Everyone has their favourite Christmas movie. That film that is unabashed in it's sentimentality, goodwill and cheer. A movie that if you watched it any other time of the year it just not seem right! I have put together a list of 5 such movies but please feel free to add your own suggestions in the comment box below of via facebook or twitter.
Richard Donner's modern take on this classic Christmas tale has Bill Murray to thank for elevating it to a higher level as he is in top form in this Christmas classic proveing that with the right premise he can make any film look great!. Always worth repeated viewing!
This timeless yuletide classic from Chris Columbus is a fun filled fiesta of family fun as we follow the hapless antics of Harry and Marv as they are constantly twarted by the exceptional Macauley Culkin. Never gets old!!
This seasonal hit sees Will Ferrell abandon his usual gross out humour for a performance filled with charm and hilarity in a film that proved a big hit with all members of the family and is a frequent resident on audiences favourite Christmas movies. Highly entertaining!
2. Love Actually
So sweet it may give you diabetes and cynics have critized it for this but leave the cynicism to one side and you have a collection of sweet and funny tales brought together in the undeniable style of Richard Curtis. This all star cast seems to be really having fun with the script and it shows. Guaranteed to bring out a smile in its audience around Christmas time!
There is a reason that this film resonates over 70 years after it's initial release. The Christmas movie that laid the path for all that followed. This Frank Capra directed classic tale starring James Stewart is simply a must watch every Christmas.
