THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL (1992)

My favorite Christmas movie, bar none, featuring Michael Caine as Scrooge and Gonzo the Great as Charles Dickens.

WHITE CHRISTMAS (1954)

Great Irving Berlin songs, great performances, and a plot you shouldn’t think about too hard.

AN AMERICAN TAIL (1986)

I have many questions about this animated musical and its story about oppressed Jewish immigrant mice.

THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS (1993)

Halloween decides to take over Christmas in what has become one of my favorites.

FOOTLOOSE (1984)

Is it a hard hitting drama about small town life? Is it a musical? The answers lie in Kevin Bacon’s angry dancing.

THE MUPPETS TAKE MANHATTAN (1984)

The Muppets take their act to Broadway in one of the definitive movies of my childhood.
