    There's one scene where Stewart runs through the town wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. And the last scene of the movie there is a Christmas tree - and the last line of the movie references a bell that is hanging on the tree.

    That's it. The rest of the movie has zero to do with Christmas.

    I’ll carry on with the swerve then. Whenever I mention I haven’t seen it I’m met with a look of complete disgust.

    It's a great movie. Just not a Christmas movie.

    Marv brings the laughs. It also has a cameo by the most entertaining president of all time.

    It's based on a true story rather than actual documentation.

    If I were including documentaries I'd have put in the recent Star Wars series as Mrs Beard and I go see them the weekend after Christmas as a holiday tradition.

    Scrooged is criminally under rated. Maybe Bill Murray's best performance.

    I always get winter hay fever when I watch it for some reason.

    And I'm definitely in the Die Hard is not a Christmas film.

    Jason’s just an asshole that can’t appreciate quality entertainment. Elf is awesome.
