Best Holiday Movies of All Time
By Paul O'Donnell
Christmas movies fall into two categories: the oldies you've seen a million times and the new ones that fancy themselves irreverent because Santa's drunk or does pratfalls on the icy front walk.

Try these 10 movies instead, a sampler of classics and obscurities that capture what we really go through, and ought to remember, at Christmas.
