11 Best Holiday Movies (& Their Subtle Green Messages)

  • 7 of 11

“A Christmas Carol”

“A Christmas Carol” may be the most re-made Christmas film of all time, and whatever your favorite version — George C. Scott, Patrick Stewart, Jim Carrey, Kermit the Frog — it never gets old. And while Scrooge is more concerned with his health and happiness than with the environment, the last-act epiphany that turns him into someone who cares about others is exactly the kind of wake-up call that inspires people to save the Earth for future generations.

How about "Scrooged" with Bill Murray and "A Christmas Story" with that little boy who wants a BB gun for Christmas?

Green, authentic, caring - these are humanity's feel good factors, which is what makes these films caress a common nerve.
