Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch – The Grinch (voice of Benedict Cumberbatch) is a cynical grump who likes to bring misery to people’s lives. He routinely goes into Whoville to do mean things, spreading ill will wherever he goes.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – It’s Christmas time and the Griswolds are preparing for a family seasonal celebration, but things never run smoothly for Clark (Chevy Chase), his wife Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo) and their two kids.

Love Actually – As Christmas approaches, the new bachelor Prime Minister (Hugh Grant) falls in love with a refreshingly real member of the staff moments after entering 10 Downing Street, while a writer (Colin Firth) escapes to the south of France to nurse his broken heart. A married woman (Emma Thompson) suspects her husband (Alan Rickman) is slipping away, while a widowed stepfather (Liam Neeson) tries to connect with a son he suddenly barely knows, and a rock star (Bill Nighy) stages an end-of-career comeback in his own uncompromising way.
