    Just read that actor John Forsythe who played the The Ghost of Christmas time has passed away. He was 92.

    Toward the end of the film Frank is showing everyone in the studio and at home the gift his brother James gave to him. Frank then says: "you were right about everything. Except the s.s. minnow. What was the name of the ship that brought them all to Gilligan’s Island, the s.s. minnow. No points this round". At this point we cut back to James and Wendy (his wife) at home and James is shocked that Frank knew the question that he missed when they were playing Trivial Pursuit (Ghost of x-mas present scene). Then Frank says to the TV camera: "Tell him Wendy".

    This has bothered me for years; how could she possibly know??

    I have seen several comments ( this board included ) that say that Bill Murray didn’t like this movie. I can’t help but wonder why, since it put him back on top.

    Towards the beginning of the movie Frank meets his brother James in the mini gym in Frank’s Office.

    James is cycling and Frank is talking to him. Look at the black banner in the background attached to the window, it has one of the funniest lines in the film.

    Dictionary adj/ Cross, a thing they nail people to.

    hilarious

    This has been bugging me for years, so any help would be very much appreciated. In "Scrooged", Bill Murray shouts across the road to Karen Allen:

    "Young lady! Do you shop here often? Because if you do, I can walk on the other side of the street!"

    Then Frank and the Ghost look at each other and say "ba-rum-bum-bum"

    Can anyone tell me what this is in reference to, as I’ve looked everywhere on the Internet, but I assume it’s an American TV reference that I simply don’t get…

      It’s not in reference to anything. He asks her if she shops there often so he can avoid getting hit by her again. It’s a simple joke, but yeah. I didn’t get it at first either.

    Present day is 1988. Frank goes back in time to 1955 in which he was 4 years old, this would make him 37. When he jumps ahead to the scene where he meets Claire outside the book store, the meter in the cab reads the year as being 1968. This of course would make him 17 years old in this scene which he clearly isn’t.

    Anyways great movie. Number 1 Christmas movie for me.

    When Frank is shown what could happen in the future, it shows Grace visiting Calvin in an institution. Why in the world would Calvin be in an institution? Just because he wouldn’t talk? I wouldn’t exactly call him dangerous.

    Of course THIS year when they’re not showing it on any channel any day of the whole month, we lose our tape of it, so we miss seeing it through the whole Christmas season. WHY wasn’t it on TV this year? That’s what I want to know.

    I’ve been watching this movie all my life. However, when I was younger, I never noticed that Frank’s mother was smoking on the couch while she was pregnant (guess it’s part of that old-school mentality that the fetus is impervious to external dangers). I also never realized that when she declared "I’m going out", that she was actually getting the "choo-choo" that Frank’s father neglected to get him. Wow…

    I’ve never actually seen this movie, but something about Bill Murrays picture on the cover is a major turn off. I can’t put my finger on it, but everytime I see that picture it disgust me. His expression looks very very fake. He’s grinning like some kind of insane wild man. If they would change the cover picture I might be more inclined to rent this movie. I think I’ll stick to the 1951 version or the 1984 Scott version instead.

    I thought Claire was being ridiculous when she said that they couldn’t go have dinner with the president of the company or whatever he was. She wasn’t the one sweating in the dog suit all day how could she possibly understand how Frank was feeling? He was ready to move up and he needed a girl to stand beside him and encourage him in his career. How did she expect for them to ever have a future to get married and have children if he was still playing around at the bottom of his career ladder? I don’t know. Those were just my personal thoughts on that situation. She was being unreasonable and wasn’t looking ahead. All she saw was I want to hang out with our friends. Although I agree that Frank was being an ass$%[email protected] about it when she says she’s sorry. Maybe if he’d been nicer and explained why it was important things would’ve been different. Any thoughts from others?

    I love when the stage tech is trying to get the antlers on the doormouse, and Claire calls Frank "Lumpy" so the tech guy says "excuse me Lumpy" to Frank, who replies "around here they call me Mr. Cross"

    What is it, Old Nehamkin? You are not looking well.

    There is no other movie that Tops Scrooged as the best Christmas Movie, however National Lampoons Christmas Vacation , and "A Christmas Story" are tied for second in my book.

    Did anyone else notice the blatant "Free South Africa" shots throughout the film? I’m all for the apartheid having ended, but I found it funny how they didn’t even try to work the message in anywhere; it’s in your face throughout the whole movie. I hadn’t seen the film in years and just recently watched it again, and found it funny that I didn’t remember seeing any of it before. ;)

    When frank sees claire in the future and for the first time it appears that he feels remorse. That scene sparks a truly amazing transformation within frank.

    In the "goofs" section for this movie, it says that in the crematorium scene, Frank calls his brother’s wife by the wrong name, that he called her Wendy when her name is Grace. The goofs goofed. The actress’ name is Wendy Malick, her character is Wendy Cross. Frank’s secretary is Grace, played by the great Alfre Woodard.

    To rate this as 2/10 because it ain’t your *beep* Japanese/Korean/Chinese taste, firstly please don’t just rate movies that cross your path, you ain’t smart you ain’t cool your probably some fat arsed prick that lives with his mum and listens to Moby. Not every commercialized movie is *beep* just cause it ain’t made by Tartan films you see its dicks like you that kill rates of films on imdb.

    Let me guess you love Battle Royale, Audition, Old Boy. *beep* hate you fags

    What are you doing questioning, not only your boss but the president of the freaking company???

    He is lucky Frank didn’t get him done over, mother******.

    Also, ‘scrape them off Claire’

    Some of the best advice I have ever recieved.

    Thanks Frank!

    Where Frank and the ghost are talking about Frank’s childhood and Frank talks about memories that the ghost knew were actually from a TV show he yells "You’re so pathetic, you are SO PATHETIC!". Did they all suddenly think they were making some kind of gangster movie or something where the ghost was then supposed to beat Frank to death or something? The way he yells those lines makes me think the actor was trying out for an Oscar nomination there.

    Here’s something interesting that I just found out.

    Wrestler/actor Captain Lou Albano is featured in "The Honeymooners" comic book, issue #7 (from Triad Publications in April 1988): http://www.milehighcomics.com/cgi-bin/backissue.cgi?action=bibliography&issue=40743600230%207

    In the middle of the book is an interview with Lou, in which he discusses his roles in Wise Guys and Body Slam. He adds, "I’ve also done Scrooge now, which will be out next year, a cameo as Frankie the hot dog man with Bill Murray."

    He meant Scrooged, of course, but this is the first time I’ve ever read of him being in the film. Obviously he’s not in the final film (unless I forgot about a hot dog man being in the film), so if Lou was telling the truth, he must be in a deleted scene. Too bad the Scrooged DVD doesn’t have any deleted scenes on it.

    The scene where the Ghost of Christmas Future shows Frank’s casket being placed into the incenerator reminds me of the the 1970’s film Scrooge where the character fell into the grave and into hell. That was a big wake up call for Scrooge or Frank to turn or burn.
