'Scrooged' Loses Best Modern Adaptation of 'A Christmas Carol' Crown

January 29, 2009


I just got a late submission to the Invent a Horrible Christmas Movie Contest from a couple months ago. Sadly, it's too late for it to win, but it's also too good not to share:

"Ghosts of Girlfriends Past - A modern re-imagining of A Christmas Carol in which Matthew McConaughey is visited by several ghosts that force him to review the numerous relationships of his past, present and future, teaching the consummate bachelor to change his philandering ways and settle down with his true love (Jennifer Garner)."

That entry comes from New Line Cinema, and they even made a trailer:

New Line, that's hilarious, and I appreciate the work you put into making it seem real, but the contest winner has already been awarded. Furthermore, I'm a bit thrown by your decision to hypothetically release this in May when the addition of a Christmas Tree here and there would make it a huge December hit. But good try.
