Not a useful suggestion, but the most successful holiday season movie screening I've managed was for Left Behind II: Tribulation Force, this amazingly awful Evangelical Christian rapture movie starring Kirk Cameron. The Jew!fail is actually spectacular- there's a scene at the 'Western Wall'- it looks like a back alley in Jersey City- where the firebreathing prophets Moses and Elijah proclaim Jesus the savior. Outside the Western Wall is a gate with a sign I can't even do justice to by describing: We just call it the Tohes sign.

I don't have any Chanukah movie suggestions. I obviously like "Yentl", and mostly like "The Chosen", but mostly I like it inasmuch as it's quite faithful to the book, and I wear that book very close to my heart. I generally second the recommendation of "A Serious Man"- it's probably my favorite 'Jewish' movie, but it's quite bleak- inspired by Sefer Iyov- and may not make great holiday fare.

A really nice Jewish romcom I watched recently was Crossing Delancey- Amy Irving and Peter Riegert as a couple negotiating cultural expectations and the tension between professional and romantic obligations. I liked it a lot- way more than I'd expected to.
