Planes, Trains, and Automobiles - yet another movie that isn't technically a Christmas movie (it's really more Thanksgiving-related), but it's ability to be both hysterically funny and painfully heartbreaking (John Candy at his finest) makes it a perfect holiday season movie.
Loved it. Excellent survival film about a group of oil pipe workers stranded in the Alaskan wild after a plane crash. Scariest movie I've seen in a long time. Liam Neeson, and the rest of the cast, including Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo, Joe Anderson, Dallas Roberts and James Badge Dale do an excellent job. It's an action movie filmed like an indie with good strong heart. I'd buy it.
