    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    I keep asking this today and I haven't gotten an answer. If Die Hard is a Christmas movie, does that mean Trading Places is also a Christmas movie?

    Most of the movie takes place during the Holiday season.

    I remember that aspect but did they refer to it much? I donít recall any specific reference. I think die hard gets it from the closing scene on the ground when the officer knows he can still do his duty if the need arises and then the closing theme.

    I havenít seen Trading Places in decades, but the most memorable thing(s) about the film was Jamie Lee Curtisís rack.

    Dawn of the Dead
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
