Flick Yeah!: the JCI Team Talks Favorite Holiday Movies
With December in full swing, it's officially the most magical time of the year! Families have begun the holiday festivities, and what better way to get yourself in the Christmas mood than binge-watching all your favorite holiday flicks (maybe other than listening to Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You" on repeat 24/7). Here's a list of the JCI Team's favorite holiday movies that you can play in the background while decorating your tree:
Want to watch a rom com with your sister? Georgea and her sister have a yearly holiday tradition of watching The Holiday for a good laugh. You can find the film on Hulu, Prime Video, or YouTube.
If you're looking for an absolute cinematic masterpiece, then look no further than Elf. This incredible film is arguably Will Ferrell's peak. Check it out on HBO Max, Prime Video, or YouTube.
Wanting something a little less PG and a little more PG-13? Bad Santa is a great option for guaranteed laughs and debauchery. You can find it on Hulu, Prime Video, or YouTube.
If you want a funny family film, Kayla recommends Christmas With the Kranks. Watch now on Prime Video, YouTube, or Apple TV!
If you're a sucker for true Christmas classics, you should watch Miracle on 34th Street (the original 1947 version, of course)! You can stream it on HBO Max or YouTube!
Are you a big Disney fan like Maddy? She recommends that you watch Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas – it's fun for kids and adults! Stream it on Disney+.
Watch Little Fockers if you're craving some Hanukkah representation! Stream this menschy movie on Hulu, Prime Video, or YouTube.
Home Alone 2 is the perfect film for a big family. It's funny, chaotic, and extremely relatable! An added bonus is that it's highly quotable: "Merry Christmas ya filthy animal!" Watch it on Hulu, Prime Video, or YouTube.
Do you want to feel warm and fuzzy inside? Feel all the feelings with It's a Wonderful Life! You can access it via Hulu, Prime Video, or YouTube.
Have you been craving an action film? No worries, Steve knows just the movie for you! Die Hard will fulfill all your action film needs with a Christmas flair. Stream now on Hulu, Prime Video, or YouTube.
And there you have it, folks. You're all set for the holiday season! The JCI Team would like to extend our warmest wishes to you, your family, and your friends this winter. Have the merriest of Christmases as you kick back, relax, and enjoy the movies.
