W.C. Fields as Scrooge: Ah, no.

one of the best Christmas movies ever
21 December 2016 | by jacobjohntaylor1See all my reviews

This one of the funniest movies you will ever see. This movie is very funny. It has a great story line. It also has great acting. It also has great special effects. I need more things to say. And I am running out of things to say. 7.6 is a good ratting. But this is such a great movie 7.6 is underrating it. I give 10 out of 10. This is one of the best comedy movies ever. This is one movie that you should see. It is a great movie. Great movie great movie great movie great movie great movie great movie great movie. This a great movie. A Christmas Carol (1951) is better. Scrooge (1970) is better. A Christmas carol (1984) is better. But still this a great movie. See it. You will laugh. I have never seen anything this funny it my life.
