You know who loves It’s a Wonderful Life? Every person who’s ever had to write a list of the best Christmas movies of all time. Also, your mom. Your mom, my mom … all the moms. Beyond that, I don’t know a single person who cops to enjoying this movie, and, if nothing else, the box-office numbers from back when this freight train full of boring first pulled into the movie station kind of back that up. It raked in a mere $3.3 million, which probably seems like a lot in old-timey Jimmy Stewart money, but it wasn’t enough to keep the film from registering a $525,000 loss for the studio that initially released it. Yes, it was nominated for a bunch of awards, but trophies don’t make a movie fun to watch. Maybe It’s a Wonderful Life was an action-packed thrill ride back in the 1940s, but it is dull as fuck by today’s standards.
