The Muppet Christmas Carol
I suppose if you got the have a Christmas film it might as well be The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992). Directed by Jim Henson’s son Brian, it stars Michael Cain as your main man Ebeneezer Scrooge. All the best lines are reserved for Gonzo the Great, who as Charles Dickens narrates us through this Christmas tale, and Rizzo the Rat in thier Laurel and Hardy type partnership. Even with the song and dance routines the film sticks to the original story and is passably funny. I just hope they get the lights fixed before the next season, bah humbug to you all.
