The George C. Scott Christmas Carol
is by far the best one. I totally agree with you.
Overall, the best is probably Planes, Trains and Automobiles
with Steve Martin and John Candy. If you haven't seen it yet, see it now. It's hysterical.
A Christmas Story
is a classic. No one can deny that. And although it's not a film, I adore Blackadder's Christmas Carol
. A must-see for all fans of the series.
