|List of the Best Christmas Movies of All Time|
The Bishop's Wife (1947) - Who doesn't like Cary Grant as an angel? Features a great movie quote: "The only people who grow old were born old to begin with".
Batman Returns (1992) - The magic of Tim Burton, the grotesqueness of Danny DeVito and the cat suit of Michelle Pfeiffer... Ooo la la.
Home Alone (1990) - The first one, not the sequels! A really good family film for the holidays, except there's no family! Funny gags, hilarious antics and truly feel-good moments as well.
A Christmas Carol (1938) - The best version of the well-worn Dickens literary classic. At a mere 70 minutes in runtime, it's a short but sweet classic. Beautiful set designs and powerful acting performances put this one of the must-see holiday film list.
The Santa Clause (1994) - Features one of Tim Allen's few successful big screen performances. So full of heart and charm it's becoming a holiday season staple.
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989) - Gotta love the holidays with the Griswalds. Watching Clark's ineptitude makes us all feel a little better ourselves.
Joyeux Noel (Merry Christmas) (2005) - The true story of how the French and Scottish soldiers of World War I left their trenches and celebrated the holiday with their enemies, the Germans. A bit more serious than most listed here, but none is more heart warming and hopeful.
Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus (1991 - TV) - Richard Thomas, Ed Asner and Charles Bronson star in this cheerful and uplifting version of the 1974 original. Will challenge you to look at things a little differently.
Holiday Inn (1942) - Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire bring this oldie-but-goodie to life. Bing Crosby does Christmas so well! Crescendoes to the magnificent debut of "White Christmas".
