My Top 5 Non-Traditional Traditional Christmas Movies

Mr. B & I have a list of must watch, traditional movies during the holiday season.  I'll share with you that list later.  
Today, I want to share with you what I consider to be the top 5 non-traditional traditional Christmas movies you need to add to YOUR must watch list in the next two weeks! Movies that when you hear of them, Christmas is NOT the first thing that comes to mind. 
Take my word for it though, each is sure to put you into the holiday spirit! 

In no particular order:

The Family Man - 2000 - Starring Nicholas Cage 

Scrooged - 1988 - Starring Bill Murray

The Ref - 1994 - Starring Denis Leary 

While You Were Sleeping - 1995 - Starring Sandra Bullock

About A Boy - 2002 - Starring Hugh Grant

Agree with me?  Disagree?  
Now’s your chance to let me know in the comments, what traditional non-traditional movies do I need to add to my list?

Click here to see where I may be partying this week.
Don't forget to come by on Tuesdays
for the link party.


  1. Kathe, I can't figure out how to see the rest of your post on my itty bitty iPod

    1. Thanks for the new link, got in. I'm a bit Christmas movie addicted and was anxious to see your list-which I love all on the list.

  2. The only one of these I have actually seen is The Family Man. I am gonna have to watch some of these before Christmas! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Should I admit that I've never seen any of those? My two Christmas favourites are The Family Stone and Love Actually.

  4. My friends D&T always watch Family Man before Christmas! I like While You Were Sleeping, but have never heard of The Ref. I guess I don't watch a lot of non-traditional Christmas movies. Maybe I'll start!

  5. Great list...my favorite is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation! I have to watch it a couple times every year...

  6. I love the Family Man!!!! :) Great pick there!

  7. love, love, love While you were sleeping! little known fun movie, especially if you have been to Chicago! I'll also nominate Holiday Inn!!

  8. The only one of those i've even seen before is While You Were Sleeping and i love it. I have one for you... "Courage Mountain" with a very young Charlie Sheen.... Its a Heidi and Grandfather story that concludes with Christmas and i think you'll like it! Hugs! deb

  9. The Ref is my absolute favorite! My husband and I crack up watching it every year. It's the best. I'll have to check out the other ones too :)

  10. Other than Scrooged, I haven't seen any of these. Thanks for some great movies ideas!!

  11. I love "While You Were Sleeping!"

  12. I'm with Gale, I love "While You Were Sleeping."

  13. Some of my favourite movies!! I love the Ref so much.

  14. I LOVE the Ref. It's my favorite Christmas movie along with The Family Stone. If these don't lift your spirits, forget it, you are hopeless. Thanks for reminding me to get them out and take time watch them.

  15. The Family Man is one of my all time favorites, just after The Holiday, and Love Actually! Thanks for joining our Twirl and Take a Bow Party! Hope to see you again next week!
