    Me three! I saw the first 20 minutes or so last year. I thought it was dumb and changed the channel. And yes I usually like that kind of humour.

    Maybe I'm wrong in that definition but I've certainly heard my three sons talk about it enough to know it isn't my type of movie. I don't think The Santa Clause movie is stupid humor. To me, the epitome of stupid humor is almost anything lately done by Adam Sandler. I used to enjoy his movies but the last few I tried made me moan in disgust like Grown-ups and Jack & Jill. Yuck!

    FYI to all who have not seen A Christmas Story: there is a cameo by Mickey.

    Yes yes yes! I love A Muppet Family Christmas, but I haven't seen it in years. I wanted to buy it off of Amazon, but the reviews all said that major parts of the story were missing.:sad1:


    I love Christmas Vacation, A very Brady Christmas (who are any of you to judge me? ;) ), It's A Wonderful Life, A Muppet Christmas Carol, A Charlie Brown Christmas, It's Christmas again Charlie Brown, and Love Actually. I am also likely in the strong minority as I absolutely cannot stand A Christmas Story.

    It's a Wonderful Life
    A Christmas Carol (all of them, but especially the Alastair Sim one and the Patrick Stewart one)
    The Family Stone
    Miracle on 34th Street (Natalie Wood)
    White Christmas
    Christmas Vacation
    The Santa Clause

    I also love many of the ones on the Hallmark Channel (though some of them are downright cheezy). If anyone's interested, there's a new Hallmark Hall of Fame movie on December 7th that looked Christmassy from the promo I saw.

    I love the obvious ones (Christmas Vacation, etc), but my guilty pleasure every year is Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus, and the sequel, Meet the Santas. Really corny, but I have to watch them at least once!

    1. A Christmas Carol (original, followed by George C. Scott version and then the Patrick Stewart version)
    2. It's A Wonderful Life
    3. White Christmas
    4. Home Alone
    5. The Santa Clause

    The top 3 really are the top 3 and the others I will watch and do still enjoy, but they are not a must see at holiday time. :thumbsup2

    I love the Scrooged movies. They've been re-done like a million times, but I think that's part of my attraction. You can take the same story, change it slightly and make it new each time. My favorite one is the one from the 1988 with Bill Murray.

    I also like the Santa Clause and the, the, the, THE GRINCH!
