* ThreeDMovie: The third major attempt by Creator/RobertZemeckis, though it does a better job of avoiding the UncannyValley than his first attempt, ''WesternAnimation/ThePolarExpress''.

* JumpScare: During the scene where Scrooge sees Marley's face on the knocker, he reaches out to touch it...and Marley's eyes snap open and some of his teeth fly out!

* JumpScare: During The movie practically relies on these. An example is the scene where Scrooge sees Marley's face on the knocker, he reaches out to touch it...and Marley's eyes snap open and some of his teeth fly out!

* AdaptationalVillainy: In canon, Scrooge was said to be honest even before the ghosts changed him. In this film, he [[RobbingTheDead steals the gold coins that were covering the late Jacob Marley's eyes]].



* LaserGuidedKarma: Scrooge [[RobbingTheDead robs the late]] Jacob Marley out of two coins and the Ghost of Christmas Future shows a future where a deceased Scrooge is robbed out of curtains and the clothes his corpse would be buried with.



* RobbingTheDead: In his EstablishingCharacterMoment, Scrooge takes the two coins off of Marley's eyes.

to:

* RobbingTheDead: In his EstablishingCharacterMoment, Scrooge takes the two coins off of Marley's eyes. Like in the book, Scrooge is shown as a future victim of this by the Ghost of Christmas Future.

* DidNotDoTheBloodyResearch: A guest at Fred's party is playing 20 Questions and guesses "Is it an arse?", meaning ass as in donkey. "Arse" will always be a rude word in Britain, and is certainly never invoked in polite Victorian parlour games.


Added DiffLines:

* SandInMyEyes: When Scrooge gets emotional at the sight of his boyhood home, he dismisses the tear on his cheek as "Nothing. Something in my eye."

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come shrinks Scrooge down to the size of a mouse, whereupon he is chased around by various domestic threats like cats and carriages. The scene contributes nothing to the plot and is just there to showcase the 3D effects.

** In fact, Zemeckis seems an avid fans of TheOner, since nearly all shots in this film have multiple camera pans.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: When The Ghost of Christmas Future chased Scrooge around on a black coach. While showing off some nifty 3-D effects and being genuinely spooky (and gave Jim Carrey a chance to adlib), it really didn't do anything to advance the plotline.
