Is “It’s a Wonderful Life” your favorite film of all time? Could you spend hours arguing over whether “Die Hard” is a Christmas movie? (It is, by the way).
If you can’t get enough of holiday movies, CableTV.com wants you to be this year’s Chief of Cheer, KTLA sister station WXIN reports.
The company will pay someone $2,500 to watch 25 holiday movies in 25 days. You will be required to “record your thoughts” on each film before you get paid.
“It doesn’t matter to us when you watch the movies — it can be with your family at dinner, while you’re constructing a gingerbread house, or even while you’re at your desk ‘working,'” writes CableTV.com.
And you don’t need to dust off your DVD collection to participate! CableTV.com will gift the Chief of Cheer the granddaddy of streaming packages: one-year subscriptions to Netflix, HBO Max, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Apple TV+ and Hallmark Movies Now.
You must be at least 18 years old and eligible to work in the United States. Applications are open until 11:59 p.m. (MT) on Dec. 2.
What’s your favorite Christmas movie?
While everyone has their favorites, some are more popular than others.
Movie rating site Rotten Tomatoes’ 100 Best Christmas Movies of All Time list is topped by the 1940 Ernst Lubitsch film “The Shop Around the Corner,” followed by “Miracle on 34th Street” (1947). To formulate its list, Rotten Tomatoes ranked films by their Tomatometer scores, with “Certified Fresh” (75% or higher score by at least 80 critics) films ranked first.
A 2020 YouGov survey polled 1,200 U.S. adults to determine their favorite Christmas films. Here, 1990’s family holiday classic “Home Alone,” starring Macaulay Culkin, ranked in the top spot. “It’s a Wonderful Life” ranked second.
