Thanks for reviving this very seasonal thread, Ramgoti, and welcome to the forum!

Hmmm...I agree that the Tim Allen films are charming, not favorites of mine but enjoyable nonetheless.

Me too. I was forced to watch them as a kid, so now I refuse. The family watches them, I go into another room.

Holiday Inn. Okay. Not really Christmas, since it covers a whole year, but I love it!

Ohhh, me too! I love Danny Kaye even though I've read that he treated his wife like dirt, flagrantly cheated on her through most of their marriage. A comic genius though...

Danny Kaye wasn't in Holiday Inn? Or am I misunderstanding the point?

Ooops, you're right, SG! I'm thinking of White Christmas which we watched a couple of nights ago.

Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire are in Holiday Inn. Silly me!

Oh, mine too, Dave! Drew and I both love that movie.

Talk about a nimble tongue....Danny Kaye certainly had one.

Youtube is blocked from here, but ya'll should look up my new favorite christmas song if you don't know it: Robert Earl Keene's Merry Christmas from the Family. It's on youtube along with some takeoffs.


Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk at our Christmas party
We were drinking champagne punch and homemade eggnog
Little sister brought her new boyfriend
He was a Mexican
We didn't know what to think of him until he sang
Feliz Navidad, Feliz Navidad

Brother Ken brought his kids with him
The three from his first wife Lynn
And the two identical twins from his second wife Mary Nell
Of course he brought his new wife Kay
Who talks all about AA
Chain smoking while the stereo plays Noel, Noel
The First Noel

Carve the Turkey
Turn the ball game on
It's margaritas when the eggnog's gone
Send somebody to the Quickpak Store
We need some ice and an extension chord
A can of bean dip and some Diet Rites
A box of Pampers, Marlboro Lights
Halelluja everybody say cheese
Merry Christmas from the family

Fred and Rita drove from Harlingen
I can't remember how I'm kin to them
But when they tried to plug their motor home in
They blew our Christmas lights
Cousin David knew just what went wrong
So we all waited out on our front lawn
He threw the breaker and the lights came on
And we sang Silent Night, Silent Night, Oh Holy Night

Carve the turkey turn the ball game on
It's Bloody Marys
Cause We All Want One!
Send somebody to the Stop 'N Go
We need some celery and a can of fake snow
A bag of lemons and some Diet Sprites
A box of Tampons, some Salem Lights
Halelluja, everybody say cheese
Merry Christmas from the Family

Feliz Navidad!

My favorites are two films from 1947:

It's A Wonderful Life - I've always liked Jimmy Stewart. Donna Reed and Lionel Barrymore were also outstanding, IMO.

Miracle on 34th Street - Edmund Gwenn was great in his role as Kris Kringle. John Payne, Maureen O'Hara, and Natalie Wood were great in their parts as well.

Perhaps the worst Christmas movie I ever saw was Santa With Muscles. The fact that Hulk Hogan starred as Santa says it all.

Kitty, those are all good movies. Gremlins isn't really horror, it's more comedy/horror/cute.
