I used to live in the town where they filmed the Santa Clause, a few years after they filmed it smile

Home Alone is my all time fave, and HA 2 is good for a sequel.

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation is the funniest by far. I went to see Elf at the cinema and the bit when santas sleigh goes up was amazing on the big screen it made us cry.

YYY to all the above and-

Christmas with the Kranks
Deck The Halls (Love Danny De Vito)
A Hobo's Christmas (with Mickey Rooney)
Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium

The Grinch
The Holiday

I like:-

Santa Claus the Movie
Nativity 1 and 2
Jingle All the Way
Authur Christmas

I really don't see the appeal of Elf, but I'm clearly in the minority...

Also the first Alvin and the Chipmunks is a bit Christmassy. I quite like that.

We have a lot of those already mentioned between DVD and DVD recording (am under threats of painful death from dd - 8 - if I ever delete either Home Alone 1 or 2 from the box!).
Includes Polar Express
the Santa Clause 1-4
And loads more

This year, I am hoping to find either on netflix or DVD the Grinch and the Nightmare before Christmas.

Four Christmases with Vince Vaughan had some v comedy moments

The snowman, both the lovely original and the show on stage. And Raymond Briggs Father Christmas too. The nutcracker, and Disney a Christmas carol from a few years ago. Merry Madagascar though short is good fun too I think smile

Santa Claus the movie, the one with Dudley Moore. Its one of my sons favorites, he's 6.

It has to be Elf.

It's funny and sweet without being too schmaltzy.

Hassled Tue 05-Nov-13 20:03:56

Home Alone 1 & 2. Always, always makes me laugh and have good Christmassy vibes.
