It’s that time of year again and watching those Christmas themed TV shows and movies is inevitable. But here are some suggestions to make your holiday a little more enjoyable.
- A Christmas Story – This movie has so many funny scenes. I particularly like scene where Ralph’s father gets the leg lamp(I want one of those!). The narration by the “Adult” Ralph is also very hilarious.
Mother: All right. Now, are you ready to tell me where you heard that word?
Adult Ralph narrating: Now, I had heard that word at least ten times a day from my old man. He worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium; a master. But, I chickened out and said the first name that came to mind.
- National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – One of my favorite Chevey Chase movies. One of the funniest scenes in the movie is where Clark Griswald goes into a rant after not receiving an expected bonus from his boss. Here is that wonderful rant:
Hey! If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me. I have one. I’d like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight.
I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a
bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped,
worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is!
Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where’s the Tylenol?
- Nightmare Before Christmas – A very fun animated movie by Tim Burton. I really enjoyed the style of animation and the original and interesting story. The movie is about the mayor of Halloween, Jack, taking over Christmas from Santa.
Jack Skellington: Sally! I need your help most of all.
Sally: You certainly do, Jack. I’ve had the most horrible vision!
Jack Skellington: That’s wonderful!
Yeah, I know it is only a list of 3 movies, but I need to get some sleep.
