Better Together: Perfect Holiday Film Pairings

The weather outside is frightful… something something…I’ve got some corn for popping…

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

Movie night!

Holiday season is delightful but exhausting. There’s many-a-night that I’d rather snuggle up with a Snuggie and a film at home. Why should I bundle up and schlep out in the rain, when there are so many great movies I can watch at home? Especially with a streaming media box like the Xbox 360. Renting a movie takes less time than popping the popcorn to go with it. Movies are inexpensive as well – as little as 99 cents for holiday favorites.

There are a ton of holiday movie lists out there if you’re looking for something to watch. There are lists for kids, lists for singles, and lists for adults. None of these lists address the issues we have when choosing films in our home. When it comes time to renting a movie, arguments ensue. Half of our family is G and the other half is PG13/R. The only compromise is a double feature.

We all watch the “family friendly” film and then when the little kids go to bed, we move on to more adult titles.

With all the holiday movie choices out there, I thought it might be fun to come up with the perfect list of Holiday film pairings. Some are a little naughty, more are nice…

Here’s how to enjoy these pairings: Watch the first title with your kids, and then enjoy the second without them (or watch both with your older kids).

Rudolph with your nose so bright… we’re watching Die Hard later tonight!

Do you have any titles to add to this list of suggestions for parents to enjoy with (and without) kids?
