Christmas Comedy Movies for the Family

There are some very funny Christmas films that are perfect for children and adults with comedy for both. These are great films with Christmas themed fun and jokes!

Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas

Even under the very green and very furry make-up of the Grinch, you can still see Jim Carrey's expressive facial contortions as he plays the grouchy Dr. Seuss character with a heart that is "two sizes too small." This Christmas comedy has a perfect balance of comedy, zany high jinks, visually stunning and a lovely Christmas story. For ages 5 years old and up, this is a movie that kids and adults love!


This is a genuinely hilarious movie, about Buddy (Will Ferrell), who from a young age has always thought he was an elf, until one day he finds out that he is actually a human. On a quest to find his real dad in New York, he manages to get into all sorts of ridiculous situations, as he tries to fit in this new unfamiliar world. This is just so funny, silly and very enjoyable!

The Nightmare Before Christmas

A beautiful and magical animated gothic musical movie from Tim Burton, this is a lovely fairy tale of the pumpkin king, Halloween Jack Skellington, who stumbles across a new and exciting place called Christmas Town.

British Christmas Comedy Movies - New on DVD 2010

A British Christmas comedy film of the very funny trials and tribulations of a teacher, (played by Martin Freeman) as he attempts to put together the school Nativity play! A great family British Christmas film.


There aren't many British comedy Christmas movies for the family, but this one is a heart-warming film great for all the family and new out on DVD for Christmas 2010!
