Celebrating Nick and Nora: "Serve the nuts. I mean, serve the guests the nuts."

"Serve the nuts. I mean, serve the guests the nuts" - Our far-flung correspondents:

In the Charles' world, a world that I choose to believe is not fantasy, faults are never irritating. Nick's vices are referred to with a sarcasm that enjoys an opportunity for gentle jabbing. Nora's Lucy Ricardo-esque attempts at sleuthing are patiently foiled. But these aren't serious problems. Nothing threatens the Charles' union. They are a calm, but never dull duo. Sometimes, the center will hold.
Timely, the story unfolds over Christmas so this is a good time of year to revisit a classic.  So far, my 2010 Christmas movie list is:

  1. Die Hard
  2. Christmas Vacation
  3. Love Actually
  4. The Thin Man
  5. It's a Wonderful Life
It's been a few years, but I don't miss A Christmas Story yet -- maybe next year.
