Top 5 Christmas Movies That We're Watching Every Year
Top 5 Christmas Movies Starting at 5!!
We all have our specific holiday movies that we watch every year waiting for the same hilarious scene to come around as we shout in laughter. They help bring the family and friends together during this cold season and it's also known to relieve a bit of stress. So here are my top five movies..
Number 5: Home Alone 3
Kid Saves Neighborhood
Home Alone 3 does not get enough credit in my opinion. Alex Pruitt (Alex D. Linz) plays a nine year old boy that stays at home sick from school due to the chicken pox. His dad (Kevin Kilner) travels for work so he is in and out of the picture. His mom (Haviland Morris) tries her best to stay home with her son while he is sick, however, she gets called into work as well. What is a little boy to do with his older brother (Seth Smith) and sister (Scarlett Johansson) at school all day? Alex is given a toy car to play with by an older grumpy lady in the neighborhood because she realizes her bags were mixed up. Low and behold there was a government chip in the toy car and Alex calls the government.
Can you imagine taking on the town criminal as a child? Booby trapping your house and potentially ruining your home, and others, to save yourself. Who is paying for all this destruction! Hahaha!
Alex realizes there are 'bad guys' after this chip when he notices a burglar in his neighbor's home by using his telescope. Alex also sees his friend "Johnny Allen's" dog running with a random lady in the neighborhood. After two attempts of calling the police and trying to get the 'bad guys' captured no one believes him. Alex takes it upon himself to protect the family and sets traps around the house. It's all fun and games until the games begin and each burglar is caught by the cops and the FBI! Woohoo for Alex!
Number 4: Christmas With The Kranks
Skip Christmas.....Until Last Minute
Luther Krank (Time Allen) and Nora Krank (Jamie Lee Curtis) set their sights on skipping Christmas to go on a cruise instead. All of their friends are confused at this point; no tree, no Christmas calendar, no Christmas Eve party? The Kranks keep their mind focused on the cruise however, everything is telling them this is wrong. The boys scouts tried to sell them a tree and Luther broke their hearts by not buying a tree. Vic Frohmeyer (Dan Aykroyd) "lives and breathes" for the neighborhood as he tries his hardest to push the Kranks to decorate and celebrate the holiday. All until Christmas Eve, their daughter (Julie Gonzalo) calls and says she's coming home for Christmas. The Kranks must apologize to everyone and beg for help in decorating and creating the perfect holiday party for their daughter who must not know they were going to skip Christmas.
Number 3: This Christmas
Merry Christmas and Happy Drama!
During the holidays, some people are happy, especially with handsome men and lovely ladies around. However the Whitfield Family has secrets coming out of the shadow low blows, sibling rivalry, and plans sing after not seeing each other for years.
I personally love Christmas but it can be overwhelming...and what family doesn't have drama? Just like this family, forgive and work on what needs to be fixed one step at a time.
Number 2: National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Not So Perfect Christmas
I'm sure we all know Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase). Family man, hard working, and loves his wife. This is the man that we all love in the dramatic comedy "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation!" Now my family is not as goofy when it comes to finding a tree, putting up the lights, but when my cousins come to town some weird things do happen.
This movie is great for the family with great laughs and will probably give some ideas for the holidays as well.
Number 1: I'll Be Home For Christmas (1998)
Come Home For What?
I'm sure we all remember our handsome 90s hunk Johnathan Taylor Thomas. We all fell in love with him when he played Randy Taylor on Home Improvement and our young cub Simba in the Disney film The Lion King.
Jake (Johnathan Taylor Thomas) shined a light on a problem for most young adults and children around the holidays. A missing parent. He does his best to avoid going home and spending time with his boo Allie (Jessica Biel) until his dad (Gary Cole) persuades him with a Porsche. Jake has to go through challenges to find his way home and keep Allie happy. Like most of us, the holidays might be difficult because it's not so "family - oriented" like the commercials.
This movie helps us understand life better, to accept the happiness as it comes, and be grateful for the family we do have.
