There is nothing better than spending the Christmas holidays watching Christmas movies with family and friends.


Here is a list of the top Christmas movies based on box office ticket sales.  Are they really the best Christmas movies?



How The Grinch Stole Christmas

Jim Carrey fans will love seeing him dressed up and frolicking in this hugely successful Christmas flick.  This is a timeless classic based on the character conceived by Dr Suess. Carrey injects his trademark energy and humour to keep both adults and chiildren entertained.  While Carrey is nothing short of brilliant the supporting cast is also entertaining and charming.


The Polar Express

An animated Christmas film that boasts the voice over of Tom Hanks.  It tells the story of a boy who doubts the existence of Santa until one Christmas Eve a magical train journey reveals to him that magic and Santa really do exist.



A giant by elf standards, Will Ferrell is sent to the US in search of his true identity after inadvertently causing havoc in his elf community.  Ferrell is brilliant in this original, good, clean Christmas comedy. 


The Santa Clause

What would you do if you accidentally killed Santa and were forced to take his place?  The concept is original and well handled by Tim Allen of Home Improvement fame.  Solid entertainment for adults and children alike.


The Santa Clause 2

Tim Allen returns as Scott Calvin who has been Santa for the past 10 years.  His task this time is to find himself a Mrs. Clause.


A Christmas Carol (2009)

Jim Carrey returns to the screen in another Christmas movie.  In this animated reinvention of the classical Charles Dickens’ novel, the Victorian Scrooge takes us on a journey of self- redemption and reminds us that money can not buy happiness.



Four Christmases

A feel-good adult Christmas comedy flick.  Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn are a couple from divorced backgrounds.  Their escapades visiting their four sets of parents takes them on a journey that will have you laughing out loud.


The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause

Continuing on the back of the success of the first two instalments this one unfortunately does not rise to the same level.  Santa must struggle with keeping his family happy whilst stopping Jack Frost from destroying Christmas.
