Is 'Die Hard' A Christmas Movie? It's the holiday controversy that threatens to tear this country apart - should Die Hard be considered a Christmas movie? On the one hand, the movie does take place around Christmas. But on the other hand, it's far from a heartwarming holiday tale. Turns out most Americans don't consider it a holiday film.
A recent poll from the Hollywood Reporter found 62% of people said Die Hard isn't a Christmas movie, while only 25% said it is. And this probably won't surprise you - men were more likely to consider Die Hard a Christmas movie than women, and people aged 30-44 were more likely to say yes than people over 55.
