatest interpretations of Scrooge ever. This film is greater than its sum parts, so bad its good, and a Christmas tradition in the hearts and minds of many. ~
