“In response to the other comment posted, I can agree. This version is not suitable for ALL ages. Parents should be advised to monitor their small children and perhaps omit the more dramatic scenes involving the Ghost of Christmas Future. When I share this movie with little friends under 12, I take care to either distract them from those sections, or omit them, thanks to the power of the fast-forward button. (But really, todayu0026#39;s kids 8-9 and up see way more violent u0026amp; scary stuff these days!)u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHowever, having said that, I own a copy and have watched it faithfully every Christmas Eve or Christmas Day for nigh onto 20 years. It renews my spirit and reminds me of my responsibilities as a human being.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAt the tender age of 12, my Dad took me to see u0026quot;Scroogeu0026quot; in the theater when it was released for Christmas. At only 12 years of age, the scenes of the Ghost of Christmas Future were quite vivid.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHowever, the movie made such an impression on me that it influenced my entire Life philosophy. u0026quot;Mankind is our businessu0026quot; says Dickens through the Ghost of Christmas Present. This joyful movie filled with wonderful songs that bring me the Christmas Spirit every year. It also imparts the value of staying connected to matters of the spirit and heart, and illustrates the difficulties that arise when ones focus becomes only the material or the monetary. That is a valuable lesson to us all, not just at Christmas, but the whole year through.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI recommend this movie to everyone. Personally, I find it much more engaging and inspiring, not to mention, colorful, than any other version. The performances of all the actors are very entertaining. If youu0026#39;re the sentimental type, keep a hankie close by when Tiny Tim sings for his family at Christmas. What an angel!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJust my 2 cents worth!”
