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,

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. Full Review

A Christmas Carol -- I mean the source material, without a corporate possessive attached to it -- remains among the most moving works of holiday literature, and Mr. Zemeckis has remained true to its finest sentiments. He is an innovator, but his traditionalism is what makes this movie work. Full Review

What are in very short supply, though, are the central chords of Dickens' carol: Crachit's generous spirit, Tiny Tim's sad plight, Scrooge's emotional arc as he finds his humanity. Oh, the scenes are there amid the action, but they are fleeting. By the time A Christmas Carol finishes piling its many shiny presents with their many bells and whistles under the tree, there's no room left for tears for Tiny Tim. Bah humbug indeed. Full Review

This Christmas Carol seems like a pale ghost of Dickens' magical Christmas classic. Full Review
