Everybody loves Christmas in the movies. Well, everybody except the characters that don't. Most films set during the holidays (both the good and the horrifically bad ones) are filled with the requisite amount of cheer to draw in audiences and then send them giddily back out into the shopping malls, but there are a few exceptions.
