7 Christmas Movies for Students

Watching fun holiday movies together is one of the best ways to spend vacations with your family. We've put together a selection of 10 New Year and Christmas movies for adults and kids that will help set the holiday mood.


The movies are quite entertaining, so we suggest you turn to the custom essay writing help or prepare your homework in advance.

"How the Grinch stole Christmas " (2000)

Ron Howard's film, based on the book of the same name by the famous children's author Dr. Seuss, tells the story of one of the residents of the fictional town of Cthograd, a green and hairy creature named the Grinch. Unlike the other townspeople who adore Christmas and celebrate it with a real swagger, he hates the holiday. This time of year reminds him of his loneliness and how the citizens of Kograd do not accept a monster unlike them and consider him an outcast. One day, tired of watching the happiness of the townspeople, he decides to ruin Christmas for everyone by stealing presents and removing decorations from houses. The Grinch was played by Jim Carrey. The film won an Oscar for best makeup in 2001. And in 2018, Illumination Studios released a cartoon remake of the story.

"Mr. Popper's Penguins" (2011)

"Mr. Popper's Penguins" is another good family movie starring Jim Carrey. This time the actor played not a sullen fictional creature, but quite a real man, whose character also leaves much to be desired. His character Tom Popper is a successful businessman, who has children coming to visit him for Christmas vacations.


The man is not a fan of Christmas, and he spends all the days before it in meetings with business partners. But everything changes when, on Christmas Eve, he inherits six penguins from his dead polar father. Now he has to simultaneously look after the animals, which no zoo can accept until after the vacations, take care of the children and deal with unresolved childhood traumas and romantic problems. The film about the importance of family is based on Richard and Florence Atwater's book of the same name, published in 1938.

"A Christmas Tale" (1988)

The New Christmas Tale is one of a dozen film adaptations of Charles Dickens' tale-tale A Christmas Carol. The film is set in the 1980s on Christmas Eve. The main character - American media tycoon Frank Cross, like his literary prototype Ebenezer Scrooge, refers to the holiday without much warmth and is more concerned with how to make more money during vacations. To re-educate Frank this Christmas, the ghost of the past - a joker cab driver from hell, the ghost of the present - an aggressive fairy, and the ghost of the future - a "living" skeleton in a black robe are taken on. The film was nominated for an Oscar in 1989 for best makeup.

"The Christmas Chronicles" (2018)

"The Christmas Chronicles" is a 2018 film directed by Clay Caithness and co-produced with the streaming service Netflix. The main characters are little brother and sister Kate and Teddy Pierce, who are left alone at home on Christmas night. Their mother was called away to work in an emergency, and their firefighter father died on duty months before the holiday. To entertain themselves somehow, the kids decide to stay up all night and videotape Santa's arrival. And they succeed. The good old wizard in the picture was played by Kurt Russell.

"Santa Clause" (1994)

The "Santa Clause" film series with Tim Allen, which began with this picture directed by John Pasquin, and released in 1994, is a true classic of Christmas cinema. The main character is Scott Calvin, a toy salesman who accidentally scares Santa Claus and runs him off his roof on Christmas night. While the old man is floundering in a snowdrift, Scott climbs into his sleigh and ends up at the North Pole. There he is met by the head elf, who offers the man to take Santa's place while he is unable to perform his magical duties due to injury. To fly around all the houses on Santa's list in one night, Scott takes his son, who is supposed to spend Christmas vacation with him, as his assistant. The film ranks as the 250th highest-grossing movie in U.S. history.

"Elf" (2003)

Before Jon Favreau joined Marvel Studios to work on several films about Iron Man and the Avengers, the director and actor directed the Christmas family comedy "Elf," starring Will Ferrell. In the story, many years ago on Christmas night, Buddy Hobbs, a little boy from an orphanage, accidentally crawled into Santa Claus' sack and went with him to the North Pole, where he was adopted by one of the elf helpers. Although Buddy was happy with his magical adoptive parents, when he became an adult and learned the truth about his origins, he decided to go back to the human world to find his birth father.

"Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" (2005)

The image of Christmas appears many times in Tim Burton's films, starting with the animated film The Nightmare Before Christmas. But the first truly Christmas or New Year's Eve non-animated film by Burton was the family-friendly fairy tale Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, based on the novel of the same name by Roald Dahl. According to the plot, Charlie Bucket - a boy who happily, but very poorly, lives in a ramshackle house with a dozen different relatives - on Christmas Eve wins a "golden ticket" - a pass to the mysterious Chocolate Factory Willy Wonka. Along with Charlie, four other children will go to the factory - all of the children, according to Wonka's assurances on the passes, will receive a lifetime supply of chocolate after the tour, and one lucky child will even be the winner of a special and interesting prize.


Tim Burton's film about the value of family was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Costumes category in 2006, and a separate Wonka film about the chocolate mogul's youth, starring Timothy Chalamet from director Paul King, is scheduled for release in 2023.
