"Holiday movie" was a fluid genre in my house growing up. My mom is Queen of Monster Movies and Action Flicks. Which means that anything that had the slightest mention of the holidays in it was considered fair game for December viewing.
The two biggest in our house were the original Lethal Weapon and Die Hard . Both old school late 80s action movies with lots of guns, explosions, and foul language. The stuff that holidays are made of. Although, YES, there are some holiday decorations to put you in that festive mood. Plus, it has Mel and Bruce in roles that fit them well...unlike much of their newer stuff that lacks the impact of these movies.
