Here’s a nice topical story for you: Bruce Willis has weighed in on the argument on whether action classic Die Hard is a Christmas movie or merely a movie set on Christmas Eve.
During his Comedy Central roast – where the likes of ex-wife Demi Moore poked fun at everything from his acting to baldness – the John McClane actor proclaimed: “Die Hard is not a Christmas movie. It’s a god damn Bruce Willis movie!”. (via Variety)
- Some people are saying Die Hard is not a Christmas film and people are REALLY mad
- Die Hard is looking for a young John McClane to star alongside Bruce Willis

And half of the internet considered the debate settled: Die Hard, the film originally released in July 1988, is definitely not a Christmas movie.

But the other half? They weren’t ready to give in, rejecting the claims of the movie’s lead actor…

Will we ever be able to bring the two sides together? Is there a peaceful compromise to this Twitter war?
