Movies I've Missed, Part Deux
I've never seen it.
This is initially by design and now, it's easy to skip over. I'm not a fan of random madcap misadventures at the expense of someone, so seeing all the things that befall Clark Griswold wasn't my idea of fun.
After hearing everyone in a group rave on and on about how funny it was, I was pointed to a few clips on You Tube. Perhaps you have to see them in the context of the movie, because they didn't make me laugh.
On the other hand, give me Miracle on 34th Street and I'm happy. It's a Wonderful Life, ditto. Die Hard. Die Hard? It takes place at Christmas! Scrooged? Sure, why not-it has a happy ending, too.
The Rankin-Bass Christmas specials also rate high, and I'm lucky-my husband had to get the DVD box set when it came out, so I don't have to wait for them to show up on TV. Basically, if it's a Christmas special that airs every year, we own it on DVD or VHS.
What about you? What's your favorite and do you own a copy so you're not upset if you miss the broadcast?
