Christmas Day 2008 has a number of big movie releases. After the gifts are opened and the dinner is gone, you have a great selection of movies to pick from. Here’s what’s opening Christmas Day:

Marley & Me

Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston star in the movie about a lovable but wild Lab. Based on John Grogan’s book about his Labrador retriever, the movie will be a family favorite. As the owner of a giant yellow Lab, I am looking forward to seeing the movie with my family.

Bedtime Stories

Adam Sandler stars as Skeeter Bronson, a hotel handyman whose life is changed forever when the bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew start to mysteriously come true. This adventure comedy flick looks like a hit for family entertainment!

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Based on a classic 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards. Starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, the movie has received raves from the critics and has been nominated for several awards.  As for me, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was put on my must see movie list when I heard Brad Pitt was in it.


Tom Cruise stars in the suspense film, based on the true story of Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg and the daring and ingenious plot to kill Hitler. Valkyrie looks like it's either really good...or really bad. Just a personal opinion, not a professional review!

Do any of these look good to you? What do you think?
