Fan-freaking-tastic! This movie was beautiful and scary at the same time. I wouldn't suggest any little ones to watch this feature, as it is quite dark for a 3-D animation film.
Mr. Merry Jim Carrey did an amazing job - doing pretty much every single role in "The Christmas Carol". It reminded me of how Tom Hanks also played many of the roles in "Polar Express" (also a great movie).
The facial expressions and signature Jim Carrey jolts were copied and accentuated for good laughs throughout the film.
It left me feeling re-inspired to be extra charitable this holiday season. I can only do so much, but the day I'm rolling in it and have loads of cashola, I too will be helping lots more.
Gary Oldman was also in this movie, with his character looking just like him, just a little more red-cheeked and jolly. He too did a wonderful performance.
There are so many good parts in this movie...
I will be purchasing this flick and will be watching for Christmases to come! If you get a chance to make it to the theater - watch it!
Here is the trailer for this timeless classic story from Charles Dickens below.
