He's back! Mickey Mouse - in his first new motion picture in 30 years. It is an adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol, featuring Scrooge McDuck as his namesake and inspiration Ebenezer Scrooge and Mickey Mouse as Bob Cratchit. This film was based on a 1972 audio musical entitled Disney's A Christmas Carol. It is a twenty-four minute animated short film produced by Walt Disney Productions as an accompaniment to a re-release of The Rescuers.. A Christmas Carol (2009) Wiki
Too bad. Started to fall asleep 10 minutes in. Very slow paced so I can imagine small children would have trouble sitting through the whole thing. The pace of the story was all over the place - one second Scrooge didn't care about something then the next he was in tears. For me, I want to sit down to a movie like this and relax, not having to really concentrate on the makings of the movie, and unfortunately it didn't happen for me.
I have watched many of Jim Carry's films, when it comes to OTT he rates well, but sadly not in this version of Scrooge. I think I have a problem with this type of computer generated animation too. The eyes, something is odd about them, same thing with the polar express. Back to this film, I didn't even bother to watch the last half hour, I think Carry based his idea of Scrooge on an old version of Christmas Carol with Reginald Owen playing Scrooge, it worked for Owen, not for Carry. The best version in my humble opinion is a Christmas Carol/Scrooge from the fifties starring Alistair Sim.
scariest childrens movie ever. im 16 and i was jumping every now and again, but it was still such a good movie ! i would say dont let anyone under the age of 9 or 10 watch it
This is the worst rendition of this classic I have seen. Even though I know the story well, I find myself wondering why this character did not care about any of this stuff just a minute ago and now all of a sudden seems moved by it. Everything about this movie was terrible. And Jim Carrey is one of my favorite actors. Oh and I think it would freak little kids out.
its not scary come on... and its rated R not M holy a kids christmas movie rated R dream on
It's been available for purchase for more than a month. Please make this rentable.
Why would I want to buy a movie that I can only watch on a single device which will eventually be obsolete? Please bring on the rental - it's almost Christmas!
I want to RENT this please
This film is very true to the version Charles Dickens wrote a long time ago. I'd almost say it's not suited for children as there are a few scary parts, but they hidden under a slight of comic relief. Jim Carrey and the entire cast do a great job at the Motion Capture aspect of the movie. This is not your typical "Toy Story" type of animation. The actors all had to wear special head gear and allow a computer to "capture" the movements of their faces and bodies on a soundstage. Of course Jim Carrey is a master of great faces.
I have only managed to get half way through this movie so far as I was watching it with my children, and it was just way too scary for them. I love the storyline. Visually this is incredible, a feast for the eyes, but it was scary!
