    Love Actually is a pretty perfect little movie too. I just die for Colin Firth every.time.I.see.it. Not only is he handsome and a terrific actor... but that little vignette (the reverse O'Henry) is perfection in storytelling.

    I kinda love that. Same as "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington"--the good guy only wins in the end by a miracle, not because the corrupt system has actually changed. It's not a everybody's-heart-grew-ten-sizes-that-day kind of ending, it's a "hey, people will continue to be horrible, but stay optimistic" one. And I like the realism of that. (:

    Love everything about it. Especially when the Haynes sisters decide to pick Wallace and Davis' brains for advice on "the act."

    Um, learn a second song? Every single time we see "the act" you're just singing "Sisters."

    Or the fact Betty runs away from Bob and he follows her and goes to see her sing... only the only 2 songs she has prepped is one that EXACTLY describes her love life and its problems OR Blue Skies-- which is a song from Bob's musical

    The extras in the show ONLY appear for "rehearsals" and where the heck are these people all the rest of the time?

    And what on EARTH is this musical they're going to perform going to look like? What on earth is the plot? How do "Minstrel show" "Mandy" and "Choreography" fit into ANY POSSIBLE NARRATIVE together?

    God, I just adore this movie. It's well worth $6.60 or $8.80.
    I love Vera Ellen and her tap dancing. My daughter always says "that can't be real" when she opens with that crazy start to Choreography. One of my older sisters would wear her hair in a pony tail like the Martha Graham dancers for about a week every time we watched White Christmas....I also love how Alaska was "out of country' in one of the lines.

    I always loved her too. Unfortunately, during her career she suffered a lifetime battle with anorexia; long before it was even recognized as a disease. Sort of puts a different spin on her unbelievably thin bod.

    Oh, my, you just reminded me of one of my favorite Christmas traditions of my childhood, watching the O Henry anthology with my parents every Christmas: The Ransom of Red Chief, The Last Leaf, The Cop and the Anthem, and The Gift of the Magi.
    I also loved A Child's Christmas in Wales and wish they would show it again.

    For those of you who LOVE (as I do) or have never seen the Alistair Sim version of "A Christmas Carol", the Turner Classic Movies channel will be showing it tonight at 9:30 p.m. EST.

    Me too!! I like the pair who are porn movie body doubles also. I tried to rent it from the library and it's out : (

    Also enjoy The Lion in Winter-not really a typical Christmas movie but takes place at that time. Oh, and About a Boy, with a small Christmas connection.

    Totally forgot one of my all time favorite movies, Miracle on 34th Street, the original.

    1. White Christmas. I love this movie so much I've been known to sneak in a Christmas in July viewing.
    2. Miracle on 34th St (the original 1947 version)
    3. The Santa Clause

    I don't care much for A Christmas Carol in any version.

    If you ask me, I will tell you that I don't like A Christmas Story. I will continue to insist that this is true even as I watch it on multiple repeats. (I don't like South Park, either. )

    1. Miracle on 34th (the old one)
    2. The Bells of St Mary's
    3. Christmas Vacation :-)
    4. It's a wonderful life

    I'll admit to not loving A Christmas Story...not sure why though, because Christmas Vacation makes me laugh.

    If there's a more glamorous moment than Betty telling Bob where to stuff it in those crystal gloves in "Love, You Didn't do Right by Me"-- I don't know it. I used to fantasize about wearing that outfit and singing that song.

    Christmas Vacation.

    "Is Rusty still in the Navy?"
    I find that a ducks opinion of me is very much influenced over whether or not I have bread. Ducks love bread but they do not have the capability to buy a loaf. Thats the biggest joke on the duck ever.

    Not to mention "Don't throw me down Clark." My husband loves saying this to me as I make my way across slippery icy surfaces like a crippled snail.

    I love "Love Actually" at all times of year but especially at Christmas.

    We love "Christmas Story" - it's a movie from Finland about how a little boy named Nikolas became Santa Claus. I think my husband found it in a bargain movie bin somewhere. I wish more people knew about this movie - it is beautiful and sweet and we watch it every year. We took it with us last year when we visited family and now everyone (adults and kids!) loves it too.

    And it's not a Christmas movie really, but I love "Mame" and the song "We Need a Little Christmas" so I'm counting that too. Bonus points because it has foxhunting scenes.
