The McCallister family is preparing for a holiday trip to Paris, France, but make a grave realization

as their flight departs: they left their youngest son, Kevin, at home. While he’s home alone, Kevin

unearths the schemes of two robbers, Harry and Marv, who plan to rob his house on Christmas Eve.

Armed with his own clever booby traps, Kevin must use his wits to protect the house. Home Alone is a

hilarious Christmas movie, and the silly antics of Kevin McCallister seem to never get dull. Upon first

watch and rewatch, the chase between Kevin and the burglars will never not be funny.


The Grinch is heartless and despises everything about Christmas and how the Whos celebrate it.

With hatred in his heart, he disguises himself as Santa Claus and goes down to Whoville to steal their

Christmas away. With three adaptations of the story from the Dr. Seuss book, the original animated

1996 version is the best one. With fun colors and a great soundtrack, this film never disappoints. It feels

so authentic in a market that has been saturated with such similar Christmas stories.


The Griswold family always seem to be getting themselves into some crazy situations fueled by bad luck,

and this bad luck is heightened by the arrival of their extended family for Christmas. Clark Griswold is

just trying to survive the season and make it special, and he hopes that he will receive a Christmas bonus

to make the holidays special. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is a hilarious family comedy and

is easy for those who feel they have a crazy and embarrassing family to relate to. The film relies on irony

to deliver jokes, and it works magic for the film.
