Unlike the last article, the five movies below are not only films I have watched, but they are also my favorites!
#5 Babes In Toyland (1934)
Growing up without much in the way of technology, most home entertainments was TV, board games, records, and the radio.
Also only having one TV in the house with a large family did not offer a lot of choices when you are the youngest member.
Fortunately, my dad loved movies and we were able to sit around the tube and enjoy a lot of great films.
Babes In Toyland, aka. March of the Wooden Soldiers was one of those classic films I remember seeing as a child around Christmas. Between the Three Stooges, Laurel and Hardy, and Our Gang, I had access to a lot of classic comedy.
It’s a pretty short film, have a look at it if you have a chance. In fact, here it is:
#4 Grumpy Old Men (1993)
As I am slowly turning into one, I have grown to appreciate this more now then when it first came out.
Two, great actors, Ann-Margret, Daryl Hannah, and Burgess Merideth. Skip the sequel!
#3 Trading Places (1983)
Remember when Aykroyd and Murphy were funny, and Landis made films you wanted to watch? This is one of them!
#2 Home Alone (1990)
To me, this was the first time I had seen a live-action Loony Toons feature. One of the funniest movies ever, and a pretty good Christmas romp.
Although, I would pay to see this as well:
#1 Scrooged (1988)
Yep, this movie could be in the top 5 for several categories and has been in two lists here thus far.
Hands down my favorite Christmas comedy of all time.
The following are either movies I didn’t see or did not make the cut for the top five. I added The Ref, and Just Friends due to feedback in previous articles.
You may also notice some popular Christmas movies missing entirely but they are covered here.
The Ref (1994)
Christmas with the Kranks (2004)
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)
Just Friends (2005)
Fred Clause (2007)
