Home Alone (1990)
Home Alone. -Jackijack88
This is the top answer, an answer so strong, it ends in a full stop. No explanation needed. Right on.
Home Alone 2 (1992)
Also, Home Alone 2. Marv getting hit in the face with bricks never gets old. -whalepopcorn
Are you surprised? I’m not! Home Alone 2 is just Home Alone with the volume, and the ridiculousness, turned way up!
It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
It’s my favorite. Make my kids watch it with me every year. Always get teary eyed at the end. -scyardman
It’s true! My partner and I recently watched it together, fully intending to make fun of it. We BOTH ended up in tears by the end.
The Muppets Christmas Carol (1992)
Muppets Chrismas Carol -goodeone
Many have adapted Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, but few have done it as perfectly as the Muppets. There, I said it, and I have no regrets.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation -Joe434
While I’m not partial to the particular brand of comedy in this one, I absolutely have to recognize the timelessness of it and the popularity with… pretty much everyone but me!
Jingle All the Way (1996)
No ones said Jingle All The Way? Classic! “It’s turbo time!” -[deleted]
All I have to say is, “PUT THE COOKIE DOWN!”
Scrooged, with Bill Murray. Definitely my favorite adaptation of A Christmas Carol, mainly due to the fact that Bill Murray. -distephano87
I don’t think I’ve ever seen it; I’ll have to add this one to my list!
A Christmas Story (1983)
A Christmas Story. THE Christmas movie of my generation.
Reddit user SporcleAdmin commented back, “I only watch this movie on Christmas Eve. But when I watch it, I watch it 7 times in one day.” And I. Felt. That.
The Santa Clause (1994)
I am ashamed at myself that I forgot about this one. -g3mm4
TOPO GIGIO! (If you know, you know.)
Die Hard (1988)
Die Hard -darthted
Ah, yes, Die Hard. Many a heated college conversation has been had about whether or not it is a Christmas movie. It is. You’re welcome.
I love Elf personally -NEOOMGGeeWhiz
Others comment about how utterly quoatable it is. I’m going to have to agree with them, otherwise I’d “sit upon a throne of lies!”
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964)
The Rankin Bass stop-motion animation classics, especially: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer -qcquark
I was wondering when we were gonna get to the good ol’ cheesy stuff!
A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
A Charlie Brown Christmas -Lucius_Funk
I was surprised it wasn’t at the top of the list! I watch this one every single year on Christmas Eve over Skype with my long-distance partner. When they start singing at the end, I cry WITHOUT FAIL.
