Worst Christmas movies EVAH

Some of these I can’t agree with. Okay, I liked Home Alone. I did, shut up! And I liked Scrooged, too. And, cmon… It’s a Wonderful Life? As the worst one ever? Someone’s getting coal.

But man, look at all the crappy recent ones. Surviving Christmas. Christmas with the Cranks. Santa Clause 3. Deck the Halls. Unsupervised Children. Home Alone 2. Santa Claus – the one with Dudley Moore as an elf! Did the man have no dignity? And this was after Arthur! Inexcusable.

Most Christmas movies are preachy, treacly, and insulting nowadays, and they all seem to use the same music. And somehow, Christmas must be saved. I don’t mean to seem grouchy; it’s not the holiday that sucks butt, it’s the rancid Christmas movies! Check out Jingle All the Way from the Maxim list. Who thought that a movie about two guys fighting over a hot-ticket toy (Sinbad and Arnold Schwarzenegger) would be a GOOD idea? All it does is highlight the bad aspects of the holiday – greed, for one.

I do believe everyone should see National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Miracle on 34th Street, in any order. Those all manage to put on a happy, giving face while not seeming like a Great Lesson, a Holiday Wish to Grow on.
