THURS­DAY A CHRIST­MAS CAROL

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - NEWS -

NOON, SEVEN A sur­pris­ingly faith­ful adap­ta­tion of the clas­sic novel by Charles Dick­ens. You want your heart­warm­ing feel-good end­ing? Of course you are go­ing to get it. But you are go­ing to have to earn it, just like that mean old sk­in­flint Ebenezer Scrooge (Jim Car­rey) must earn a seem­ingly un­de­served shot at re­demp­tion. And so, one snowy Christ­mas Eve, Scrooge is kid­napped by a tri­fecta of spec­tres who will teach the miser the er­ror of his ways. An­i­mated in the eerie ‘’mo­tion-cap­ture’’ style of ThePo­larEx­press, and the vis­ual power bran­dished here is im­pres­sive. Might be too much for chil­dren un­der 10.
