Guys, you're gonna thank me for this one and I can't believe nobody picked it yet:Christmas in Connecticut (1945)
with Barbara Stanwyck, Sydney Greenstreet and Dennis Morgan. It's one of those snappy, snarky, fast-talking witty deals like Preston Sturges was famous for. Great fun and you never know what's coming next. Stanwyck is at her comic best in this, and it still manages to be romantic and heartwarming. If you're tired of all the usuals every xmas, this is your lucky day.
I'll throw in one more oft overlooked gem:One Magic Christmas (Disney/1985)
with Harry Dean Stanton and Mary Steenburgen. Not sappy, Stanton plays against type, heartwarming, and hell, it's got street hockey in it, what's not to like?
