Take Five: Favorite Holiday Movies

This time of year, many are watching their old holiday favorite movies, and the Hub bloggers are no exception! Today, we’re sharing our favorite more obscure holiday movies.

Take Five The Hub

Every December I will always watch Sandra Bullock in While You Were Sleeping.  It is absurd and I love it.  I am wholly enamoured with all of the characters.  For me it has always stood apart from other Romantic Comedies.  Lucy is both optimistic and forlorn in her attempts to find love while working at the train Station. When Lucy protects a man after he has been robbed, she unexpectedly becomes part of his life. I love the change-ups both expected and unexpected.  Don’t look closely at the plot though it will all unravel in a minute. — Laura Perenic

My favorite holiday movie that may very well be under-appreciated is Surviving Christmas, which stars Ben Affleck as this guy Drew who doesn’t have any family and he’d much rather go on a trip to Tahiti instead of celebrating Christmas.  His girlfriend gets mad at him and after a recommendation from his therapist he goes back to his childhood home to sort out his problems.  A new family lives in his old house and when Drew shows up at their door the movie gets funnier and funnier.  I love this movie because it’s a total clique on how you can find true love and how you can create a new family and live happily ever after.  Definitely a spirit building movie and I love to watch it every year! — Kimberli Buckley Continue reading Take Five: Favorite Holiday Movies
