    What is the cost t9 watch these movies on Fetch?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Colleen!

      – Leo

  2. Fiona says:

    Love the list but could add :
    The Santa Clause (1, 2 & 3)
    Christmas with the Kranks
    Miracle on 34th Street
    The Polar Express
    Holiday Inn
    White Christmas

  3. Len Heggarty says:

    There is nothing like Charles Dicken’s “A Christmas Carol”
    To begin:
    “Marley was dead to begin with.”
    Only Charles Dickens can write like that.

  4. Brian Haverty says:

    I know it’s a little different than your usual Christmas fare, but I love The Silent Partner (1978) with Elliot Gould and and Christopher Plummer. It’s a good old-fashioned thriller that’s set around Christmas time.

  5. Daphne says:

    Oh yes – The Polar Express AND Holiday Inn AND White Christmas. The last one, even after so many years of viewing it, still sings. Add, even though it isn’t a Christmas movie, Mama Mia. I will always love that one!

  6. Kevin says:

    Also:
    National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

  7. John says:

    Deskset is my wife’s go to Christmas movie and I can’t resist it either with Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn.

  8. Richard Allen says:

    @Fiona, agree with your adds as they are part of our family tradition.

    @John, I’ll take a look at Desk Set as we love the oldies.

    We recently watch Almost Christmas. Wasn’t what we thought it be, but was well worth watching.

  9. Anonymous says:

    Scrooged – with Bill Murry

  10. Benny says:

    The Christmas Chronicles (released last year) with Kurt Russell, is simply brilliant.

  11. Heather says:

    National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

  12. Max says:

    Christmas Chronicles
    Kurt Russell as Santa
    Nails it

  13. Felicity says:

    Definitely Desk Set, their Christmas party is almost as good as ours and also Nativity, very funny!
