    What are the must watch Holiday movies at your house this time of year?
    I have a few standards which are White Christmas and Christmas vacation. But one of my favorites that is sneaky good is not a highly rated movie called Trapped in Paradise. What a great cast Nicolas Cage, Jon luvetz and Dana Carvey.

    The ones mentioned, I will toss in Christmas with the Kranks. Not a 'great' movie, it's fun and family-friendly, entertaining. Based on the Grisham short story "Skipping Christmas".

    The real question is which one of the 876 versions of Grinch is tops?

    Seriously, did we really need another one of these?

    Every Christmas season we go to a family movie; this year, the kids want to see the next Grinch. Me, I want to kill myself at the thought.

    I came here to post that if this movie wasn’t on top of everyone’s list as a Christmas Family classic then you all needed to reevaluate some things

    The list that @Miss Lily posted, plus...

    Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!
    Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
    Santa Claus is Coming to Town
    Frosty the Snowman
    The Little Drummer Boy
    Nestor, the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey

    There used to be an animated Christmas Carol that was good.

    And, after having relatives with cable...Star Wars. The first three.

    This year has been hectic enough that I'll probably go hide and hammer out the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    I like some of the hallmark movies. There are 3-4 every year that are truly entertaining.

    Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol - Unfortunately never to be seen again. Jim Backus' estate has seen to that.

    The one I'm thinking of didn't have Mr. Magoo in it - it was a "realistic" animated version of the "real deal" Christmas Carol, with Tiny Tim and all the ghosts.

    Here we go:

    I enjoy the Jim Carey Grinch, I know he’s a POS but I find it funny.

    How it should be. Who cares if the dude sucks, if it's good then enjoy the danged movie. "Oh no, in his personal life he doesnt like guns/makes jokes about guns!"
    If we only watched or listened to Pro2A folks then it'd be real danged limited entertainment.
