Top Ten Not-Christmas, Well Sorta Movies #3 Lethal Weapon


Top 10 Not – Christmas well sorta movies Number 3

Christmas in July, already.  It’s hard to believe that we’re over halfway to the big day.  Time flies when you’re having fun.

Thinking about Christmas in July, it’s fun and it’s practice for some.  The staging point, a milestone and a little innocent fun to be had, but it’s not really Christmas.

That’s what got me thinking about movies set during Christmas, but not really about Christmas.  You know those movies that make a passing mention of the holiday or it’s outdoor scenes that are snow covered or you see the decorations, but it’s not integral to the plot.

So in honor of Christmas in July, I present the Top Ten Not-Christmas but Kinda Christmas Movies, now presenting…..

Lethal Weapon

What’s it about:

Martin Riggs is an L.A. cop with suicidal tendencies and Roger Murtaugh is the unlucky police officer with whom Riggs is assigned. Together they uncover a huge drug-smuggling operation, and as their success rate grows so does their friendship. (IMDB)

From the opening scene with Jingle Bell Rock blazing, we think we’re for a joyous ride through Yule time.  Bzzzzzzz, wrong, that thought ends early as the body count begins to mount.
