This took me hours so I hope I may help settle the controversy
– The film opens with [Jungle bells rock!](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qnh4JgjW6w) Why is that? Because it is Christmas time through the film! So what if a girl throws herself out of a window instantly after the tune. Still counts
– [Murtagh’s house](https://i.imgur.com/zUJbaYE.png). What’s that within the background? A tree AND stockings! Hell yeah it’s.
– Before Riggs tries to [kill himself](https://i.imgur.com/Qe44U0A.png) with a gun, he seems to be watching [Bugs Bunny’s Looney Christmas Tales](https://i.imgur.com/vSUfsL0.png). Now, may which have triggered his suicidal tendencies? Who is aware of, however he was watching it nonetheless
– In the police station, a bunch of officers are all working towards [Silent Night](https://i.imgur.com/kLzQzrH.png). Why else would you observe a carol, huh?!
– This father needs [JUSTICE](https://i.imgur.com/vxGxdeY.png) to be served from his Vietnam buddy Murtagh, however earlier than that have a look at the tree and reef within the background
– The exterior of [Murtagh’s house](https://i.imgur.com/WK5N054.png), midway by way of the film. Still Christmas! Santa on his roof and all
– In this pic [Murtagh is distressed](https://i.imgur.com/5aFLbJH.png) to search out his daughter has been kidnapped. However, the person has his Christmas lights on at night time, so..
– In this scene, [Riggs](https://i.imgur.com/8Z2B1q9.png) suggests killing all people beneath the pink glow of Murtagh’s Christmas lights. Still Christmas…
– Gary Busey is greeted with this [lovely greeting](https://i.imgur.com/u9v3x7m.png) within the ultimate act of the film. This is after he shot up the home with an assault rifle, thoughts you. When he shot the TV he shouted “IT’S CHRISTMAS” in order that’s sufficient affirmation for me
– After a Police automobile mysteriously crashes into Murtagh’s home, [this is the end result](https://i.imgur.com/iGO7aOv.png). Whilst they do not have a correct entrance door, they nonetheless embellished it. And Murtagh goes over for Christmas dinner
– Finally, the film ends with “I’ll be house for Christmas” by [Elvis](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBPM8sQuXLI)
So there you will have it! A film set fully round Christmas, begin to end. A “Christmas Movie” if you’ll
