Home Alone (the first one is the best!)
I laughed so hard when Kevin put the tarantula on that burglar's face, my stomach was hurting and my eyes were watering. Now my eyes water when I hear of his addiction to herion
It's a Wonderful Life is one of the best movies any time of year. The acts of humility by George Bailey were amazing. Frank Capra was brilliant; Mr. Smith Goes to Washington showed that Capra knew what it means to be an American and It's a Wonderful Life illustrated how to be human. What a great cast, too!
But now I'm curious. I would love to see George C. Scott as Scrooge.
George C. Scott did a wonderful job as Scrooge.
Best Holiday films:
It's a Wonderful Life
White Christmas (yes corny, but I love it)
Miracle on 34th St (orig.)
A Muppet Christmas Carol (with Michael Caine)
A Christmas Carol (George C. Scott version)
The Family Man (with Nick Cage, a kind of It's a Wonderful Life in reverse)
Also a great TV movie from about 20 years ago: "Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus" with Richard Thomas and Charles Bronson. It's the story of Virginia and her letter to the NY Sun. Bronson plays Frank Church the writer who answers the famous letter (of course, he does punch out a jerk in one scene, naturally). Ture story with some fictional fluff added. Really good. We taped in when it first aired. Don't think it's on DVD yet. If you find it, get it.
A Christmas Story
The Santa Clause (1st one)
A Charlie Brown Christmas
