Elf. I LOVE this movie, don't get me wrong. From the line "Son of a Nutcracker" to Buddy giving his Dad lingerie for Christmas to the snowball fight in the park, I love this movie. But what I always wonder is, if the elves at Santa's workshop can build so many great toys, can't they at least build Buddy a bigger bed? C'mon, the guy's already a human orphan
Home Alone. Hands down one of the best movies of all time, in ANY genre. How unrealistic is this movie though? I mean in real life, you get electrocuted, you die. You get hit in the head with a brick from 3 stories up, you die. You stick your burning head in a toilet full of kerosene, you die. You do all of those, plus about 50 more gruesome things, you always die. Get my point? haha not that it isn't hilarious (and cringeworthy) watching the bad guys get it.
Miracle on 34th Street. Just sayin, most Moms don't leave their daughters with random strangers to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. P.S. The 1947 version of the movie is the best one, don't even try to convince me otherwise.
Jingle All the Way. So after Howard's wife Liz and creepy neighbor Ted find Howard in Ted's house stealing presents, they just shrug their shoulders and head off to the Christmas parade? Yea, I don't think so.. in real life cops would be called or there'd be a throwdown, probably both.
The Santa Clause. I am super duper in love with this movie (is it okay to love a movie?) but what I don't get is WHY Charlie's mom and husband Neil are so effing upset about a 7 year old believing in Santa? That is NOT abnormal, I was
15 10 when I stopped believing. Plus, I think it's super creative and not bothersome at all the way Charlie set up the chairs in his bedroom to be like reindeer and a sleigh. Sorry NEIL, but can we just let kids be kids, please?! Also, I think a doctor would be a lot more concerned than Scott's was about him gaining 45 pounds IN A WEEK! I mean, wouldn't he at least order some bloodwork?
These definitely aren't all of the unbelievable parts from Christmas movies, but it's all I can think of at the moment. What other ridiculous scenes from holiday movies do you find hard to believe? Linking up with Chelsee and Christine!
P.S. Did you meet Kenny Angel yesterday?
