Top 5 Villians In Holiday Movies
Holiday movies! We all love them. and how in the end there is always a great lesson. But what about the villains? No heartwarming story would be the same without a villain. So let's check out the Top 5 villains of some of the most popular holiday movies.
"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"
He may not be the brightest yeti, but what the Bumble lacks in smarts, he makes up for with persistence. He won't stop chasing down Rudolph and his glowing red nose, and later traps the reindeer and his family in a cave. Not to worry, there's a happy ending, of course: by the end, he's putting the star on the Christmas tree. (Abominable Snowman scared me to death when I was a kid!)
Cousin Eddie is the worst kind of holiday villain, the relative who comes to visit and won't leave! When he's not emptying sewage in the Griswold's front yard, he's kidnapping Clark's boss. But we'll forgive him since the guy actually means well. One of my parents favorite holiday movie!
"How the Grinch Stole Christmas"
The Grinch wants nothing more than to steal the children of Whoville's toys, to prevent Christmas from coming. But what else do you expect from a creature with a heart two sizes too small? Jim Carrey was born to play the Grinch! Don't you agree?
The Wet Bandits, The Sticky Bandits, or whatever you prefer to call them, Harry and Marv are the dimwitted thieves that give Home Alone its slapstick humor. The more they put themselves in danger (hot irons to the face, nails in the feet, multiple pratfalls), the funnier the film gets. I watched this a million times with my nephew Alden when he was younger. Good times!
"It's A Wonderful"
Cranky old Mr. Potter is so preoccupied with counting his dollar bills that he simply won't cut George Bailey a break. Not only does he refuse to give George handouts, but when $8000 for the Building and Loan goes missing, Mr. Potter secretly stashes it for himself! Does the man have no soul? This is my favorite Christmas movie. I never miss watching it every year.
