I don't understand the fascination with it. Its a classic and I guess I can understand why, but personally I just don't find the movie funny at all. The leg lamp scene is insufferable and seeing so many people on the news actually BUYING a leg lamp as a gift for christmas….I mean really people? I can understand why people like it but to me its just….hard to watch.
But I personally don't like a lot of christmas movies. There just aren't many good ones. Elf and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation are probably the only ones I will EVER watch again. It;s been a long time since we had a good christmas movie released. Everything is animated during the holiday season now.
