Behind The Mirror recommends the story of Frank Xavier Cross, a man on whom the cautionary tale of Scrooge doesn’t rub off until he runs into some ghosts of his own, and even then, well, he’s got stuff to do.
The perfect revamp of the Scrooge tale, Scrooged takes the mickey out of cynicism as well as the zip-a-dee-doo-dah factor, putting everything in sobering perspective. An unpretentiously feelgood story, farcical from beginning to end.
For adults only (though kids would benefit from it too).
Starring: The Groundhog Day Guy before Groundhog Day, Animal, Consumerism, The Bottom Line, Laura Ingalls, The Groundhog Dinner, The Three Ghost Stooges, and Dynasty Frankenstein.
