Ahh, the holidays. Despite all the chaos, commercialism, and over-consumption, this is the time of year we get to get spend some quality time with those special people we refer to as family.

My goal is to one day be that Uncle who shows up at Xmas with a different "Aunt" every year and a bottle of Chivas with a bow on top.

So, I have a chosen a very special family-oriented film for this this Happy Holidays version of Guess That Movie.

Good luck.

Would this be an all-American sort of holiday movie?

To paraphrase my enigmatic Uncle Jim, "Welcome to my responses."

Q: Would this be an all-American sort of holiday movie?
A: The cast is all-American, but does it uphold those core American values we all hold dear? No, this is not a Norman Rockwell image of American life.

Q: Is it the original Die Hard?
A: No, nor Die Hard 2 nor Die Hard with a Vengance. Bruce Willis does not even make a cameo.

Q: What decade was this movie released?
A: Ummm, let me skip to the next question.

Q: Was it made after 1967?
A: No, before that infamous year, the year when Santa decided to bring me a little brother for Xmas.

Don't look now, but I think Uncle Jim is spiking the eggnog.

kicza, I don't mean to be a member of the Guess That Movie Police, but generally you have to ask yes or no questions.

Is it time to open gifts already? What have we got here? Something from cousin Giselle:

Q: Okay since we're talking holidays, let's skip the sand question. is there snow involved?
A: Sorry, no snow. Nor rain that I can recall.

Cinenaut you shouldn't have.

Q: Is it animated?
The opening credits do contain crude animation/drawings, but the rest contains living breathing (for a while, oops, I'm skipping ahead) people.

Where did IronS go? I'm opening her gift:

Q: Was it made before 1960?
A: No, made after.

Looks like this is from both Hamano and Kicza:

Q: Does "Santa" appear in this movie? Ho ho ho, is Christmas involved?
A: Not Xmas time, and no Santa, though in one scene a visitor trys to enter the house through the...oh wait, another gift.

RHorsman sent this all the way from Michigan:

Q: Do people die in this movie?
A: You bet. In fact almost everyone dies.

Will someone wake up Grandpa. It's his turn to open gifts.

The fumes from my eggnog are making me dizzy.

I was actually thinking of this list, which I now notice is titled "hominivores." A family of cannibals, in other words.

I guess homnivore is not actually a word. It must be the eggnog.

I Googled "hominivore" and came up with two GreenCine hits! Woot!
