Is “Die Hard” a Christmas movie? The film’s writer, Steven de Souza, says it is. To quote him, “If ‘Die Hard’ is not a Christmas movie, then ‘White Christmas’ is not a Christmas movie.” But the film’s star, Bruce Willis, disagrees. “‘Die Hard’ is not a Christmas movie! It’s a goddamn Bruce Willis movie!” he told the Hollywood Reporter. Valid point.
Whatever side you choose, this action thriller about a cop who takes on a gang of robbers holding his wife hostage at her office party has earned a place in the holiday canon; right up there with “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “Home Alone.”
