Q: I’m not sure you even like Christmas films… but what’s your favorite?
A: Hmmm… Ask Dr. Scrooge? No, I can seriously understand why you’d have your doubts.
But two versions of Dickens’ Christmas Carol top my list. Scrooge has some of the most amazing musical numbers while capturing the redemptive thrust of the story, and Muppet Christmas Carol almost unabashedly preaches the Gospel.
