    If some of the animation overdoes it, a lot of it is downright gorgeous. Few images this year have followed me home like the Ghost of Christmas Past, here imagined as a bright-flamed candle with the face of a child. It flickers. It whispers. It flies. show more

    Carrey is cool, in such movies as Liar Liar and The Mask.Here, we see a different take on the classic Ebenezer story.With popular voices from Hoskins and Wright Penn,we see a heart of stone become warm and melted.There are certain scenes that would frighten younger children.In the major observation,I still love the transformation from miser to a generous chap.

    Wow, can’t believe there are still major movies like this with out any African-American characters in them. How do you make a movie with this many characters and not one minority of any sort in it. Shame on Jim Carrey for allowing that. After all it was only the Wayan Brothers, (two black guys) that made him famous. Nobody knew who he was until, In living Color. And by the way the movie sucked, definitely not for kids. Waste of mon
