Christmas Day Movies: Your Best Bets in the Theater

The presents are opened, why not go watch a Christmas Day movie?

Looking for a way to relax on Christmas Day? Why not go watch a movie? It will get the kids away from all their toys and the abundance of cookies for a little while and give you a chance to sit down for a little while.

What are your best bets to watch on Christmas Day? And yes, most movie theaters are open!

If you are taking young children, you can see “Yogi Bear.” The movie is rated PG for some mild crude humor, but most of that seems to go over children’s heads.  “Tangled” is still out in most theaters, too.

If you have older children, consider watching “Tron: Legacy” or “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” or even “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” if you haven’t seen it yet or want to see it again. Then there is the opening on Christmas Day “Gulliver’s Travels.”

Relative in from out of town? Maybe one of them will watch your kids for a little while and you can sneak away to watch a movie of your choice instead! “Little Fockers,” “True Grit,” “The Fighter,” and “How Do You Know?” should be playing near you.

The critics didn’t like “Little Fockers,” but if you are looking for something that is pure entertainment, you might not care about their opinions.  They have me scared off and waiting for the dvd. Though I’d like to see “True Grit,” I’d rather watch something a little more heart-warming on Christmas Day, leaving “The Fighter” or “How Do You Know?” Though I think I’d probably want to see “Dawn Treader” or “Gulliver’s Travels” even without any kids in tow.

Do you ever go to the movies on Christmas Day?
