    Nice list. I agree with Christmas Vacation in the #1 spot, but I can’t believe you left “It’s a Wonderful Life” off the list!

    • Mitch Bartlett says

      It would be on the list if the classic we all know as “It’s a Wonderful Life” was the version that was on Netflix Instant now. Unfortunately, the version on the service currently is an awful, made for TV, piece of dung.
