And the best Scrooge.
By far BEST telling of this Classic Christmas story starring Michael Caine in the main role of Ebenezer Scrooge. But again iTunes has cut out major portions of this film including an entire 5 minute song which is not only beautiful but the crux of the story and explains "Why" Scrooge is the miser he has become. The 3rd time I've purchased an iTunes film to discover LARGE portions cut out. Shame on you iTunes. I was so disappointed because this song is my favorite part of this film Ripping people off - and at Christmas. SHAME ON YOU iTUNES! L-L
Awesome movie, but I wish we could get the version with the Love is Gone song. I was very upset mid movie when it was awkwardly missing. Christmas is ruined!
This is actually my first iTunes movie purchase and it was well worth it. This movie is still as fantastic as when I was a child, and I think is well worth picking up even if you have never seen it. Great buy. :)
This is the Christmas film my family and I watch every Christmas! It's the best one. However, this version is missing one of the songs! Such a shame, otherwise it would have got 5 stars for sure.
As a kid, I was as attached to this as classics like Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer and the original 1950's "A Christmas Carol/Scrooge". Christmas wouldn't be right without this. p.s. hey iTunes, what's with the negative ,movie cover, eh?
They cut out one of the songs! The love is gone! However I didn't like the song anyways, I just woulda liked a complete copy.
A family favorite, highly recommended for the young and young at heart :)
I'm a huge fan of Christmas movies and have been since I was a child, but my top three most memorable and dearly loved movies are this one, Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Cartoon), Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and A Christmas Story. I always have to watch this one first though!
I love this movie. Been watching it at least once every christmas season since I'm a kid. It's not christmas without it.
