I went to the movie without knowing much about the storyline. It was solely because I'm a fan of Jim Carrey and that I know he plays a few characters in the movie.
I read Lay Jing's blog post saying it was only so-so, so I didn't have high hopes. But then it surprises me a bit cos I actually love the movie! Even my dear loves it too!
It's about this old man Scrooge who is a really bad man who only cares about his money and all. He finally met three spirits/ghosts who then change his character. Part of the story was really touching but I think the most important thing is that it is such a meaningful story! It's a great movie for both adult and kids to learn more about themselves, I think. Although, my dear and I think it's a bit not-too-suitable for kids to watch because of the ghosts thingy.
And I was surprised to see Colin Firth and Robin Wright Penn! In fact, Colin Firth's character looks just as though it was he himself, a younger version of course! Really amazed by the way they created the characters using the actors' actual face!
Great movie for the coming Christmas! :)
