See also

When it comes to holiday entertainment, some people revel in the saccharine sweet tales that fill the movie theaters and receive plenty of air-time on television. Miracle on 34th Street, It’s a Wonderful Life and A Muppet Christmas Carol are fine films if you love those super happy endings. Yes, those sugary sweet tales of bad-guys gone good, learned lessons, chaotic Christmases and Santa’s saved are fine for most people, but what if you are more Scrooge than you are Elf? What if you don’t dig on the holiday scene? Then what films should you be enjoying this season? No need to worry, there is plenty of great holiday fare that is perfect for the curmudgeonly Grinch in us all. So trade in your mistletoe for a bottle of Jack and get down on these fantastic films that speak to anyone who is less than thrilled at the typical entertainment choices this December.
