Did you know that Jan. 6 is "Cuddle Up Day?" Here are three movies about the cold to throw on under a nice warm blanket while you cuddle up with your family.
In Arendelle, things have gotten a little bit chilly when Elsa, the queen with the magical ability to control snow, accidentally freezes over the kingdom. When Elsa runs away, it is up to her sister, Anna, to save her and help unfreeze the kingdom. In her quest to heat things up in Arendelle, Anna obtains the assistance of a magical mobile snowman named Olaf, an ice picker named Christoff and a reindeer with a lot of personality named Sven. Throw on “Frozen” with the kids to get out of the winter weather.
What would you do if you had to live the same day over and over again? In “Groundhog Day,” Bill Murray’s character, Phil Connors, finds out what he would do. Connors is a newscaster who goes to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to do a special report on the groundhog who supposedly predicts the weather. When the groundhog sees his shadow, Connors finds that he is living the same snowy day over and over. While repeating the same 24-hour period is torturous for Connors, it produces hilarious moments for audiences. Check out “Groundhog Day” if you’re in the mood for a comedy to escape the cold.
In “Home Alone,” Kevin McAllister is left behind when his family goes on a trip without him. Staying home alone, McAllister is confronted with the task of battling against two would-be burglars of his parents' home. The film is full of slapstick comedy, much of which has to do with frigid temperatures, and is sure to delight all those in the family who appreciate that brand of humor. Turn on “Home Alone” and be grateful that you are not trying to rob the McAllister home.
