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 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.
