There are so many great Holiday movies out there to watch, and every year there seems to be more and more movies out there. The list of my favorites, however, has pretty much stayed the same. The old movies never seem to lose their appeal, no matter how out-dated the clothes and language, they remain classics. A list, and review, of my favorite holiday movies.
The Ref, a 1994 comedy starring Denis Leary, Kevin Spacey, and Judy Davis. This is a hilarious comedy about a feuding married couple on the outs who get taken hostage by a cat-burglar who is on the run from the local police. Denis Leary plays the cat-burglar who takes Kevin Spacey and Judy Davis hostage, but ends up helping them fix their own family problems, and, in-turn, the family helps set him free. It is a really funny movie. The only thing I advise to be careful of is the language. There is a lot of bad language, so this is not a family-friendly film! Otherwise, it’s funny as all hell with a holiday twist.
Home Alone, the original 1990 movie starring Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, and Daniel Stern. This old holiday classic is about a young boy who is accidently left at home when his whole family goes to France for Christmas vacation. The boy, Culkin, also has to face dim-witted criminals who are trying to burglarize his home. There are many crazy events but this movie is not only family-friendly, but it is a fun classic.
Die Hard, the first and the best of the movie trilogy. Made in 1988, this Bruce Willis action movie is packed with lots of actions, humor, and twists. Although it does possess some bad language and there is mild violence, the action is high and it takes place on Christmas Eve. This is a fun couple movie and it’s a classic. A young Bruce Willis and a young Alan Rickman make this movie a delight.
