Completely agree with you that this is a Christmas movie. And also one of my favorite action movies — and just plan favorite movies period. If your story is about reconciling with a spouse/signficant other and you set it during Christmas — then it is a Christmas movie no matter how many helicopters fall off the building and people are shot. Thanks for sharing. My take is at


we watch it at Christmas and other times during the year


Oh yes this is definitely a Christmas movie. I haven’t watched it recently but my son and his wife also watch it every year. It has long been one of his favourite films. I first watched it because hey Bruce Willis was in it and I was a devoted fan of Moonlighting, I really enjoyed it and we watched it regularly.
Thanks for this post Sharon, I must get that book you mention for my son – he will love it.
Merry Christmas to you and your family and a very happy New Year.
