This adaptation of "A Christmas Carol" is fantastic. Rich Little's impersonations of W.C. Fields, Richard Nixon, Johnny Carson, Edith Bunker, Truman Capote, Jack Benny etc. are typically excellent... and the replacement of the more typical mannerisms of characters in Dickens' classic with these impersonations is extremely well done.
The only conclusion I can draw from the outrageously low score this movie currently has on IMDb is that some of the people who've rated this movie are not familiar with a significant number of the actors and comedians who are parodied and impersonated in the movie.
Well, that, or IMDb's "weighted average" system is garbage.
This movie is a classic.
