Theater Thursday: The Holiday Editions are back!

Want a fun box of Christmas goodies in the mail? Come join in on Star & I's Christmas Blog Swap Exchange ! We're sending out swap partner information shortly after Thanksgiving. 
It's Theater Thursday and the Christmas Editions are starting up again! For the past two years I've dedicated Theater Thursday's around this time of the year to the holidays! This year is no different. This week's featured movie is, All I Want for Christmas.
Hallie O'Fallon (Thora Birch) and Ethan O'Fallon (Ethan Embry) are about to spend their first Christmas as a divorced family. Their parents are divorced and they've been living with their mother and their grandmother for a year now. When Hallie visits Santa Clause at Macy's she asks for her family to be back together. 

Ethan (Embry) being her older brother doesn't want to see his little sister disappointed so he sets out on a mission to try to get their parents back together. Wanting it just as much as Hallie, Ethan sets out a plan including a few of his friends to try to trap their parents together in hopes that they'll realize they miss each other enough to get remarried. 

Ethan, Hallie and their friend Stephanie have got their hands full since the previous Mrs. O'Fallon is dating a man named Tony. They've also got to get their busy father to make time.

It's a great Christmas movie!

This sounds like a really fun movie, it's hard to believe I've never seen it before. Guess I have something new to see this Holiday season :)

i've never seen this one, but the real question here is what ever happened to Ethan Embry? He was so cute in Can't Hardly Wait.

I love this movie!! :) And dude.. I am SO wanting to sign up for the swap, but I'm TBD. I am crunching some SERIOUS numbers this year b/c my BFF is turning 30 around xmas, my mom is turning 60 two weeks before xmas.. and I have a nice gift I'm planning for Eric. So, my budget is not really super flexible this year. :( I'm still debating though! And normally, I'd be ALL over it!

How do you always know my favs.... You have a talent for picking movies that I talk about to people and they're like "WTF?" that makes me happy and not feel like such a Christmas-movie-watching-weirdo. :)

I can't believe you posted one of my all time favourite Christmas movies JMO! I love it when the character Halle sings that Christmas song with Lauren Bacall. I have it on DVD! .-))

Christmas is not Christmas without these movies. Hope you're having a great weekend!

Are you going to judge me if I tell you I don't watch Christmas movies (or listen to Christmas music)? But I'm sure it will change now that Emma is getting older. Does that help?

Tamara Nicole said...

Haven't seen it yet, but will! Love Christmas movies:-)
