In one of those most recent surveys of what people say are the five best Christmas movies ever, NOT ONE of my absolute favorites made the cut!! Now, while I may enjoy some like “Miracle On 34th Street” A Christmas Carol”, “Home Alone” “Christmas Story” or “It’s A Wonderful Life” as being cool-yule flicks, there are SOME movies that I REALLY try not to miss during the holidays..they include:
-“”The Grinch” (Jim Carrey, Taylor Momson)The adaptation of the cartoon classic still makes me belly-laugh uncontrollably! Tacky in spots, I know, but Carrey’s ad-libs are priceless!
-“White Christmas”. How did this MONUMENTAL CLASSIC not make their list!! Bing, Danny Kaye, and cool song and dance that doesn’t suck!
-“Christmas Vacation”. My ALL time favorite!! Griswold mania at its best! Squirrel in the tree and Cousin Eddie and one killer line after another. The ONE I desperately try not to miss.
So I may not be Siskel or Ebert, but after all the shopping, wrapping, decorating, cards, and all of the stuff that I tackle during the season, I sooo look forward to a nice, stiff beverage and a “Randyll Christmas Classic”, and my holiday season seems complete!
