Do they say Merry Christmas in Die Hard?
Thereof, how many times is Christmas mentioned in Die Hard?
The word “Christmas” appears 18 times in the script, which is more than the words “explode” (4), “die” (5),”hard” (11), “shoot” (12), “kill” (13) and “blood” (13), although far fewer times than”gun” (73), “terrorist” (51) and “suddenly” (45).
Likewise, is Die Hard on this Christmas 2019? Die Hard is not on Netflix for Christmas 2019 with only A Good Day to Die Hard available on the streaming platform. And, as we all know, only Die Hard 2 and Die Hard with a Vengeance are worth watching.
In respect to this, is Die Hard considered a Christmas movie?
In 2010, Die Hard was voted as "The Greatest Christmas Film of All Time" by Empire. On December 24, 2017, screenwriter Steven E. de Souza stated on Twitter that Die Hard is a Christmas film. However, at his Comedy Central Roast, Willis declared "Die Hard is not a Christmas movie! It is a goddamn Bruce Willis movie!"
What does Die Hard have to do with Christmas?
People say Die Hard isn't a Christmas movie because the main thrust of the plot has nothing to do with Christmas. It's about terrorists trying to rob a building. But since these movies take place on or around Christmas, we call them Christmas movies.
