The Best Dickens' Adaptation. Period.

SOMEONE NEEDS TO DUST OFF THOSE PUPPETS! THE GRIME IS MAKIN' MA EYES WATER! Dickens and Muppets are such a great combo; the biting dialogue, meta-textual storytelling, the mixture of heart and humor. The best Christmas Carol film adaptation ever. Deal with it.

Charles Dicken's Classic Story, with the Muppets

We've all seen this story in plays, we've read it for homework, and we've watched it through cartoon and movie adaptations. That being said, how does The Muppet Christmas Carol stand against the rest? Is it really that good?

Sort of. There are some nice moments or rather moments that really feel like scenes from A Christmas Carol. However, there are also moments that feel off, mostly because many of the characters are Muppets. And to be honest, I don't think of the Muppets when I imagine a serious telling of A Christmas Carol. However, there is still a great amount of effort put into it to make it work. Many Muppet characters really come to life as characters we all know from the story and I personally think that Michael Caine does a good job at portraying Scrooge.

If you want to be entertained by the Muppets because you lik ethe Muppets, you will be entertained. If you love A Christmas Carol and want to see a new version, you'll probably enjoy yourself. Is it made more for kids, yes, is that bad, not neccesarily. Unfortunately there are some bland moments and some characters like the Ghost of Christmas Past are so creepy that it's just distracting. If you want to have a nice christmas movie, go ahead and give it a watch, just accept that it's the Muppets so don't have any high expectations. Still, it's very Christmassy and if that's all you care about, you'll definitely enjoy yourself.

Not necessary but nice

"The Muppet Christmas Carol" is another adaption of a classic novel by the Muppet show, displaying the famous play by Charles Dickens this time. It tells the story of an old man who is greedy and hated by almost everyone around him. When three ghosts appear and show him the reality of past, present and future, he soon begins to rethink his believes.

The producers did create a cute and heart-warming movie here. While it is not utterly creative to start another adaption of the Dickens novel and nobody would've really missed it, it still includes a lot of intelligent humor that makes the time fly by and enough fluffy puppets to get the audience emotionally involved. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the singing parts, but on the other hand those belong to all of the older Disney movies as well and therefor will add a touch of nostalgia for all the Disney fans out there.

All in all this is great for people with children or fans of the Muppets. For anyone else it still has its entertainment value but it won't have the same impact.
