"Must See" for Xmas

Inspired by Deb's post here, what movie or TV show is a must see over the holidays?

If I could recommend just one Xmas themed movie, it would be Bernard and the Genie. I've adored this movie since I saw in on PBS about ten years ago.

I'm a softie for "One Magic Christmas".

Also, the "Muppets Christmas Carol" is fun to watch every year.

Well, and "Ernest Saves Christmas."

Don't think any less of me, please.

The Patrick Stewart version of "A Christmas Carol"

For what it's worth, I'm listening to Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys on CD. The reader is Lenny Henry - the Benie in Bernard and the Genie. Henry does just a great job of bringing the book to life.

We added a Christmas themed movie to our list this year, Millions. Another one of those "careful what you wish for" type of movies ... with interestingly included Saints.
