A Christmas Story would definitely be on my husband's top five--he loves it! It would probably be in my top 15 as well.

I'm going to redo my top five list and break it up into two lists like DVDguy--classics and contemporary:

Classic top five:
1. Scrooge (Albert Finney)
2. White Christmas
3. Miracle on 34th Street
4. A Christmas Carol (Alistair Sim)
5. It's a Wonderful Life

Contemporary top five:
1. The Santa Clause
2. Elf
3. The Ref
4. Love Actually
5. Christmas Vacation

I guess I am an odd one because I do not care for this movie. I have seen this movie a few times and there is only one scene that I like but even that is not a must see for me.

1) Miracle on 34th Street (original version)
2) It's A Wonderful Life
3) Scrooge (1951 version)
4) The Homecoming (1971 Pilot for "The Waltons" series)
5) A Hobo's Christmas

Since that leaves so many out that I LOVE, I feel I must list my top ELEVEN.
I list 11 because these are usually the ONLY ones I watch each year and I have all on either tape or DVD.
I try to watch them every year, time permitting.
In no special order:

1) Miracle on 34th Street (original version)
2) It's A Wonderful Life
3) Scrooge (1951 version)
4) A Christmas Story
5) White Christmas
6) The Night They Saved Christmas
7) The Homecoming
8) It Nearly Wasn't Christmas
9) Home Alone (first one)
10) The Man In The Santa Claus Suit
11) A Hobo's Christmas

Also, a short (30 min) film done by the Mormons called "Mr. Krueger's Christmas" starring a much older Jimmy Stewart.

(I never miss "A Charlie Brown Christmas" either but it and "Mr Krueger's Christmas" are technically not movies.)
