Fun Christmas Flicks

I have been getting some flack for dissing It's a Wonderful Life, so to prove I am no Christmas grinch and in the spirit of the season, here are what I consider to be(in no particular order) the top ten Christmas movies of all time.

Miracle on 34th St. (1947 version)
-- My eyes always tear up when they find the cane in the house.

The Bishop’s Wife (1947 version)
-- Angel Cary Grant lusts after Loretta Young.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
- Most realistic depiction of Christmas ever filmed.

A Christmas Story

-- What Kid doesn't want a BB gun for Christmas?

The Santa Clause
-- Best movie ever filmed in Oakville

Elf
-Shows that even innocence can be funny

Home Alone
-- Worth watching just to see John Candy

Babes in Toyland
-- Great scene with marching toy soldiers

Die Hard
-- Merry Christmas mother*****

Chronicles of Narnia
-- Not really a Christmas movie, but Santa Claus does show up to pass out deadly weapons to the children.

I think you mean "flak."

According to the online dictionary, "flack" is also an acceptable spelling.

No, it's "flak," if you mean criticism. "Flack" is a press agent, etc. If we are going to dumb down, then we accept things that are spelled incorrectly, and if we accept them enough, they become accepted. But that doesn't mean they should be.
