Old-west Scrooge
7 January 2002 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

This was a very good re-telling of the "Christmas Carol" story. I really liked the slight changes in the end and think others will as well if, like me, they take every opportunity to watch Scrooge! Take a chance on this one and live a little.
