I was a captain of industry; feared by men, adored by women.
Adored! Come on, let's be honest, Lew. You *paid* for the women!

About a third of the way through the closing credits, Bill Murray appears with the word "Scrooged" across the screen in front of him. He looks down and brushes the front of his jacket a few times, with each brush a couple of the letters in the title chase off the screen as if he's brushing them off his jacket. See more »
I don't know where this movie came from... the casting, the directing, etc.... but all I can say is this is truly a miracle movie based on the idea of miracles! For those with faith. For those who are responsible sensitive caring human beings... this HAS to be an amazing film.
The message is centuries old... from the Bible and before ON the good messages are everlasting. Good and Evil is a pretty clear cut thing in life... they're very easy to tell apart to those who are as they should be.
I loved this film. If I could I would rent a theater every couple months and invite all the people who "get this" movie... to come truly have fellowship with one another... a great time had by all.
Do yourself a favor if you're a person who relates to being a do-gooder. Check out this film. You "shouldn't" be disappointed. It's truly a miracle movie and I'm still blown away that it was even ever made. OUTSTANDING film.
Thanks and God bless! MJK
