”Scrooged” is one of the best anti-Christmas DVDs

WHO’S NAUGHTY AND NICE Bill Murray, Carol Kane, David Johansen, Bobcat Goldthwait

PREMISE While producing a live television performance of ”A Christmas Carol,” cynical TV exec Francis Cross (Murray) is shown the error of his Scrooge-like ways by Christmas ghosts and a disgruntled former employee.

BAH, HUMBUG! MOMENT Cross’ gaudy production features Solid Gold dancers and Mary Lou Retton as Tiny Tim (the gymnast appears in a cameo). And check out Kane’s Ghost of Christmas Present yuletide smackdown — funny stuff.

MEMORABLE QUOTE Seeing the ghost of his old boss, Cross exclaims: ”No, you are a hallucination, brought on by alcohol! Russian vodka, poisoned by Chernobyl!”
