A Christmas Carol

Jim Carrey plays Scrooge in the chin/nose prosthesis he last wore for A Series of Unfortunate Events, but here it’s motion-capture animated in 3-D. This film deserves praise for being true to the Dickens story and putting misery-guts Ebenezer centre stage, but there isn’t much for kids to hook into emotionally and, swoopy flying sequences aside, they might find it a little dull. 7/10
