Frozen as the Xmas day movie? Why?

Seriously. Hasn't everyone who wants to see it seen it already? Aren't some of us poor buggers stuck watching it daily?

Why the heck have they spent a load of money to show it on Xmas day? I get why the Xmas movie was a big deal in the eighties, but now? Can't they break with tradition and come up with some original programming instead?

Christmas tv is crap. Some good films are on after 11pm, too late for me.

It won't have cost a lot of money.

Let it go op, the kids love it

Why not?

I haven't seen it. Not everyone has kids, or kids of that age and such films are all part of the Christmas round, always have been.

Not everyone watches so much TV that they will have seen all films. Why not make your own tradition, one that doesn't involve parking yourselves and kids in front of the TV? smile

Let it go.

Surely the point of Christmas movies is it's one people watch over and over?

I imagine because not many people watch tv Christmas Day so they just stuck any old thing on. Its a film for kids isn't it?

I haven't seen it, and quite fancy it tbh. I agree with pp you really need to let it go.

Get sky, then you can watch zootropolis!

Artandco Sat 17-Dec-16 18:07:03

Also Christmas films used to always be repeats ie chitty bang bang every year as a child

Why do you care about the Christmas Day movie?.... ok, in the 80s it was a bigger deal as that was the only movie available... now with dvds, Netflix, 100 of channels, recorded tv, I don't get the issue. Also, what about everything else non screen related that you could do...

Happy days, The family all sat together waiting for the big movie. Things are a little different now.

Rather than watch TV over Christmas do you want to build a snowman?

MsPavlichenko Sat 17-Dec-16 18:09:49

My DC are grown up now so haven't seen it. I am really looking forward to it, as are DC, and my friends in similar situations!

amispartacus Sat 17-Dec-16 18:15:04

TBH - I am sure most people will have seen any Christmas movie on BBC or ITV now.

Let it go

Why would you be sitting down to a movie on xmas day? Won't you be finishing each others... (turkey) sandwiches? wink

Sparklingbrook Sat 17-Dec-16 18:18:19

I have never seen it but it looks annoying.

But we have Amazon Prime and a whole heap of DVDs so we will manage somehow over Christmas.

Hulababy Sat 17-Dec-16 18:21:23

Im not sure the point of the mid afternoon Christmas Day film is to be one no one is likely to have seen. Its normally a family film that did well in the past few years, so Frozen, to me, seems to fit the bill.

Hasn't everyone who wants to see it seen it already?

Thats the case for any popular film.

Why would you be sitting down to a movie on xmas day?

Well, because everyone has different things they like to do on Christmas Day. Not everyone spends the day engaged in full on huge family round the table cooking or eating.

chipsandpeas Sat 17-Dec-16 18:22:44

not everyone has sky, netflix etc so for those who only have freeview prob wont have seen it

BurnTheBlackSuit Sat 17-Dec-16 18:24:53

We're recording it. But I don't actually care what they put on on Christmas Day really as I am not a fan of the tv on Christmas Day- I'd much rather spend it eating, talking, opening presents and playing games.

New Years Eve on the other hand.. why can't they put something decent on then so us boring people who don't go out can watch something original!

Lorelei76 Sat 17-Dec-16 18:25:36

I dint have sky etc so only just saw it this summer, borrowed the DVD.
Mum and I are looking forward to it! She hasn't seen it at all.
I do love Olav and his summer song.

That's the only Christmas Day film that counts.

Although, they could have put Deadpool on...
