I've seen a lot more of those than you have. I'm surprised you haven't seen "It's a Wonderful Life" (I'm sure we watched it when we were kids since it was shown 24-7 on TV.)

I think I missed a lot of the movies that were on when we were kids because by the time I would be interested in them, everyone else had already seen them. So we watched Dr. Who instead. :)
