I don't really like Elf either. I know this is really weird but I have gotten burnt out on a Christmas Story! I used to watch it all the time but now it is played so much on every channel during December it's too much! Still love it, just can't watch it for a while! :christmastree:
I think Bad Santa is hilarious, but I don't even classify it as a Christmas movie. It's just a dirty comedy that happens to center around a thief posing as a mall Santa. Also unlike several of you, I love Wil Ferrell. I think Elf is very entertaining. For the most part though, I agree that nothing says "Christmas" like the classics!! Agree on The Grinch though. Not a huge fan.
Yeah Mike, I would say "Its a Wonderful Life" is in my top 3 as well! I think it's because of the themes: doing good for others, not putting yourself first, having people in your life who truly care about you is more important than all the money in the world, and so on. These are traditional Christmas themes. That, and the fact that George Bailey's critical night is on Christmas Eve. I can understand not liking this movie. I was not that into it at first. Now that i've seen it at least 50 times, I can honestly say that I see something new in it everytime I watch it!
Well, I have to say that I do not care to watch.. Home Alone 3 and 4........ Really really annoying.... yuck...
