‘Scrooged’

(film review)

“It’s Christmas Eve! It’s… it’s the one night of the year when we all act a little nicer, we… we… we smile a little easier, we… w-w-we… we… we cheer a little more. For a couple of hours out of the whole year, we are the people that we always hoped we would be!”
(Scrooged)

Filmed by American director Richard Donner, “Scrooged” has a sense of humor and easy storytelling. At first glance, it might seem strange how a director, whose track record is dominated by films of such genres as “action” or “thriller” directed this decent comedy. However, for example, “Maverick” created by him or “Lethal Weapon” contains portions of excellent humor.

In addition to the above-described advantages, the picture benefits in many aspects thanks to the brilliant Bill Murray, who played the role of a spoiled tycoon who is indifferent to other people’s troubles.

As for the minuses of this film, I coudn`t but notice that the humor of Murray is a bit sick and sometimes it misses good cheer and fun.

In general, it turned out to be a good, strong film, although it does not look very much like a fairy tale, at least for children, but which can be described as a fairy tale for adults. My rating is 9.5/10. I do recommend watching it.
