Critic Reviews for Scrooge

All Critics (3)

This is not a very successful movie but it isn't terrible.

May 2, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

A faithful retelling of Charles Dickens's 1843 Victorian classic novella A Christmas Carol.

December 24, 2014 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

This early sound adaptation of Charles Dickens' immortal A Christmas Carol (1843) is slow in pace and static in execution.

Audience Reviews for Scrooge

Follows the story closely - there's nothing bad about it per se, but it's so old and bad quality and there's so many versions of this story, that I probably wouldn't watch this again.

This is just the old story of Ebeneezer Scrooge, no surprises, except maybe the horrible acting.
