One of the most enduring of all holiday stories gets a fresh screen workout from Disney, director Robert Zemeckis and Jim Carrey in this inventive retelling.
Carrey expectedly plays legendary miser Ebenezer Scrooge, but thanks to the "motion capture" technique Zemeckis also used on "The Polar Express," the actor takes on several other characters of the Charles Dickens classic as well. Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Robin Wright and Bob Hoskins also lend their images and voices to the project. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; deleted scenes. *** (PG: AS) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
