Holiday Movies? Not Really

Tinsel and trees aside, these films aren't all that interested in yuletide sentiment

Trading Places, Top Holiday Movies

Trading Places (1983)

Mean-spirited millionaire brothers (Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy) conspire to reduce a young commodities broker (Dan Aykroyd) to homeless poverty and elevate a street hustler (Eddie Murphy) to the broker's former position. Against a background of holiday glee, Aykroyd and Murphy are heartbreakingly hilarious as a couple of guys who don't know what hit them.

GREMLINS, Holiday movies

Zach Galligan is now almost an AARP-er. But in the 1984 film "Gremlins" he played Billy Peltzer, whose pet gremlin ran amok. — Everett Collection

Gremlins (1984)

It was summertime when director Joe Dante left this nasty little Christmas gift: a tale of ill-mannered monsters terrorizing a neighborhood at holiday time. Oh yeah, and Phoebe Cates tells the worst Christmas story ever.

Bruce Willis in Die Hard, Holiday movies

Bruce Willis in "Die Hard." — 20th Century Fox Film Corp/Everett Collection

Die Hard (1988)

"Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" Vaughn Monroe sings over the closing credits (and over the sequel's as well). Although it's set against the holiday season, there's nothing Christmasy about Bruce Willis' over-the-top actioner (unless Santa urges his reindeer on by yelling "Yippie-Yi-Yo-Ki-Yay!").
