    I'll take Marshall, but my kid wants Balboa....he pulls out the five-movie package and watches it incessantly. Sick, I know.

    Unless you're Jewish, you don't go to the movies on Christmas.

    Or as a Jewish co-worker says on his last day of work before Christmas: "To my Christian friends, Merry Chistmas. To my Jewish friends, see you at the movies."

    Oh, but you do if you go to your parents house and everyone is asleep by 9 except dad, who wants to read in peace and quiet.

    You go to the movies to save the marriage. :D

    We always go to the movies like Christmas afternoon. What else is there left to do after all the eating and gift opening?

    Because of the factual connection (basis).

    Ummm, no.
    I went one year, maybe 20 years ago. I was alone for Christmas, family wasnt in town, so I went by myself to see Grumpy Old Men... only time I;ve ever gone to the movies by myself too. And I am quite Catholic...

    You mean you're going to miss out on the Jets-Dolphins titanic struggle?

    Actually, since it's a tradition that I see a movie every Christmas I'm kind of in the same boat (although I have to work that night) ... another possibility is The Good Shepherd.

    Interesting (to me at least) that Rocky Balboa is listed at 102 minutes. Seems kind of short (for a Rocky movie).

    We Are Marshall is 120 minutes, I believe, and The Good Shepherd 160.

    Just to add to the mix ... on rottentomatoes.com, We Are Marshall has 3 fresh (good) reviews and 11 rotten (bad) ones. http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/we_are_marshall/

    Rocky Balboa has gained a couple of fresh reviews in recent days, and now has 10 fresh, 3 rotten. http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/rocky_balboa/

    The Good Shepherd: 8 fresh, 6 rotten. http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/good_shepherd/
