Well-done & much needed
25 April 2006 | by (Slidell, La.) – See all my reviews

This was a very well-done movie and certainly much needed for our time. Dean Jones was first rate as the Christmas-hating old miser, who wants to eliminate all references and symbols of the true meaning of Christmas. The story of Scrooge is one I've loved since I was a boy and as a born-again Christian myself (not seething), this adaptation takes on special significance.

It's certainly difficult today to counter political correctness in the entertainment industry since even using the word "Christmas" can land you in trouble. The vehemently anti-Christian comments of the first reviewer are a good example of how our culture has deteriorated to the point where the true meaning of Christmas is ridiculed and the followers of Christ are maligned.
