Well, folks. . . It wasn’t until November that I realized just how few Christmas movies there are that I truly love. Sure, I watch a lot of Christmas movies! A lot of Hallmark and ABC Family type Christmas movies, especially, I think. And, for the most part, I do like them. But, to me, they’re just kinda. . . I dunno. . . a bit of fluffy romantic comedy to enjoy over the holidays. Okay, they aren’t always comedy, but I’d say they are always romantic. And usually pretty fluffy.
Anyway, so what I was saying is: there just aren’t a lot of them that I would gush over and highly recommend to people because they were just so wonderful! And I am definitely not one who can just whip out a list of classics such as: It’s a Wonderful Life or Miracle on 34th Street. I really don’t care for either of those, but I will be including one classic Christmas movie this month– one that you’ll have to wait until later to see. 😉
So it was kinda hard for me to even choose 4 Christmas movies for this month long Christmas Edition of Cinematic Saturdays. (Hint: You should totally appreciate the effort here! ‘Cause I ain’t doin’ this again. hehe! 😛 )
While browsing YouTube for some good Christmas movies to watch, I came across a movie that I had almost forgotten about!
It’s a funny Christmas movie that came out in 1997; a movie that I used to love, but hadn’t seen in probably 3 years, at least. I had such good memories of it, though, so I had to watch it again. Yep! It was just as good as I had remembered!
And y’all may recognize the leading man, Mark Ruffalo, from his roll as Dr. Bruce Banner in The Avengers movies. 😉
