wonderful Christmas classic!
Loved this movie. Seen it in theatre and couldn't wait till it came out on DVD so I could buy it.
It's a great Christmas movie for adults, too scary for little ones.
Mom and daughter loved this movie - exceeded expectations. BUT,... did not need the diversion from story into the Disney chase sequence. Thankfully story resumed as written. Jim Carrey once again proved he's a master of character. A solid nod to Gary Oldman, who rounded out the show. Warning: not suitable for small children!
Loved this movie. When is it ever going to come out on DVD? I will definitely purchase it.
Awesome! I can't wait to see it again!!!
I'm gonna watch it again!
If my daughter was not with me I would have walked out of the theatre. I was not stimulated very much. The only reason I have given this movie 3* is for the visual effects. They were very good. If this movie came out on TV I would not watch it again. A little too out there for me - guess I like the traditional non-scary version better. Definately would not take a child under 8 to see it.
Such fun! See this movie and become a better man!
very good movie awsome how they remade it exactly the same offcourse jim carrey had to put some comedy in it but still awsome job following the same story!
Wonderful in 3D
It's the best movie i've ever seen.
it was good but it was not the best movie i have ever seen
great movie 5 stars
Such an etertaining movie with great specail effects, 3D was awesome. Stayed true to the classic story and maybe the truest adaptation with the ability to make things more real than ever before.
although the movie was great we brought our children and it wasn't for them far to scarry.
I thought the movie was very good, however it was very scary for children. Although rated PG, most think Disney and kids..
This movie was AMAZING!!! It could not have been done better. People are dissing it because it was so dark but that was the way it was written. If you wouldn't read the novel to your kids before bed don't take them to see the movie. I firmly believe that his was the best interpertation of "A Christmas Carol" that I have seen. If you want something for the kids there is a Mickey Mouse version out there. Truley awesome! Well done to Robert Zemekis and Jim Carrey.
My wife and I were disappointed, wasn't very funny, hard to understand at times and just dark.
This movie was awesome. It visually re-imagined a classic story, yet maintained the integrity of Dickens' original storyline. The graphics are quite amazing, and yes--a little scary! Although small children might be a bit scared, it's a great holiday film! Don't listen to the critics on this one.
Wow, very good. Jim Carry did a good job.
Don't listen to the critics on this one. It is a brilliant piece of filmaking based on an inspired and timeless story topped off by a mature and restrained performance by Cary. It is a classic that will ring in many a future Christmas.
Great movie. some scary parts so not recomended for littler kids. But overal i loved this film!
Loves the story, yes some scary parts but it's for entertainment purposes, nothing more.
this movie is rated G for general, NOT PG which it should be....
Terrible movie for children! Shame on you Disney.....dead bodies, frightening scenes, the grim reaper??? Do NOT take your children to this movie....
I saw it on the weekend and I thought it was excellent! Definitely not for little kids though. They seemed to stick fairly close in dialogue to the Dickens story. We all enjoyed it.
Great movie. Classic Story that never gets old! Must watch in 3D!!! It's spectacular!
amazing animation! but scary!
Not for young kids.
Great movie....some of these reviewers need to wake up - anybody who has actually read the Dickens story will know it is a GHOST STORY that takes place in the context of Christmas. Also, parents taking their kids should realize that the movie has a PG rating for a reason! Be more informed about what you are taking your kids to. Visually stunning and extremely entertaining.
Great Movie with Stunning special effects. Dont listen to the comments, they probably didnt even see the movie
i like the movie.its good
Boring. Animation was unrealistic and grotesque. My date and I had more fun fooling around than watching the movie. HAH.
The 3D version was amazing. The effects were very well done. It is not a movie for young children under 10. The opening scene with Bob Crachett in the coffin was a little frightening. Not an uplifting movie but the effects did make up for it.
It was a fun fantasy 3D Christmas movie. Just what it advertises to be. We loved it.
I rate it as an excellent movie, though there are some parts that seem unsuitable for younger or less mature viewers.
If you are taking kids, don't bother... 1. Kids won't understand the accents 2. It is way too scary in many places for kids under ten 3. When it isn't scary, it is boring. This movie blows!
Great movie but not for children under 10yrs. This movie had it all; it was funny, scary and the 3D was awesome!
Don't waste your money. Unless you want to see the CGI. That part was great.
This was grahpic wise amazing. They added scenes just so they could have more. I would have given this a 2.5 but they didn't have to option. I was disappointed and Ihave to say this version is the worse I have ever seen. I personall would have walked out, but I was there with other people. I gave the 3 because like I said the graphics were amazing.
Definately not for kids, a bit creepy. Not many feel good parts.
wow, what a great movie! The animation was excellent. I would highly suggest seeing it in 3D. The movie is a little too 'dark' for the little ones. I wouldn't bring any child under 10 to this movie.
Definitely not for children under 10. We took our 5 year old to see it and walked out 20 minutes later because it was too scary.
excellent movie...very enjoyable
Humbug! The Grinch was so much better!
You could see the ending coming a mile away.
DO NOT take your children under 10 to this movie. We walked out 20 minutes in. You know its not a kids movie when the first scene shows a realistic dead body in a coffin.
