Disney’s A Christmas Carol – 0 stars

Take a classic Christmas tale, animate it in the creepy Polar Express method, cast Jim Carrey as Ebeneezer Scrooge, drain the tale of any nuance or subtlety, make the ghost of Christmas past child molester creepy and Marley so horrifying his jaw falls off, and dramatize it in such a manner that you fault cartoon characters for overacting, and you have a Robert Zemeckis holiday “classic.”  The only redeemIng feature is the guilty pleasure you’ll get when you imagine how terrified a child in the theater would be during this family film.  Grotesque.

    The 3D was pretty cool as I had never seen a movie in that format before but after a time it became like that SCTV sketch where they kept pushing innocuous items into the screen and saying “ooh very scary”
