The Muppet Christmas Carol

TrailerTickets
Het is de avond voor Kerst en Scrooge is weer eens onvriendelijk tegen iedereen. Dickens' verhaal, verteld door Gonzo met behulp van Rizzo the rat. Met hulp van de drie geesten en verwijzingen naar bijna elke Kerstfilm die ooit gemaakt is, komt Scrooge erachter dat liefde voor elkaar het enige is dat telt.

 

Brian Henson directs his late father's creations in the Charles Dickens classic, the best known (and most oft-filmed) Christmas story of all time. Michael Caine plays the old miser Scrooge with Kermit as his long-suffering but ever-hopeful employee Bob Cratchit, Miss Piggy as Cratchit's wife, and a host of Muppets (including the Great Gonzo as an unlikely Charles Dickens) taking other primary roles in this bright, playful adaptation of the sombre tale.

Or at least it starts brightly enough--the anarchic humour soon settles into mirthful memories and a sense of melancholy as the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future take Scrooge on a journey of his lonely, wasted life. Michael Caine makes a wonderful Scrooge, delightfully rediscovering the meaning of life as fantastic creations from Henson's Creature Shop (developed specially for this film) take the reins as the three ghosts.

While the odd mix of offbeat humour and drama undercuts the power of Dickens's drama, this kid-friendly retelling makes an excellent family drama that adults and children alike can enjoy.
