CHRISTMAS MOVIE COUNTDOWN #22: Scrooged

As far as Christmas films are concerned I’m not too bothered and very fussy (bah humbug). But anything with Bill Murray (funniest man on the planet) starring is acceptable seasonal viewing. Following the same traditional tale of Charles Dickens ‘A Christmas Carol’ and -shot TV boss Frank Cross changes his selfish heartless ways to discover the true meaning of Christmas, after a visit from three madcap ghosts of Christmas. Cross is a modern day – well, 80’s – business scrooge, giving his own brother a towel for Christmas and refusing his assistant a bonus right to her face isn’t even the worst of his heartless attitude. It’s a very cheesy 80’s film, but that doesn’t mean it can’t also be a good Christmas film – especially when Bill Murray is the star of the show.

DOES IT PASS THE BECHDEL TEST??

Franks assistant Grace speaks briefly to her (un-named) daughter about not getting her Christmas bonus – but the conversation is less than a minute and sadly slips back into being about Frank Cross, it’s a massive fail for this film
