My Top 5 Christmas Films You Need To Watch

I spoke about how much I love Christmas films in my ‘9 Things I Love About Christmas’ post, but I thought I’d delve a bit deeper and share my top five (in no particular order).

Christmas Films

1) The Muppets Christmas Carol

(1992. Michael Caine, Dave Goelz)

I know pretty much every single word of every single song in this film. I love The Muppets, and that love transfers into anything that features them. The Muppets Christmas Carol is a funny take on the classic and it’s well worth a watch for the young and the old.


2) The Grinch

(2000. Jim Carrey, Taylor Momsen)

I’m a big fan of Jim Carrey, and The Grinch is one of my favourite characters that he plays of all time. Cindy-Lou’s song sucks bum, but the rest is heart-warming whilst being hilarious and it gets me in the Christmas mood ever year.

3) Elf

(2003. Will Ferrell, James Caan)

SANTA. I KNOW HIM. It’s my favourite time of year to quote this film on multiple occasions. Will Ferrell is brilliant and if you haven’t seen this one you need to, it’s a more ‘adult’ Christmas film with some adult humour.

This isn’t part of the film. It just made me laugh.

4) The Family Man

(2000. Stars Nicholas Cage, Téa Leoni)

An oldie but a goodie in my opinion. I love this film because it’s not particularly funny, but it hits home in terms of taking things for granted around the time of year that is supposed to be all about friends, family (and food – for me anyways).

5) Jack Frost

(1998. Stars Michael Keaton, Kelly Preston)

Makes me cry every time I watch it. Michael Keaton is one of my favourite actors (and my favourite Batman) and he pulls on my heart strings in this film. It’s such a lovely story and is nice to watch with any loved one as it does get quite emotional and you might need a hug.

What are your favourite Christmas films?
