Scrooged.

Great film.

Is there any other film that's been remade so many times with a decent outcome ? Can't think of one.

I was thinking Die Hard as soon as I saw the thread title but I see you already mentioned it. Bruce Willis movies in general make me think of Christmas, I presume because of the effect Die hard had on me.

I watched Elf for the first time the other day, just because apparently it has Zooey Deschanel in it.

Whoever that woman was looked nothing like her

Trading Places; Its always been on every Christmas. Seen it on TV every year for at least a decade now. Funny and never get bored of it.

Bad Santa is another that's been a favourite of mine of recent

A Christmas Carol (1984) with George C Scott - it doesn't show every year - it is however vastly underrated (probably because it was a made for TV film). This version is almost a horror film with it's portrayal of the ghosts and George C Scott gives a truly nuanced performance.

If it's shown I recommend yousee it - a very different feel than the usual versions, but probably closest to the book

I can only repeat the two already mentioned. Muppets Christmas Carol and Trading Places. It Feels like Christmas is a great song. Eddie Murphy was a hell of a comedy actor back then.

Eyes Wide Shut is a Christmas film.

It's 'A Wonderful Life', 'Love Actually' and, thanks for reminding me, 'Trading Places'. But 'White Christmas' would have been there wouldn't it.

I watched a well known blockbuster on the TV a few days ago and, playing in the background throughout, was that it was Christmas and the final scene was 'Christmassey' but, at the mo, I can't recall the film.
