A rebellious Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) is sent to bed in the attic by his mother the night before the family's planned trip to Paris for Christmas. After the McCallisters leave for the airport without Kevin, he wakes up to find the house empty. He is relieved, thinking his wish to be an orphan had come true. But his enthusiasm wanes when he learns that Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern, two con guys, want to rob the McCallister house and that he is the only one who can stop them. Not only does this bring laughs during Christmas time but it also gives a lesson to learn to the kids at home.
Frank Cross, played by Bill Murray, is a tremendously successful television producer in this updated version of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." Unfortunately for him, the love of his life, Claire Phillips, has left him because of his ruthless ambition and grouchy personality. However, after firing an employee, Eliot Loudermilk, on Christmas Eve, Frank is visited by a series of ghosts who give him the opportunity to reevaluate his behavior and make amends for the wrongs he has committed in the past. It's a hilarious and innovative piece of work done to a very high standard. The best part is that it stars Bill Murray, who simply needs to raise an eyebrow to get laughs, making it ideal for each and every holiday season.
Are you looking for a little Christmas romance this year? Love Actually explores the lives of eight very different couples as they deal with their love lives in a variety of stories that are very loosely connected to one another. All of the stories take place in London, England, during the hectic month before Christmas. It is impossible not to be enchanted by the different plots that develop throughout the course of this well-loved movie.
Rather than telling them about Scrooge, why not show them a cartoon about him? Londoners are excited for Christmas, but miserly Ebenezer Scrooge (Jim Carrey) isn't having any of it. He even berates his loyal clerk and happy nephew for their positive outlook. The ghost of Scrooge's deceased business partner appears to him later and tells him that three ghosts will pay him a visit tonight. As part of their plan to soften Scrooge's heart, the ghosts take him on a tour of his life, past, present, and future.
Having a family-friendly Christmas cartoon to watch together is a must. On Mount Crumpet, the Grinch has built a home for himself and his loyal dog, Max. The most annoying thing about the holidays is when his Whoville neighbours go all out to celebrate Christmas. The Grinch learns there is only one way to find peace and quiet when the Whos decide to make Christmas even merrier and brighter than usual. The green grinch schemes with Max to steal Christmas by posing as Santa Claus and putting an end to the Whos' holiday spirit.
