Goofs

The Ghost of Christmas Present tells Ebenezer to "hop on" implying they will both be riding the same horse. When Ebenezer refuses, the ghost magically jerks him aboard a second horse. One of the subsequent scenes of the two riding through the air is a close-up of Ebenezer talking directly in the Ghost's ear from behind, as would occur if the two were on the same horse. In all other scenes of them riding, they are on separate horses. See more »

Old-west Scrooge
7 January 2002 | by fleisterSee all my reviews

This was a very good re-telling of the "Christmas Carol" story. I really liked the slight changes in the end and think others will as well if, like me, they take every opportunity to watch Scrooge! Take a chance on this one and live a little.
