Yes, there are other movies besides A CHRISTMAS STORY.
Some are even good.
Of course, top of the list for me is
A CHRISTMAS STORY
Here are some (I’ve seen eight + parts of others):
ITS A WONDERFUL LIFE (Tears all around for the last scene).
MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET (Tears all around for the last scene).
A CHRISTMAS CAROL (The Dickens classic–an old b & w flick)
WHITE CHRISTMAS (Bing Crosby sings “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas.”)
A MERRY FRIGGIN’ CHRISTMAS (Touted as “black” and “sad,” and one of Robin William’s last flicks, I don’t think I wanna see it.)
HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS
ELF (funny moments)
HOME ALONE (in several parts. Part 2: it’s hilarious)
THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL
THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS (Okay once, but I find the visual style awkward/ugly)
THE SANTA CLAUSE (?)
HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS (?)
The above are some of those I’ve heard of or seen. The lst few days, Many more movies have shown up on the telly, each using the word “Christmas”–never heard of ’em. The only one my family and I watch anymore is
A CHRISTMAS STORY.
But one of my and my wife’s favorite movies, with a happy Christmas at the end is the delightful aggregation of love stories, illustrating many forms of love, and a year-around favorite, is
I find this”chick-flick” so funny and, in parts,
that, having watched it dozens of times over the years
(all year round)
my eyes, several times, every viewing, well up with tears.
