Christmas Movie Quiz

Behind the cut are pictures from 10 Christmas Movies. See how many you recognize (just because I forgot to journal today, and this was a quick thought).



1. This might be a hard one and a little obscure. It's a 1994 film about a bickering couple (Kevin Spacey and Judy Davis) teetering on the edge of divorce, who have their Christmas dinner crashed by a home invader played by comedian Dennis Leary.

2. Most people will recognize this 1983 flick, about a boy named Ralphie who tries to convince his parents that the perfect Christmas present is a Red Rider BB gun.

3. Another easy one, from 2000, in which Jim Carrey goes green and plays the title character of this Dr. Seuss Christmas children's book.

4. In this 2003 film, Billy Bob Thornton plays a miserable conman planning to rob department stores on Christmas Eve.

5. Another Christmas favourite from 2003, in which Will Ferrell plays Buddy.

8. A historical drama made in 2005 about the famous 1914 Christmas truce of the First World War, in which French, English and German actors speak in their native tongues in the movie (with subtitles).

9. An ensemble cast movie from 2003 that includes the story of a British Prime Minister falling in love with his secretary, and an aging rock singer covering a classic song with a Christmas twist.

10. A 1987 movie about two men (played by Steve Martin and John Candy) trying to get home for the holidays. If you watched it, you'll remember the line "those aren't pillows!"

Re: The Answers
I should have guessed on the last one. I would have been right, but I haven't seen it.

sorry but i loath christmas movies!
i can happily say i have never watched any of those

i have watched the original Miracle on 34th street and various versions of Dickens - Alastair Sim is my favorite
but i have a very soft spot for Scrooge the Musical - that one i would watch again - i love the soup man!

Of all of these, I really think you would appreciate Joyeux Noel. It's not a typical Christmas movie at all, and I think you would enjoy the history angle, much like I did.

8 out of 10 is very impressive, especially since most of these are over 20 years old and some are very obscure. Well done!
