Stars: Bill Murray, Karen Allen
Humbug… Humbug! Would anybody like a humbug? (With apologies to Edmund Blackadder). Dickens’ much-recycled tale of grumpy old Scrooge and his lack of Christmas spirit gets a shiny late ’80s makeover with one of the best grouchy-britcheses you could ask for in Bill Murray. He’s a TV exec pushing all those around him to breaking point to get an extravagant live take on A Christmas Carol to air. Will a visit from three ghosts bust his Grinchiness? Carol Kane and New York Doll David Johansen add to the festive fun.
