What Memorable Movies Have You Seen on Christmas Day?

For the past few years, I've made a tradition of going to the movies on Christmas Day, once all the presents have been opened and I've lazed around for a good while. There's a special feeling about hitting the theater, especially a new release, on the holiday.

In recent years, I've taken in Dreamgirls, The Life Aquatic, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (I'm still trying to figure out what I'll go see this year). I find that even if the movie is lackluster, I tend to remember the movie and excursion fondly because of the day.

If you hit the movies on Christmas, what movies have been memorable for you? Are you planning on going to the theater this year? And while you're still in the spirit, don't forget to play my best holiday movie faceoff!

Benjamin Button for me since it was the first time I ever watched a movie at Christmas.

It does suck that people have to work during the holidays, but what else is there to do once the presents are opened and there's nothing else to do at home? I've never actually gone out on Christmas Day, but this year I'm hoping to see either Up in the Air or It's Complicated.

I agree with dootsie! Why can't people just watch movies at home on Christmas? Any place that's open year round the employees always have choose between Christmas Eve or Day ... and in some cases, they don't have a choice. I don't want to be contributing to someone having to work on Christmas...

I've always wanted to do this, and this year will be my first. I'll probably see Its Complicated with the family, but I'd love to see Sherlock Holmes, too. There may be a double feature in my future!!

I went once and the line was ridiculously long! I only went when I was home for Christmas break from college...years ago I think I saw that Matt Damon Movie the Talented Mr. Ripley or something like that.

I think it's really selfish to go to any store or business on Christmas Day. Spending money in any store on a holiday encourages those businesses to stay open.

We usually don't do this, so the one I remember most is Titanic...I will never forget that epic movie on Christmas day--what a classic!

This has become a tradition at my house every year too. Couple that I still love watching every year at Christmas time that I've seen are The Holiday and The Family Stone.
