When I said The Muppet Christmas Carol was the best, I was of course referring to the traditional versions of A Christmas Carol. For an adaptation, there is nothing darker, funnier or more touching than Michael O'Donoghue's "Scrooged," with Bill Murray. Again, it's the dark ones who can really tug at the heartstrings, and I always tear up at the end. Honestly. Watched it tonight as we assembled the tree -- the girls got to see it for the first time (with appropriate warnings, but the only issue is language, and some slapstick violence). "Thanks, Lee Majors, but this is one Santa who's going out the front door." The movie gets funnier every year.
