4. Last Holiday
With three weeks left to live, Georgia Byrd (Queen Latifah) spends Christmas and New Year's Eve the way we all wish we could: with base-jumping, gourmet food, shopping sprees all enjoyed in a gorgeous European locale. What better way to (vicariously) spend a holiday? You'll both get a kick out of the adventures and the nutty hotel staff, and watching this might just give the two of you some ideas for spicing up your next vacation.
Cuddle factor: 3. Georgia trades hesitance for extravagance when she believes she's dying. Nothing puts what really matters (like your relationship) in perspetive like death, so cuddle close and appreciate what you have right now.
Will Ferrell's holiday enthusiasm is infectious, and nobody is immune. The sight gags and slapstick will keep him (and you) entertained; beyond the laughs, you'll find real heart in this film.
Cuddle-factor: 3. Will Ferrell courting Zooey Deschanel will make you want to get closer to your own elf, er, man.
6. The Santa Clause
It's time to cash in for watching Reindeer Games. He won't put up much of a fight, though, because this Tim Allen movie is funnier than any Home Improvement episode, pinky-promise. There's your typical dose of holiday magic, but with some real-life complications mixed in, and watching Tim's character, Sean Calvin, try to handle it all is both heartwarming and humorous. He'll love it, but he might not admit it.
Cuddle-factor: 2. The elves are nice and the reindeer are adorable, but neither are particularly romantic.
7. It's a Wonderful Life
In this Christmas classic, George Bailey learns what the world would have been like if he'd never been born. If this movie had never been made, it would be hard to imagine such a powerful story of hope and kindness that's so perfect for the holiday season.
Cuddle-factor: 5. This is the ultimate holiday date movie. Plus, since it's on every year, you don't have to worry about missing the movie if you're too busy gettin' busy.
