It’s British, It’s about Christmas…what’s not to love. An all-star cast and the writing of Richard Curtis make this brilliant. I love Bill Nighy in this flick, he is my spirit animal if I were an aging rock star who cusses like the rainbow. This movie is a tradition this time of year.
The movie where we learned about electric sex and how a Red Rider will shoot your eye out. Not to mention the triple-dog-dare. This movie is about the universal angst a child has when they really want something for Christmas and will do whatever it takes to get it.
This is one of the greatest Christmas movies ever.
Holiday movies are like friends you see once a year. Of course you don’t have to see them just during the holidays but they are special that way. There are great characters and places that make the season more colorful.
Our favorites are
Meet Me In St. Louis
Disney’s The Christmas Carol
A Christmas Story
The Nativity Story
A Charlie Brown Christmas
The Muppet Christmas Carol
Hallmark Christmas Movies
It’s A Wonderful Life
The Polar Express
The Santa Clause Movies
And there are more. Without these movies its just not the same.
Will Ferrell is fantastic in this story of a man named Buddy who was raised from infancy in the North Pole by elves who work in Santa’s workshop. He finds his real dad in New York City and adventures ensue with his new found brother. He also finds love with a department store worker named Jovie. Buddy helps restore the Christmas spirit. We love this movie, there is some memorable dialogue that we love to quote all the way through.
