The Santa supremacy: Peter Bradshaw's top Christmas movies (A thoughtful case for "Trading Places")

The Santa supremacy: Peter Bradshaw's top Christmas movies | Film | The Guardian:
The smart thing about Trading Places is that it conjures up the 'family' trope of the Christmas movie, not in the usual sense, but by suggesting that, in combining to combat the Duke brothers' evil, Murphy, Aykroyd, Curtis and Elliott have become a sort of family themselves. If, as a Christmas treat, I was made controller of BBC1 and was allowed to choose what film to schedule at 5pm on Christmas Day every year, it would be Trading Places.
