The Muppet Christmas Carol, another favorite Christmas movie at our house, is narrated by Gonzo as Charles Dickens and stars Michael Caine as Scrooge and Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit. This is a priceless adaptation of the book. The songs are fun, the humor hits just the right note and Michael Caine is, as always, perfect. We are big fans of Michael Caine, and his presence in a film is almost always enough for us to seek it out.
Here's the Scrooge song from the beginning of the movie:
We're not fans of the Muppet movies in general, though we loved their first movie and Muppet Treasure Island, but this film is a wonderful re-telling of the classic Christmas tale.
We watched this again tonight. The Husband says it makes him feel good, and Heaven help him, sometimes a feel-good movie is the perfect thing.
