The Worst Gifts in Our Favorite Holiday Films | IMDbrief


– [Narrator] Ready or not,
here come the holidays. (suspenseful music) (screaming) On this “IMDbrief,” we break down the worst gifts ever given in our favorite holiday movies. – Almost finished. – Almost finished, what
else there’s gonna be? You gonna dip it in yogurt? – [Narrator] Ha, now we’re talkin’. Sometimes a gift can’t live up
to its extra fancy wrapping. While other times you
found the perfect gift for someone special, just not
the right someone special. – I love you, I love you, I love you. – [Narrator] Buddy the
Elf wanted his dad dressed to impress, but he may have misread how intimate to be with family. – What’s that? – Intercom. – [Narrator] In the 1955 classic,
‘All That Heaven Allows,’ Kay and Ned thought they got
their mom the perfect present to help her through the wintertime blues, but they may need to
reflect on that purchase. – All you have to do is turn that dial and you have all the company you want, right there on the screen. Drama, comedy, life’s
parade at your fingertips. – [Narrator] Or perhaps
you’d like to give a gift that’s one of a kind. (squeaking) (gasping) – [Lynn] Oh god. – What is it? – No.
– [Randall] It’s your new pet. – [Narrator] Nothing teaches your kids about responsibility like their first pet. But consider a dog, a cat, or a hamster before you buy a Mogwai
like Gizmo in ‘Gremlins.’ Unless you wanna give the
gift that keeps on giving and giving and giving
and giving and giving. (growling) Speaking of gifts that keep on giving, Clark Griswold’s Christmas
bonus subscription to the jelly of the
month club wasn’t exactly what he expected from his
company’s wealthy CEO. So just before Santa
came down the chimney, he put in a request for something new. – I’m gonna look him straight in the eye and I’m gonna tell him
what a cheap, lying, no good, rotten four-flushing lowlife, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking! – [Narrator] And sometimes
there’s nothing wrong with the giver or the gift, but it’s the receiver who had
their eye on something else. – I want an official Red
Ryder carbine action, 200 shot range model air rifle. – You’ll shoot your eye out, kid. – [Narrator] Ralphie in
1983’s ‘A Christmas Story’ had his heart set on a rifle, but ended up seeing pink in
these charming bunny PJs. – Shut up, Randy. – You look like a deranged Easter Bunny. (laughing) – [Narrator] No matter
what you give or get, these holidays will be grateful if you stay glued to imdb.com/imdbrief.
