Trailer Probe : Disney`s A Christmas Carol

Trailer Probe watches trailers for you as part of the Jim Carrey Movie Early Warning System. If this had been an actual Jim Carrey movie, you would have been instructed where to run in your local area.

Disney's A Christmas Carol

Geek explosion content: Jim Carrey screams for nearly two whole minutes!

Here's a direct quote from the trailer:


Here's another one.


It says director Robert Zemeckis, then flashes his credits onscreen.

Back to the Future:. Great!

Forrest Gump. Well, it had Enos from Dukes of Hazzard.

Polar Express. Creepy CGI people. BBLLLEAARGH!

Dork disengagement level: The creepy CGI people from Polar Express are back, but at least this time Scrooge is supposed to look all googly eyed and menacing.

Every kids' movie must have a scene where someone tumbles down a long tunnel or slide, shot from the point of view of the person doing the sliding. Check.

The title tells punctuation to kiss its butt. Disney's A Christmas Carol looks like "Disney is a Christmas Carol." That is not an accurate statement.

This story came out in 1843. Everyone knows it. It's about time we call this THE Christmas Carol.

And it's not even about a Christmas song, it's about some jerk-hole. But now I'm just being nit-picky.

Geek explosion level: 500,000 geek parts per million.

"I wish I was back on In Living Color."
