Christmas Movies for Men

Guys, we know how it is. The weather is cold, snow’s coming, and at night, you either want to curl up with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, or you are ready to watch a great Christmas movie. The lady in your life gets excited, because you two can watch it together! She quickly grabs her favorites: The Holiday, Love Actually, The Family Stone, While You Were Sleeping, The Preacher’s Wife, and  A Boyfriend For Christmas. She challenges you to find something better.

NOW IS THE CRITICAL MOMENT! If you freeze, you will be stuck watching Denzel romance Whitney Houston, and end up getting in trouble for “ruining the most romantic part”.

Never fear, we at iUMBC have come to your rescue again. Here are ten quick choices to counteract the feminine Christmas takeover. No need to thank us, but if you want to, feel free to choose from the Ultra Manly Gift Guide.


  • Die Hard

    I feel like this one doesn’t need any explanation. If she claims it is not a Christmas movie, just say, “Now I have a machine gun. Ho-Ho-Ho”


  • Santa’s Slay

    What if Santa wasn’t really a nice guy at all? Also, what if he were Bill Goldberg? Curling fans will find this especially awesome.


  • It’s a Wonderful Life

    Anyone who says this is not a manly Christmas movie doesn’t understand George Bailey at all.


  • Lethal Weapon

    Remember when Mel Gibson wasn’t weird? Watch for the shoot out at the Christmas tree farm. Warms my heart every time.


  • Gremlins

    What’s more Christmas than evil little stuffed animals?


  • Home Alone

    “This is ridiculous. Only a whimp would be hiding under the bed…but I can’t be a whimp. I’m the man of the house.”


  • Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

    Nothing more need be said


  • Christmas Vacation

    Chevy Chase in his prime. Would that we could all have a Griswold family Christmas.


  • Christmas Story

    You might want to wait on this one. TBS will be showing it all day on Christmas Day. In my house, it will be on every TV.


  • Ernest Saves Christmas

    Don’t knock it if you haven’t tried it. Ernest is a classic for guys of all ages, know what I mean, Vern?


  • Black Christmas

    Christmas in a sorority house. What could go wrong?


  • Silent Night Deadly Night

    Santa brings presents for all the good girls and boys. He also punishes the naughty ones.


Happy watching my friends, and please, let us know your favorite manly Christmas movies to watch. If we work together, we may never have to watch Hugh Grant again.
About john

After an unfortunate run in with a narwhal forced early retirement from his life as a pirate on the Seven Seas, John turned his attention to his second love, Mountain Watching. He is currently fighting to prove that Mount Huascaran has moved 3 feet to the left in the past year, and that one night he saw it crying. When he is not watching mountains, John can be found practicing for the National Caber Toss competition, having staring contests with jaguars, or helping little old ladies cross busy streets.
