It’s time for your weekly sneak peek at what’s coming up soon on The Forgotten Flix Podcast. Our next movie is:

Scrooged (1988)!

Synopsis (courtesy of Wikipedia): Scrooged is a 1988 American comedy film, a modernization of Charles Dickens’ novella, A Christmas Carol. The film was produced and directed by Richard Donner, and the cinematography was by Michael Chapman. The screenplay was written by Mitch Glazer and Michael O’Donoghue. The original music score was composed by Danny Elfman.

The cast includes Bill Murray, Karen Allen, Bobcat Goldthwait, John Forsythe, Carol Kane, David Johansen, John Houseman, and Robert Mitchum. Murray’s real-life brothers, Brian, John, and Joel also appear in the film.

The film was marketed with references to the film Ghostbusters which had been a great success four years earlier. In the USA, the tagline for Scrooged was, “Bill Murray is back among the ghosts, only this time, it’s three against one.”
