It focuses on ......well ....love actually

It is not a Christmas storyline as such but it is set around Christmas time. There are a few Christmas songs on the soundtrack and indirect references to Christmas though out the film.

The feeling you get at the end of the movie will make you want to cry and laugh at the same time. I watch it every Christmas eve before bed.
It's one of my favorites, too!! Awesome movie!! =)

I agree that Love Actually is one of the best Christmas movies ever! But also The Holiday, You've got mail, While you were sleeping and Miss Potter works for me. All have nice glimpses of Christmas and the holiday season, combined with some romance and sentimentality

I saw 'While You Were Sleeping' a couple of weekends ago on TV. I forgot it had background Christmas theme. Needless to say I really enjoyed it!

ABC Family channel released a movie, Snowglobe, made in 2007 that I love. It's super corny, I know, but I guess it's suppose to be.

It's about a young lady with a "not so perfect" family that celebrate a "not so perfect" Christmas and she wants to have the perfect Christmas. She steps into a Snowglobe that celebrate Christmas, perfectly! I love the scenes inside the Snowglobe.

Snowglobe is one of my all time favourite corny Christmas movies! I just love the atmosphere and it is so easy to watch and get immersed into. I feel really Christmassy when I watch it!

I have never seen this one, but now I'll have a look. I love snowglobes, and corny isn't necessarily bad

Oddly enough, my favorite not very well known Christmas films are actually riffs of the films themselves, which is odd.


Mystery Science Theater 3000 did 2, Santa Claus (a Mexican kids film), and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.

Both two of my Fave episodes of MST3k. Lets all have a Patrick Swayze Christmas



www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZyJCV_dyug‎


Open up your heart and let the Patrick Swayze Christmas in. We'll gather at the Road House with our next of kin. And Santa can be our regular Saturday night thing. We'll decorate a barstool and gather round and sing. Oh, let's have a Patrick Swayze Christmas this year! Or we'll tear your throat out and kick you in the ear...

(spoken) Joel: Hold it, hold it a sec. Cambot, stop the music. Uh, Crow, I don't know if I think this is an appropriate sentiment anymore for Christmas.
Crow: Hey, what? Like a good action sequence don't belong in Christmas?
Joel
: Well, no, it's just that I've never heard of an action sequence in a Christmas carol before.

Crow
: Well, then grab hold o' your socks, Joel Robinson, and read on!

Tom: Okay, pick it up from measure 20, Cambot. (music)...Lovely intro, though. Very tasteful.
Crow: Thank you. It's my way or the highway, this Christmas at my bar. I'll have to smash your kneecaps if you bastards touch my car! I got the word that Santa has been stealing from the till. I think that that right jolly old elf had better make out his will! Oh, let's have a Patrick Swayze Christmas, one and all. And this can be the haziest... This can be the laziest... This can be the Swayziest Christmas of them all!

I also love The Family Stone. One of my all time favorites, set around Christmas time.

The first time I watched it, I cringed a little..then I watched it over & over again, and fell in love with it. It has an all-star cast.

It's very heartwarming!!
