A Jaded Christmas Movie Review….
this post is supposed to be humor/ sarcasm. if you find yourself becoming offended…. Shake it off!
As a mother of seven, granny of four, Christmas time means re-watching the same movies I have seen over and over and over…. Some of you share my pain.
-a truly American Christmas story. An ex-husband risks his life to save his estranged ex-wife. A real Christmas miracle!
A Charlie Brown Christmas
-an utopian Lord of the Flies. Where are the parents? (I actually really like this one.)
How the Grinch Stole Christmas (The Jim Carey version)
-the story of a dysfunctional family. It explains why we don’t invite Uncle G to Christmas. It also explains why Uncle G is ticked with the family. It is the story of why the quieter family members need to speak up before the more pushy members drive those who don’t quite fit in to wrath. The older version had a more positive message.
Frosty the Snowman
-a twisted resurrection story? Are we sure this is meant for Christmas?
Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer
-liking someone because you suddenly need them is not the same as true repentance- just saying.
The Santa Clause
-why divorce sucks for the kids. Also a great excuse for post-holiday weight gain!
It’s A Wonderful Life
-no, it isn’t. George Bailey is wonderful; everyone else takes him for granted. This is why we need to show appreciation for the good people in our lives. No one who does as much good as George Bailey should feel alone and suicidal. Stop trying to keep the obnoxious people happy and start showering the good people with love!
A Christmas Story
-it’s time to get some work done around my house when this comes on. I don’t understand this one at all. What’s up with the lamp? Get the kid some eye protection. Lot’s of angst over trivial matters…
A Christmas Carol
-at Scrooge’s age, three ghosts in one night would put him in the ER. There’s only so much an aging heart can take!
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
-unfortunately more true to life than most of us would like to admit…
-the local authorities couldn’t come and get the kid to a safe place before mom could get home? Really? There was no one local to call? What the heck were the parents trying to cover up that they didn’t want anyone to come to the house to help their kid?
