    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.
