Can You Guess Which Christmas Movies Were the Highest-Grossing of All Time?

Christmas is finally approaching, calling for cute pajamas and movie nights. The atmosphere is festive and light, families are getting together, and a new year is approaching with a promising fresh start. So for those of us who love to enhance the spirit of Christmas with the cheesiest Christmas movies, here’s a list of the most major box office successes.

Bad Santa

Bad Santa was filmed during the summer of 2002 in and around California and was released to theatres in 2003. The movie came out as a Christmas black comedy written by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa and directed by the talented Terry Zwigoff.

The movie was taken very well by critics and by the public, earning more than $76 million all over the world and $60 million domestically. The film also made a very high rating on Rotten Tomatoes, scoring 78%.

Jingle All The Way

While Jingle All The Way stars the one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger, something about the movie didn’t fly very well with critics, especially on Rotten Tomatoes. The 1996 Christmas movie follows the life of Howard, a father who promises his son to get a Turbo-Man as his Christmas present.

The task becomes challenging when another father, Sinbad, makes the same promise to his son, and the two end up fighting for the toy. Even though the movie is hilarious, critics believe that Schwarzenegger acts with an uneven tone throughout the movie. Still, the film certainly made it in the US box office, scoring a whopping $70,000,000.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

For those of us who love stories that get completely out of hand, this movie is perfect. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation Stars Chevy Chase as Clark Griswold, who promises his family an amazing Christmas.

The Griswold family planned a huge Christmas party with friends and family, but somehow, Clark manages to mess it up to the extent that was so serious, that Chevy Chase actually broke his pinky in real-life while performing one of the movie’s ‘angry’ scenes. The movie was so successful that it easily reached second place in the box office, grossing $11,750,203 only during the film’s opening weekend.
