    Best Christmas movies for family ?

    We are spending Christmas abroad - nothing special my husband has to work.

    Rather than being stuck with foreign TV - I am planning to buy some x-mass movies to take with us.

    We really only got the Polar Express which we all seem to like but I need some more which the who family can enjoy.

    I agree the Iron Giant is a great film - and only about £3 when we bought it in Tescos!
    Depending on childrens agaes Meet the Parents is a classic! (+ the sequel Meet the Fockers)

    I have a very big head. :-D

    How about the Santa Claus movies-we have watched them loads of times as a family-and Stuart Little, also Disney classics like Mary Poppins & Chitty Chitty Bang Bang-prehaps i've never grown up !

    Exactly what I was going to say, every year we watch these 3, Polar Express and Miracle on 34th Street, the whole family love them all.

    Every year I watch 'Its a wonderful life'. It is magical and the black and white version is even better than the modern version.

    ]It's a Wonderful Life

    Has to be the ultimate Christmas movie... I love it

    I've said it once and I'll say it again...Bernard and the Genie :thumbsup:

    the snowman,bit short though!!

    ok most of my suggestions have been said but heres my list:

    Gremlins
    Home alone
    unacompanied minors (also called grounded) - kids will love it!
    miracle on 34th street
    santa claus the movie
    the santa clause trilogy
    the grinch
    Elf
    jingle all the way
    national lampoon
    nightmare before christmas
    scrooged

    someones just posted an amazon offer for Mary Poppins-see link below..........

    u cud possibly throw oliver in there.

    grinch
    edwardsciccorhands
    snowman
    shrek
    titanic
    planes,trains+automobiles

    I would of recommended a movie called Tokyo Godfathers, a Japanese animation that feels like a Frank Capra movie, except that an english dub was never made so would be a little to wordy with subtitles for the kids.
