Sure, Christmas is mainly about the kids. But that doesn’t mean us men can’t enjoy some Christmas celebration in our own way. Below are 5 of the manliest Christmas movies out there for your viewing pleasure. So go ahead. Spike the eggnog, light up your frankincense filled pipe, and sit back and enjoy some holiday viewing the way you’ve always wanted.
Bill Murray really tore it up in the 80s and 90s, didn’t he? That’s also when Scrooged came out, so expect the same maniacal Murray here too. Essentially A Christmas Carol without the Muppets or CGI Jim Carrey, Scrooged is its own warped take on the classic Charles Dickens tale—an adaptation rightly for adults more than little tikes.
4. Jingle All the Way
2. Bad Santa
1. Die Hard
Bruce Willis + Terrorists + Christmas Eve = Epic flick that will put you in the charitable holiday spirit. And by charitable we mean a warm donation of fist-to-face to anyone who gets in your way when you scramble last minute to buy a Bath & Body Works gift basket for your wife. Though Die Hard doesn’t spend too much time rocking around the Christmas tree other than a Xmas party being crashed and the well-known “Now I have a Machine Gun. Ho-Ho-Ho!” bit, there’s so much adrenaline-pumping action you’ll be permanently put on the naughty-man list if you don’t watch this movie over the holidays.
