Is Die Hard a Christmas Movie?

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by daytonadan1983, Dec 24, 2010.

  1. My wife goes overboard during the holidays. After sitting through White Christmas four times, I popped in Die Hard because it's set on Dec. 24.

    She: That's not a Christmas movie.

    Me: Maybe, but Bruce Willis saving the Nakatomi building has as much to do with Jesus as Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye trying to jump Rosemary Clooney's and Vera Allen's bones.

    She backed down. Even watched the Colbert Christmas special that night as well.

    Die Hard an Xmas flick? Agree or disagree? Anyway, yipee-kay-yay, mother f------s......

    I can't find a clip, but Gary Busey screaming "It's Christmas!!" as he blows away Murtaugh's TV is classic.

    Another vote for yes. No question about it.

    This site doesn't just stop at calling Die Hard a Christmas movie - it says it's the best Christmas movie of them all.
  11. Absolutely it is.
