There’s only a few days until Christmas and it’s time to jump on that sofa with all the best festive films, grab some snacks and veg out. For at least 4 days over Christmas you can forget about uni work, trousers and responsibilities – it’s movie time. We’re running down our top 5 favourites, there could be loads more but we’ve whittled it down otherwise we’d be watching ‘em until February!
“Buddy The Elf – what’s your favourite colour?” Of course, this is our number 1 Christmas film! Will Ferrell is at his comedy best and we always forget that there’s blonde Zoey Deschanel in this movie AND she can sing.
2. The Grinch who Stole Christmas
Jim Carrey all green and furry eating glass and wearing Leiderhosen? What’s not to love. This movie is packed full of awesome one-liners, cute heartfelt moments and Carrey’s constant hilarity. Shout out to Max too – the unsung hero of this movie.
3. The Holiday
This is our favourite girly chick flick movie that it perfect for chilling out on Christmas Eve. It’s also one of the longest, so pop it on before you go to sleep and you’ll be well and truly ready for bed before Santa comes! Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet and Jack Black create a stellar cast full of romance and all the ‘awww’ moments a girl will ever need this Christmas (and guys we know deep down you can’t resist a good ol’ rom com!).
4. Jingle All The Way
This is without doubt Arnie’s best film, by the end of it even we want a Turboman! It’s funny, heart-warming and just sometimes downright ridiculous! All together now… ‘Put that cookie down! Now!’
5. Bridget Jones’ Diary
Ok – so not strictly a Christmas film, but it starts around Christmas and makes us all thankful that we don’t have an Aunt Una jabbering on about lumpy gravy. It’s full of quotable lines and single girls everywhere can sigh with relief as they realise they aren’t as hopeless as they once thought!
Merry Christmas guys! We hope you have an awesome one.
