1. Christmas Vacation
Clark Griswold want to have a lovely family Christmas at home. I love that: just staying at home. There are lots of relatable element in the movie. Like when Clark and his wife sing a Christmas song in the car, and then ask their children to sing along. A suggestion that is greeted with a big, awkward silence. But this doesn't face Clark and his wife. They just sing that part themselves.
And there's lots more where that came from. So if you like watching an old fashioned family Christmas at home, you'll like Christmas Vacation I'm sure.
2. Trains and boats and planes
Now technically this isn't a Christmas movie. It's about Thanksgiving. But it definitely has a Christmas vibe. It's sweet, funny and it's a great story.
Steve Martin desperately wants to be home for Thanksgiving, but his plane gets cancelled and he tries to get home in other ways, hence the title.
3. Funny Farm
A movie with Chevy Chase again, and it's not even that I'm a big fan of his. He just happens to star in some of my favorite Christmas movies. In this one Chevy Chase and his wife move to the country. They have this idea of a country idylle...
