JIM Carrey's been quiet for a while, but now he's back as the latest in a long line of actors to play festive anti-hero Ebenezer Scrooge in yet another screen version of Dickens' classic morality tale, A CHRISTMAS CAROL (PG).

Carrey plays the three ghosts as well as Scrooge as a young, middle-aged and old man.

Directed by Robert Zemeckis (The Polar Express), it is an animated film which also features Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Bob Hoskins and Robin Wright-Penn.

For anyone who doesn't know the story, Scrooge is a miserly, grumpy old man who despises Christmas until he is visited by three different ghosts who show him the true magic of the Yuletide season.
