NatLamp's Christmas vacation should have been top 10. Weird relatives, shopping
and decorating beyond excess, yeah that's the stuff.
What- no 'Bad Santa'?
"The Bishop's Wife," with Cary Grant and Utah's own Loretta Young is awesome.
Funny - We thought Little Women (Ryder) was just our family Christmas tradition.
How did you miss "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"? It trumps Rudolf.
The Bishop's Wife is my favorite. It should have been in the top ten.
Apparently noone has seen my favorite: "Fitzwilly" starring Dick VanDyke. This
movie is hilarious and you can't buy on DVD yet, but Turner Classic Movies shows
at least a couple of times in December, so check it out. The basic story is
about a butler to a widow who thinks that she is rich, but she really isn't,
however the butler doesn't have the heart to tell her this, so he steals from
the ritzy stores and sells the loot to keep money in her bank account. The
interesting twist is that he in doing all of this for the various charities that
she gives her money to. When someone who isn't part of the scheming comes into
the house the laughs begin and the butler has to pull off the biggest caper ever
on Christmas Eve to save the day. A Must see!!!
Home Alone not in the top 10? Can't believe it. I watch that one every year on
Thanksgiving night after all the relatives have gone home.I need to
look for "Fitzwilly" that looks like a good movie to watch. Love TMC Channel.
The Dnews has finally caught on to postings lists of 10 to get readers and
attention. This one was voted on by citizens of the town of Obvious.
Christmas vacation belongs in the top ten. Can't disagree with It's a Wonderful
Life being #1 though. That movie is a classic.
You got most of my favorites: Christmas Story, It's A Wonderful Life and Mr.
Kruger's Christmas.The scene where Jimmy Stewart is kneeling at the
feet of the Savior of the world as the new-born king is in the manger brings
tears to my eyes every time. Can you imagine kneeling at the feet of the Son of
the Supreme Creator?As a side note I also like the old cartoon
version of The Grinch That Stole Christmas becaue I like the "Mr. Grinch" song.
I sing that one to my 7 yr old girl sometimes.Hope everyone has a
great holiday season!
The "Muppet's Christmas Carol" is hilarious. It should be on the list.
I agree National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation should be in the Top 5. My rank
would be #1, it's not Christmas without Cousin Edie emptying his septic tank in
the gutter, love it. We all have Crazy Relatives. A Christmas
Story would be way up there too. Home Alone is great, except when
it ends with the sappy and mushy family scene. I'm guilty of choking up
everytime. The robbers are hilarious. Bad Santa is funny, my
favorite part is when he's eating lunch in the mall on his break and he yells at
a lady wanting her son to talk to Santa. Any of The Simpsons
Christmas Episodes are hilarious, especially when Bart changes the words to
Jingle Bells, HA HA, Classic!Family Guy's Christmas Episode is
great.I love Mr. Krueger's Christmas, I guilty of crying like a
baby. LDS films know how to tug at the heart strings.
I also want to add A Charlie Brown Christmas, its not christmas without Snoopy
and the Peanuts.
Yeah what about Bad Santa or Badder Santa?
