#7 – How The Grinch Stole Christmas

The live action version of the original animated classic, starring Carrey as the Grinch himself. The best part by far, is any time that the Grinch belittles Cindy Lou Who.

#6 – Four Christmases

Starring: Vince Vaughn & Reese Witherspoon

From: 2008

A story about what all of us dread, the many houses we have to attend around the holidays. Hilarious because each family visited has a little something in common with our own. Except for maybe our mom’s dating our old best friends.

Memorable Quote:

Jim: I’m not trying to be your father, I’m hoping for a chance to be your friend.

Brad: You were my friend, you were my best friend, but now you’re sleeping with my mom and it’s a little bit weird for me.


#5 – Bad Santa

Starring: Billy Bob Thorton

From: 2003

The worst side of Christmas rears it’s ugly head in the form of Billy Bob Thorton as a mall Santa in this hilarious “Christmas” movie. Best part, Willie waking up to Christmas music on his alarm clock radio and dropping about 15 F-bombs.

Memorable Quote:

Sue: I’ve always had a thing for Santa Claus. In case you didn’t notice. It’s like some deep-seeded childhood thing.
Willie: So is my thing for tits.


#4 – Fred Claus

Starring: Vince Vaughn & Paul Giamatti

From: 2007

A great movie about how the other half of the Claus family lives. Vaughn plays Fred, the brother to Santa Claus who doesn’t have it quite as Holly Jolly as is brother, as seen when his brother Santa, parents, and his girlfriend attempt to stage an intervention.

#3 – A Christmas Story

Starring: Peter Billingsley & Darren McGavin

From: 1983

Where do you begin with this classic that covers every nuance of the holiday season from an evil mall Santa, to school bullies. You could list a hundred best parts of the movie, but the Leg Lamp easily outshines them all.

Memorable Quote:

Santa Claus: How about a nice football?
Ralphie as Adult:[narrating] Football? Football? What’s a football? With unconscious will my voice squeaked out ‘football’.
Santa Claus: Okay, get him out of here.
Ralphie as Adult:[narrating] A football? Oh no, what was I doing? Wake up, Stupid! Wake up!
Ralphie: [Ralphie is shoved down the slide, but he stops himself and climbs back up] No! No! I want an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!
Santa Claus: You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.


#2 – Elf

Starring: Will Ferrell & James Caan

From: 2003

By far the most hilarious part of this movie is Buddy trying to hug a raccoon, but the entire movie will make you laugh.

Gimbel’s Santa: Let the kid talk.
Buddy: You disgust me! How can you live with yourself?
Gimbel’s Santa: Just cool it, Zippy.
Buddy: You sit on a throne of lies.
Gimbel’s Santa: Look, I’m not kiddin’.

Gimbel’s Santa: I’m a fake?
Buddy: Yes!
Gimbel’s Santa: How’d you like to be dead, huh? Ho, ho, just kidding.
Buddy: You stink.
Gimbel’s Santa: I think you’re gonna have a good Christmas, all righ
Buddy: You smell like beef and cheese, you don’t smell like Santa.


#1 – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Starring: Chevy Chase & Randy Quaid

From: 1989

Funniest Moment: Though the entire movie is worth a thousand laughs, the shining moment has to be when Cousin Eddie arrives and Clark does a double take. From there, it’s all gut busting laughs.

Memorable Quote:

Clark: Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?
Eddie: Naw, I’m doing just fine, Clark.

  1. Christmas Vacation is number 1 for sure, but I think A Christmas Story should be ahead of Elf. It’s a classic.

  2. i disagree tom a CHRISTMAS STORY SUCKED SO BAD I PASSED OUT EVERY TIME I WATCHED IT.. all the national lampoons movies with chevy chase were the best.

  3. A movie that I liked to watch around Christmas is Lethal Weapon .I know it’s not a comedy it’s action but it takes place at Christmas .Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are fun together.
