Scrooged (1988) - Movie Review - Episode 199

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. Even though 2020 has done a number on all of us, we here at The Cinema Psychos Show refuse to let it take away our celebration of odd ball holiday classics. And no movie is more odd ball enough than the 1988 Bill Murray classic, SCROOGED. A film that marked the return of Murray into a leading comedic role (we'll ignore that Little Shop of Horrors cameo), Scrooged retells the classic Charles Dicken's story, "A Christmas Carol" through a modern parody that touches on everything from late 1980's obsession over television, income inequality, and a nihilistic view of Christmas. And oh yea it's all wrapped up in a wacky Bill Murray SNL sketch that you either love or hate. So grab your top of the line IBC towel and sit back as we dive into the xmas classic, SCROOGED.
