What are your favorite movies to watch for a good laugh? I love comedies with good humor. Thanks!
Not ha ha funny, but charming: White Christmas with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye.
For a laugh you can beat Elf, Four Christmases, A Christmas Story and Jingle all the Way(i think that is the name of the movie with Arnold trying to get "the toy" for his son
I agree with "The Holiday." Great movie.
I don't absolutely looove Christmas, but I die laughing every time I watch that movie. Maybe on my to do list this weekend.
I like Holiday Inn better than White Christmas (it introduces the White Christmas song) as my classic favorite.
Favorite chick flick: The Holiday
Favorite parent movie: Jingle all the Way
Favorite when the kids were little: Home Alone
I don't know what category Elf is in but it's one of the best!
And I love 'Charlie Brown Christmas'
White Christmas ( watched it again last night and it is very witty)
Miracle on 34th Street ( not haha funny, but again, very witty)
Home Alone 1 and 2
The Santa Clause ( this is one of my favorites. Love it)
Love Actually ( I actually love )
I forgot about Home Alone Love that movie
It was on several times in the past two weeks. That's how I remembered it!
Mine have all been said:
Home Alone (the first one)
"It's a wonderful life" hands down it is warm, funny & gives nice warm feeling!

For a laugh...National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
Elf!!!! (have you seen the size of these toilets? They're ginormous!)
The Santa Clause
Miracle on 34th street
Christmas with the Kranks
The Gathering (old Ed Asner movie)
Any of those old claymation type shows: Rudolph, Little Drummer Boy, A Year Without Santa...
From childhood: Rudolph, Frosty, Twas the Night Before Christmas (the clock)...and I'll throw in Home Alone and Prancer, too. The first three, however, were required at Christmas.
Oh, I forgot about Frosty and Rudolf! I loved those as a kid. Do they still show them on TV?
Oh, yes...I watched Rudolph last week with my husband. He had never seen it. Unbelievable!
I like the Claymation Christmas Special, with the dinosaurs and the California Raisins.
My BF & I have seemed to have gotten in the habit of watching Jingle All the Way the last 10 Christmastimes.
You've been together a long time!
I love: Elf, The Santa Clause, Miracle on 34th Street, and Alistair Sim's A Christmas Carol.
That is a long time! Any plans to get engaged?
Elf, A Christmas Story and The Grinch (not the cartoon).
TennisPlayer, it sure would be nice to.
Ms. I...... Ladies can ask guys too! I know it's not as common. I was the one who chose my husband from an online dating site and took things slowly and eventually asked him if he wanted to be in a commited relationship/go out...so it's kind of the same but it's up to you and him of course. I just wouldn't want to still be dating for that long without a more committed status if that makes sense in a nice way so you can feel that much more settled in life if he agrees of course!
Christmas in Connecticut. My hands down favorite. Uncle Felix is probably the funniest character in the entire 1940's.
'National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation' is my favorite. A close 2nd is 'A Christmas Story'

Elf for sure!
It's a Wonderful Life is my favorite movie off tall-time, though.
Can't believe no one else has mentioned /Four Christmases. It is hilarious
Scrooged is one of my all-time favorites. Not always a Bill Murray fan but love him in that movie.
It's a Wonderful Life is one of those that as many times as I've seen it (and I know how it's going to end)-it always makes me cry.
I also just adore Love Actually-that scene where he asks her to marry him in butchered Portuguese--:wub:.
We just watched that this afternoon!
