Not-so-Christmassy Christmas movies?

question blockI was listening to Strange Love last week and the topic of Christmas movies came up–specifically, not-so-Christmassy Christmas movies.

I might add Brazil to the list. I’m having trouble thinking of any other examples, though.

Do you have a favorite not-Christmas Christmas movie?
