Is Fred Claus, Starring Brooklyn Heights Resident Paul Giamatti, The Next Holiday Classic?

December 8, 2012

Back in 2010, Brooklyn Heights Blog asked if 2007’s Fred Claus was destined to be the next flick to rise to the level of Holiday Classic. Sure, it was a pretty cheeky question then but today in light of Broadway musicals based upon Elf and A Christmas Story anything seems possible. Here’s what BHB wrote two years ago:

With a plethora of cable networks available, the traditional holiday movie choice has moved beyond just It’s a Wonderful Life. Jean Shepherd’s classic A Christmas Story was the first flick to get the wall-to-wall marathon treatment on cable; Scrooged and Elf followed. Now Fred Claus, starring Vince Vaughn, Kevin Spacey and Brooklyn Heights resident Paul Giamatti, seems to be vying for perennial status. Do you think it’s worthy?
