Becky and I went to see the new flick Christmas Carol last week with our three children at the Kerasotes theater in Castle Rock, CO. The Fandango website at A Christmas Carol describes the movie as follows:
“Charles Dickens’ timeless tale of an old miser who must face Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet-to-Come, as they help to bring kindness to his otherwise cold heart. The Ghosts remind him of the man he used to be, the hard truth of what Jim Carrey plays four separate roles in this updated version of A Christmas Carol. Carrey portrays Scrooge, as well as the three ghosts (Past, Present, and Yet-to-Come). His dynamic character roles keep the four characters as diverse as being played by four actors…”
Disney’s A Christmas Carol is an animated movie that is along the lines of Polar Express and other high-end animated films. This is the classic story of Scrooge and it’s done extremely well. In fact, it’s downright amazing! You will forget you’re watching an animated film. Jim Carrey does a fantastic job and this movie will get you into the spirit of Christmas. If you have a Movie Bucks card from Kerasotes you can see it for $5 and it’s definitely worth seeing on the big screen.
We didn’t opt for seeing the 3D version, but I’m sure that’s fantastic. The regular version of the film was great and this classic story by Charles Dickens just never gets old. It’s just a reminder of what’s really important in life and how easy it is to get caught up in the wrong things. Scrooge is just an amazing character and our kids had never seen the movie or read the book, so it was a whole new experience for them. Bianca was the only one that didn’t like it that much, so maybe stick with children who are 9 years old and up.
We would definitely recommend seeing this one for the Christmas Season.
