Nothing beats a good Christmas movie and we love a couple of these bad boys so much we’ve been known to watch them in July…
Our favourites (in no particular order) are:
‘Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal’
While this film raises some valid questions – mainly for social services – twenty-five years on it’s still a belter.
‘Wish in one hand, sh*t in the other and see which one fills up first.’
Bernie Mac, political incorrectness in abundance, sandwiches and Billy Bob Thornton.
We’re more than a little excited for the sequel next year.
‘Just because it’s Christmas…’
And at Christmas you always tell the truth. The cuteness, the clichés- it’s all good but what we love most, actually, is Liam Neeson. And the soundtrack.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
‘Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere, leave you for dead?’
Chevy Chase at his finest. If highbrow arts are your thing then forget it but if slapstick tickles your fancy Yule crack up.
‘Max Help me.…. I’m FEELING.’
Back when Taylor Momsen was fresh-faced and adorable, Dr. Seuss’ taught us all a lesson about the value of Christmas, via a green and hairy Jim Carey.
‘Buddy the elf, what’s your favourite colour?’
What would December be like if Will Ferrel hadn’t travelled through the seven levels of the candy cane forest past the sea of twirly-swirly gumdrops? Rubbish, the answer is rubbish.
