Christmas doesn’t have to be depressing. There are number of great Christmas comedies on Netflix that should cure you out of that depressing thought of having to spend time with our deranged family. We are pretty much sick of the all of the glitter, music and cheer so we thought we would post a few movies that appear on Netflix that should give you a laugh or two at Christmas time. In no particular order of course. We were a little taken back by the lack of selection. I mean where is Christmas Vacation?
1. Trading Places (1983)
Dan Aykroyd, Eddie Murphy and Jamie Lee Curtis. A rich man is turned poor and a poor man turned rich over a $1 bet. Set on the backdrop of Christmas. One of Eddie Murphy’s funniest movies.
2. Bad Santa (2003)
Billy Bob Thorton plays a hard drinking thief who along with his sidekick plan to rob a mall where they are working as Santa and his elf.
3. A Very Murray Christmas (2015)
