One Choice: 2000s Christmas Movies

Inspired by the popular online game that asks people to choose one movie from a group of four, One Choice… is pretty much the same game. Readers will be given four similar movies and asked to choose one. Now here’s the catch, the other three movies will be gone forever, wiped from your brain as if they never existed. Are you ready to theoretically live in a world where you have The Empire Strikes Back but not Star Wars or Return of the Jedi? What about the 1989 Batman movie but not Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight? The choice is yours, screenager, so choose wisely.


Christmas is almost here, but you have a choice to make first — which 2000s Christmas movie below would you gladly pick to rewatch for the rest of your life while the other three cease to exist in your mind? Good luck!

Here are the 4 Movies:

How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
