"National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" may not be sugar and spice, but it's not trying to be. It's hilarious. Where's the putrid "Deck the Halls" on this list? And how can they dare put the original "Miracle on 34th Street" on there??

Boy the woman narrating is annoying as fuck. Both "Miracle" movies are really good. I never saw The Holiday or the Christmas horror flicks, but all those others really aren't Bad. I dreaded seeing Grinch, but actually liked it. *shrugs*

Whatever that movie with the kid from Home Improvement hitchhiking home in a Santa suit was has to be the worst Christmas movie I've ever seen.

HBO has Deck the Halls on a loop. That movie isn't just bad, it's an atrocity.

I enjoy CHRISTMAS VACATION a lot more than A CHRISTMAS STORY. It's probably the one Christmas movie I make sure to watch EVERY year.

That list should have had Kristmas with the Kranks on it. One of the worst movies I've seen in the last 10 years. Even thinking about it makes me gag.

The JB/JTT movie is I'll be Home for Christmas. Truly a crappy movie.

The list is invalid just for mentioning Christmas Vacation. I don't know anyone who doesn't like it.

It's Citizen Kane compared to:





(Though John Grisham's book was better--no lame botox humor--I still liked Christmas with the Kranks for harmless enterainment)

Agreed. The only ones on her list that I haven't seen are All I Want for Christmas and the 2 horror ones (which I wouldn't be in the mood for at Christmas time anyway.) The only one she mentioned that I can agree with is the Jim Carrey Grinch as I thought it was just plain boring.

The Holiday may be a little sappy and a chick flick, but it was enjoyable. And while Jingle All the Way may not be Arnie's best, I still like it. But then again, I like Christmas with the Kranks and Surviving Christmas (for some weird sentimental reasons that I can't explain.)

That's technically a Hanukkah movie, but point well taken.

I caught some of the Jim Carrey Grinch movie on ABC in HD the other night. That movie wasn't just bad -- it was unwatchable.
