He gives an entertaining, funny and honest look at the movies that have come to be known as Christmas movies and provides the groundwork for others to discover what could be their next holiday staple. The book is sure to provide family and friends with endless entertainment as they discover new favorites.'' --Tribute

Plus, you gotta love an author who can use the word "codswallop" when he picks apart the mistake that was Thomas Kinkade's Christmas Cottage.
All of these, and many more, are featured in this excellent guide to holiday movies. The films are organized into chapters focusing on comedies, kids' movies, grown-ups' movies, tearjerkers, crime and action stories, horror, bad Christmas movies, and the big classics; there's even a whole chapter on the various films of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." The plot and cast of each film is described in detail, with assessments of how the particular movie fits into the holiday canon and "fun facts" about the film and the makers/actors. (For example, did you know that the director/star of "Lady in the Lake," Robert Montgomery, was the father of "Bewitched" star Elizabeth Montgomery?) At the end of the book, there's an appendix listing dozens of other movies with Christmas content.
This is a very useful guide to holiday movies that will give you great ideas for viewing beyond the major classics. On top of that, it's just fun and interesting to read.Read more ›
This book is a must for the Christmas movie lover, but only if they're on the nice list!
I had a chance to examine this book before I bought it and it has a lot of film titles that
I hoped would be included and they were including TV movies;
such as "The Homecoming, A Christmas Story." The Waltons 1971 Holiday TV-movie.
This little book has every possible Christmas movie (the good, the bad and awful)
and also mini-reviews of the films, the impact they have had at the box office,
TV-Airings that cemented their reputations and movies
that have out lasted more successful films.
