Christmas movies. We could look at the best and worst of these. It’s surely got to be more upbeat than another Christmas talking about covid, government, shopping or even the weather!
Whilst ironing, I watched Christmas in Vienna one week and Christmas in Yorkshire last weekend. Have you seen them? There seems to be a very similar plot and I still cried at the end! Softy!
Nativity, now that’s a different story. All primary school teachers must have been dreading the annual production after that film came out! It’s far-fetched, absolutely hilarious and throws health and safety out of the window! Of course, there is a love story wound into it, but it’s definitely worth a watch.
It’s a Wonderful Life is one of the top films every Christmas. I’m 50:50 on that. Holiday Inn. White Christmas. Love Actually. The Holiday. Muppets Christmas Carol. Elf, which I haven’t seen, hit the top spot in the Saturday Times’ review. Nor have I watched The Grinch who Stole Christmas.
If you can find it, The Mousehole Cat, set in Mousehole, Cornwall, is based on a true story. The book is good too. Aimed at children but enjoyed by adults too.
What are your favourites?
We can return to bowls tomorrow!
How could I miss Home Alone off the list?! Thought the first one was best and good to go on the watch again list.
Planes, Trains & Automobiles too.
Mr Bean’s Christmas was just plain silly until I watched it a second time after a glass of wine, then it was side-splittingly hilarious! Might not be so funny on a third watch!
I have to admit I’ve never been a film fan but I know my daughter will want to watch Elf when we visit – I thought it was punishment – still I know there will be other programmes to make us laugh like Only Fools & Horses !! Big game on Saturday for the girls – let’s hope we can win another round – we have a very good group of ladies at CP so on and upwards !!
I think Miracle on 34th Street is worth an honourable mention! I’m +ve for It’s a Wonderful Life but -ve for Elf.
