19 December 2014, 08:01

Cape Town – Tis the time for families to get together. Nothing beats some family bonding around the dinner table in the house you grew up in.

And while family time is good for the soul let’s be honest it can become a bit too much especially when someone had a bit too much to drink and stars spilling those family secrets.

Rest assured there are families more dysfunctional than yours especially in the movies.

The dysfunctional families in these movies will make you feel better about yours!

This Christmas

An elder brother returns home after four years, a secret wife and sibling rivalry makes for entertaining viewing.

Four Christmases/Anywhere But Here

This movie is anyone’s Christmas nightmare. Imagine having to visit all four of your divorced parents' homes? That’s one long day.

Home Alone

The Family Stone

In this Christmas take taking your significant other to meet the family doesn’t go according to plan.

Bad Santa

Okay so this one is not about a dysfunctional family but no list would be complete without this movie. This Santa epitomises dysfunction.
