Snacember 7

Snack # 7:  Movies and TV Shows

Here are my favorite movies and shows to curl up with during the holidays... whether it is the perfect thing to pop in to watch with the family while something is in the oven, or with friends to while away a weekend day....add them to your Netflix list or buy below.  I can smell the popcorn, pizza, and chinese takeout already!

With the Family:

A Christmas Story

Such a treat, and it hasn't lost a step since it came out.

Babette's Feast



 A fun take on the classic, worth it for Carol Kane alone.

Toy Story 1, 2 & 3

A great marathon, I love them all.

With Friends:

Home for the Holidays

Hilarious guilty pleasure, especially for those with difficult family dynamics.

Beautiful Girls

Sweet subtle movie that gets me where I live.

Any Classic Chevy Chase movie... 

Seems Like Old Times,

Foul Play,


Modern Problems

nostalgic and hilarious

With your sweetie:

The Thin Man series 

Witty and wonderful and classic.


Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn.  That is all you need to know.

Modern Family

I love this show. Charming Suitor and I holed up with it the weekend after Thanksgiving, brilliant humor. LOVE.

With yourself:

My guilty pleasure go-tos that I don't need to share with anyone, and need no explanation:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Sex and the City

Sixteen Candles

Joe vs. The Volcano

Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House

Yours in Good Taste,
The Polymath


  1. What?? No Griswold family Christmas??? Christmas Vacation is always a must for me - and I agree with all your other wonderful selections!! Thanks for all these great Snacember ideas!!

  2. Such wonderful taste in movies and TV shows!!

  3. I absolutely love "Joe vs. the Volcano." The rest of this list is wonderful, too, but I must compliment a fellow "Joe" fan.
