Nope.

Thank you for the books and for the horrifying story and... for the threat upon my life.

Argh, that sounds so familiar! It's not one of The Mummy films, is it?

Maybe one of the Avengers movies?

PS. the line "There's more of gravy than of grave about you." is actually in the book A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and is such a good line that is has been in a lot of remakes of the story.

I was also thinking of The Mummy, though I have a vague inkling that it could be from The Spiderwick Chronicles.

I know, I was kidding about wanting the (non-existent) "Jim Carrey's Christmas Carol"! I would have taken any suggested adaptation.

No, but you are close.

No, but I was not expecting this guess and now I cannot resist revealing that it is the same director!

I did, mate. Just thought I'd take a shot in the dark in case Zemeckis was somehow attached to Scream in a way I was unaware of.

Many people have won a round on a long-shot and you still only have to type "No to all" or whatever so it's not burdening you as the round-mod.

And what's the problem with a bit more participation anyway, even if it's wrong?
