SCROOGED debuts on Blu-ray November 1st


Outrageously Funny Adaptation of Dickens’ Beloved Story Starring Bill Murray
Debuts on Blu-ray November 1, 2011

HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. – Celebrate Christmas past, present and future with an uproarious and contemporary take on Charles Dickens’ classic tale when SCROOGED makes its Blu-ray debut on November 1, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment.  Starring Bill Murray as a television executive with a heart of stone, the film takes viewers on a darkly comic adventure populated by an all-star cast including Karen Allen (Raiders Of The Lost Ark), John Forsythe (“Dynasty”), Bobcat Goldthwait (Shakes The Clown), Carol Kane (The Pacifier), Robert Mitchum (The Big Sleep),
Alfre Woodard (“Desperate Housewives”) and Jamie Farr (“M*A*S*H”). 
A network TV president is perhaps the most cold-hearted man ever, but his holiday spirit is given a painful booster shot by three vengeful ghosts.  In this comedic update of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”, Bill Murray portrays Frank Cross, an evil, crass executive who caters to the lowest-of-the-lowest common denominators while firing people at will for the flimsiest of reasons. To change his cruel and tasteless ways, Cross is taken on a trip through his past to his future so that he can achieve redemption. 

The SCROOGED Blu-ray is presented in 1080p high definition with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, French 2.0 Stereo Dolby Digital and Spanish Mono Dolby Digital and English, English SDH, French, Spanish and Portuguese subtitles.  The Blu-ray includes the theatrical trailer and will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.99.

Our Review:
I love that so many great movies are being re-released on Blu-ray. If you already own a Blu-ray, you know that the picture quality is much better on Blu-ray than DVD. Ever since my husband bought a Blu-ray player last year, we have been watching movies on it and we simply could not imagine watching movies any other way. For this holiday season, we are looking forward to sitting down and watching SCROOGED as a family. SCROOGED is Bill Murray's modern retelling of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol. I have always liked Bill Murray in  this movie. I think that his acting was superb in this film. He played a mean TV executive and he did a great job at it. His character was one that we loved to hate. This movie does have a heart warming ending that always gets us excited about Christmas and lift our holiday spirits.

To buy this movie for yourself this holiday season or to give it as a gift, please preorder a copy from Best Buy.
