I read a review for this movie by a critic that was misleading but I said I like R. Zemeckis and Jim
Carrey so I decided to go with my initial feelings to see this movie. I'm glad I saw this film for several reasons:
The chance to see the story take on a new life with the help of todays advanced animation techniques; it was funnier than the original film which I saw as a young kid only once but I still recall the meaning of the story; it reminded me of why I always loved Christmas as a child--this movie is about love and family and the animated version conveys that as well as the live version did (contrary to the views of one movie critic); Jim Carrey and Gary Oldman (Bob Cratchit?) do an excellent job of portraying the emotions of their characters--Carrey as Scrooge a man who remembers his old self and re-embraces the joy of the Christmas holiday and Oldman's Cratchit who maintains his failth in Christmas though he and his family struggle to survive all year.
This movie is soooo funny. I saw it last weekend and I still laugh when I think about it. I've
always found Jeremy Piven to be funny (even way back when he did a movie called Lucas); when I heard that the writers of Anchorman were involved I knew I had to see it. I loved that movie and I had no doubt The Goods... would be funny.
The humor is similar in that the writers have managed to make the everyday situations into ridiculous and silly moments onscreen.
One of my favorite scenes: Will Farrell's cameo appearance, scene with him & Jeremy Piven.
It's not a waste of 12.50, the entire cast is hilarious.
