See the Cast of ‘Scrooged’ Then and Now

Released in 1988, 'Scrooged' was a darkly comedic take on Charles Dickens' classic 'A Christmas Carol,' starring Bill Murray in the Ebenezer Scrooge role as Frank Cross, a cynical TV executive alienated from his family and unable to find real happiness. Struggling to put together a live production of 'A Christmas Carol' on Christmas Eve, Frank finds that his real life begins to resemble the story he's producing as three ghosts visit him throughout the evening to try and get him to change his ways before it's too late.

The film took Murray from battling ghosts in 'Ghostbusters' to learning lessons from them, and over time it's become a holiday comedy classic. 25 years later, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see where they are now.

Homemade Ornaments Are the Best!

I have ornaments hanging on my tree just like everyone else. I have the ones I bought 20 years ago that are made of glass and, every once in a while, break.

But the ones I hold dearest to my heart are the ones that are handmade by the ones I love.

Do you hang them too?
