We posted this a while back, but thought you might enjoy it again. Hey you've seen It's a Wonderful Life a few times, right? This post lists some films that the holiday movie lover can sneak past the co-habitants with seasonal burnout. Speaking of bah humbug, I was previewing a new gadget and the tech told me that its bonus feature is that you can text and watch a show at the same time. "What if you disagree with that in principle?" I asked. To his credit, he didnt' back away slowly. One of the great joys of the season is going out and catching the new releases. Let's leave our holiday lights on the tree and out of the theatres. Please turn off your smart devices. Okay, that's enough grinch for now. Happy Holidays Everyone!
You can't get enough of the holiday's but your family is fed up...Try these non-Christmas movies with snowy Decembers and holiday settings...
The Holiday: Two couples, a house exchange, and unrequited love. Kate Winslet, Jack Black, Cameron Diaz and Jude Law star.
Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason starring Renee Zellweger ends in the wintry English countryside, especially timely since there's actually been snow there in recent Decembers.
Love, Actually a huge cast of British actors star in this charming look at relationships from multiple perspectives. Hugh Grant stars as the British Prime Minister. If you're not a fan, don't worry, this is a "vignettes" film.
Trading Places: For those who prefer a belly laugh, Dan Ackroyd and Eddy Murphy in their 1980s heyday star, and they are great together. Corporate sabotage forces Ackroyd's character out of his executive role and homeless Murphy into the big kahuna position.
Your family won't notice the holiday themes...Besides, Ukrainian Christmas is not until the 6th!
