Bill Murray stars in this modern retelling of "The Christmas Carol" on a big budget. Murray plays a tight wad, mean-spirited television network executive who is feared to be heading in the wrong direction in life. So he is visited by a ghost... you probably already know the rest. A refreshing and creative variation of the classic story and it's full of peculiarities and odd humor. People who dislike Bill Murray will probably dislike this film. Highlighted by Carol Kane's energetic performance as the Ghost of Christmas Present.
