Current Movie: A Muppet Christmas Carol – Dec. 8
About This MovieMore
Charles Dickens’s tale of the greedy Mr. Scrooge turned charitable by visits from three Christmas ghosts is coming to the Egyptian Theatre for one night only, on December 8, 2018 at 7PM!
What story isn’t made better with Muppets?! And The Muppet Christmas Carol is one of the truer depictions of Dickens’s story put to film. No, really! Give or take a song or two.
What makes the Muppets work for all ages is their use of the straight man, the one sane person who sets a reference point for how off kilter the Muppets really are. And Michael Caine’s depiction of Scrooge is as straight as they come. He absolutely nails the grumpy, selfish, heartless curmudgeon without a wink while the Muppets do their thing round him. It plays perfectly!
Never seen it? Well, here’s a glimpse:
