5 Movie Villains Who Hate Holiday Cheer More Than Scrooge by ROSE CURIEL
Ah, holiday movies. There's nothing better this time of year for that warm, fuzzy feeling. But what would any heartwarming tale be without a dastardly character (or two) making trouble along the way? (Frankly, they'd be pretty boring.) So let's pay homage to the underappreciated heroes of the season: the villains!
Mr. Potter, It's a Wonderful Life
Cranky old Mr. Potter is so preoccupied with counting his dollar bills that he simply won't cut George Bailey a break. Not only does he refuse to give George handouts, but when $8,000 for the Building and Loan goes missing, Mr. Potter secretly stashes it for himself! Does the man have no soul?
Eddie, Christmas Vacation
Cousin Eddie is the worst kind of holiday villain: the relative who comes to visit and won't leave! When he's not emptying sewage in the Griswold's front yard, he's kidnapping Clark's boss. But we'll forgive him since the guy actually means well.
The Abominable Snowman, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
He may not be the brightest yeti, but what the Bumble lacks in smarts, he makes up for with persistence. He won't stop chasing down Rudolph and his glowing red nose, and later traps the reindeer and his family in a cave. Not to worry, there's a happy ending, of course: by the end, he's putting the star on the Christmas tree.
The Grinch, How the Grinch Stole Christmas
The Grinch wants nothing more than to steal the children of Whoville's toys to prevent Christmas from coming. But what else do you expect from a creature with a heart two sizes too small?
