    Here's a great christmas classic that feels underrated.

    I saw this 2 times in theaters when i was 7 with my family and we loved it, it has became a family favorite for a long time and one of my fave christmas movies.

    Agreed. I look forward to this one showing up on TV every December. If it's been on this year, I haven't seen it (I don't have premium channels, but I think HBO usually has it). Fantastic comedy and Bill Murray really shines. It's also got an excellent supporting cast. Too bad it's only available for DVD on Netflix.

    Interestingly enough, I am just about to sit down for my yearly viewing of Scrooged. This is my Christmas tradition movie and it is awesome.

    Never saw it. But I kinda want to.


    Also, I'm going to start saying that around Christmas time.

    I remind people about this one whenever the topic of Christmas movies comes up. Carol Kane can hit me with a toaster any day. Shit gets me rolling every time.

    I still love the scene where his old boss returns from the dead. Funny and creepy all rolled into one.

    Excellent delivery through. Murray has perfect timing, and Carol Kane made the movie. Her part was far and away the best.
