About a third of the way through the closing credits, Bill Murray appears with the word "Scrooged" across the screen in front of him.

Easy to forget about this movie because you'll only watch it once a year at best - that's if you own it. If not, try it again. I'm sure you'll agree this is actually one of Bill Murray's best performances! It's not a Christmas movie - it's a comedy. It belongs in everybody's collection.
