Originally released in 2012, Scrooge & Marley has recently been re-released to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the film. Scrooge & Marley is a gay campy take on the Dickens morality tale, A Christmas Carol.

There is music, dancing, and plenty of tongue in cheek humor in this Christmas movie. This is a story of a gay Scrooge who learns about kindness with the help of the required ghosts and his gay friends and family. Christmas Past brings Scrooge back to his past Christmas traumas and revisits the first he fell in love. He also gets a musical tour from the Ghost of Christmas Present.

There are many gay touches in the film. Tiny Tim has two fathers, while Scrooge has a lesbian niece and ends up with his own male partner. Bruce Vilanch plays Fezziwig.

Scrooge & Marley is full of glitz and glitter to enjoy. There is also a tinge of Broadway belting in the music. However, some of the songs are superfluous.

The actor who portrays Scrooge, David Pevsner, is convincing. This movie is not R rated but there are plenty of “smooching” scenes. The movie is directed by Richard Knight Jr. and Peter Neville. Music is mostly by Lisa McQueen and Richard Knight Jr.

 Scrooge & Marley is a light movie that can provide an enjoyable viewing experience.
