Christmas Specials

December 2, 2009 § Leave a comment

Posted here are two of my favourite Christmas films. Well, one is a film and the other was a television special.

The first is Mixed Nuts from 1994, which takes place in Venice Beach, California where an unlikely group of people are thrust together through the failure of a suicide helpline and a shooting. Starring Steve Martin, Madeline Kahn, Juliette Lewis, Rita Wilson and a small part by Adam Sandler. Prepare to laugh at their misfortune! Below is part 1.

My second feature today is from 1988, Blackadder’s Christmas Carol, which is a spoof on the Charles Dickens’ classic, featuring Rowan Atkinson and Tony Robinson with Hugh Laurie (best known from House) narrating and playing various idiotic princes. Watch as Blackadder, normally wry and evil, plays the good, generous man and then witnesses his awful ancestors. Hilarity ensues. Here’s part 1.
