My Penny of View : Again Disney has been reproduced the classical Christmas Carol. In the past 26 years, they have released Mickey's Christmas Carol in 1983 and The Muppet Christmas Carol for Jim Henson Productions in 1992. Recently, the same old story has been adopted in The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past starring Matthew McConaughey indirectly. This movie was specially made for Jim Carrey, he was starring a few roles includes Ebenezer Scrooge as a young, middle-aged, and old man, and three of the ghosts who haunt Scrooge. He did a great job in performing different voices for different characters. Although there is critics saying that Jim Carrey was good only because the different characters was appeared in the different version or setting.

The movie was the same old story about an old moneylender who was cold-hearted greedy and he doesn't like Christmas. On the Christmas eve, his passed away business partner who died 7 years ago came to visit him and tell him that he will be visited by three ghosts which are Ghost of Christmas Past, Ghost of Christmas Present and Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. The purposes of their visits was to recall about what he did in the past that made him lost the love one, to show him what he was doing was totally wrong and what will happen to him if he continue his bad life principal. He has discerned about his mistake and he changed his attitude the next morning which was Christmas day.

The story was nothing special but Robert Zemeckis seems want to impress the audiences with 3D animation effect. Previously he has used 3D animation in The Polar Express (2004) and Beowulf (2007). Each characters has been well developed, nowadays the animations are competing about the technology they used. The casts have great voice talent because most of them recorded for more than one character. This movie certainly have great teaser for Christmas season. I will recommend this movie if you are watching 3D because it provide an exhilarating visual experience.
