Movie Review for Scrooged
They made him a believer in this 80s movie. An unbeliever of Christmas is soon converted.
Frank Cross (played by Bill Murray) is the top man in charge of a television station that is airing a version of Dicken’s “Christmas Carol” in the movie Scrooged.
Since Frank did not have a good Christmas in his childhood, he hated the season and was not too thrilled about the Christmas show. But, it took the ghosts of past, present and future to make him experience the joy that the holiday brings in Scrooged.
