Hey, guys! What’s your favorite holiday movie? Everyone at the myWebRoom HQ is VERY opinionated on this topic and we couldn’t decide on which one is best so we chose our top 10 (in no order) holiday movies of all time. Think we missed anything?
Oh, we also found where you can stream all of our favorite holiday movies online – because we’re THAT nice. Bookmark these to the TV in your WebRoom for easy access later!
This fish-out-of-water story made us believe in magic again. Seeing Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel team up with comedic hilarity was amazing. Plus hearing their “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” duet is unforgettable.
You can stream Elf on your computer over at Amazon Instant for only $3.99.
The kids in us can’t resist the slapstick comedy of Home Alone. It’s a classic tale of boy vs. burglars. Home Alone is a classic lesson in DIY home defense. Plenty of us tried to make booby traps at home to various degrees of success and parental damage.
Here’s a clip of what damage would REALLY have happened to the burglars if those falls weren’t stunts.
You can find Home Alone over at Google Play, where you can stream it for only $2.99. Bonus: you can stream Home Alone 2 for free on YouTube!
Everyone loves a bad boy. When a down-on-his-luck con man decides to pull a con as a mall Santa, hilarity ensues. Let’s just say kids and criminals don’t go together very well. That seems to be a running theme, doesn’t it? Well, if you’re too lazy to watch the whole movie, you can see the condensed version of it in this 8-minute version:
Netflix has Bad Santa on streaming right now for your holiday convenience!
This one is a hands-down classic. Almost everyone here at myWebRoom HQ insisted that Christmas Story be part of the list. Who doesn’t relate to the antics of a kid who’s been dreaming of one unlikely present for the holidays?
We all know sometimes what we really want doesn’t show up under that tree. Well, this year there’s one thing we know for sure: you can totally stream this movie for free on YouTube! It’s a Christmas miracle!
A Nightmare Before Christmas
This is the movie that taught us that we could celebrate holidays any way we want. Sure, as kids we were smitten by the movie’s amazing claymation characters and the oddly sinister take on Christmas, but we will always value learning that no matter how weird we are, we can always be true to our own style.
Any time someone says “What’s this?” We all know what we start to sing in our heads. THIS song:
The Santa Clause
Alright, this movie is downright dumb in a lot of ways, but it’s such a part of so many of our childhoods that we had to include this for all the 90’s kids out there.
Oh, this movie is also super creepy in some parts – if only for the special effects employed during the mid-90’s.
Yeah, no thank you to that.
Everyone has a soft spot for this perfect holiday romance. Everyone.
It’s kinda weird to see Liam Neeson go from broken-hearted widower and single father in this…
…to a cold-blooded killer in “Taken.”
Or to see Andrew Lincoln go from a soft-hearted fellow in this romantic comedy..
…to a badass zombie-killer in “The Walking Dead.”
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
This is another movie that set the bar for dysfunctional families that were somehow lovable despite themselves. Oh, and there was a LOT of slapstick in this.Back in the day, all you had to do get a laugh was fall off of a roof or get electrocuted. Ever wonder how much the property damage in this movie would have caused? Check it out:
Dudes were also a little bit creepier back then, too.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Possibly one of the greatest things to come out of Christmas entertainment is The Grinch. He’s ugly, he’s mean, and he’s a thief. Luckily, he eventually finds out that he’s a good guy deep down inside. We like to give it up for the original cartoon that first taught us not to be big jerks during the holidays.
We were a bit divided about which movie is better, so we’ll give it up for the Jim Carrey version, too.
Whichever one is your poison, you can find it online this year. Like the cartoon? Check it out on Amazon Instant or Google Play. Prefer the live-action version? It’s still on Amazon Instant or Google Play. Funny how that works, right?
It’s a Wonderful Life
This is an obvious classic. It’s the tale of learning to love yourself, despite all your failures. Hope is what we use to go forward. Equally good for when you’re feeling down and for when you’re feeling happy. If you haven’t seen this, give it a watch. It’s short and sweet.
Due to the fact that someone forgot to renew the movie’s copyright (whoops!) it became an instant holiday tradition when TV broadcasters were able to play it every year for FREE – no royalties to Liberty Films, who made it. Check out this classic film on Amazon Instant or Google Play!
So that’s it! Did we miss anything? Let us know!
