The Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis was taped on Saturday night and Jeff Ross, Edward Norton, Cybill Shepherd, Martha Stewart, Dennis Rodman, Nikki Glaser, and Demi Moore roasting the Hollywood actor. However, besides the Weinstein and Trump jokes from the roast, the most important detail to come out of the special is that Willis finally weighs in on whether Die Hard is a Christmas movie or not.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Willis ended the Comedy Central roast by declaring that “Die Hard is not a Christmas movie!” Yippee-ki-NO! If I may be so bold, the great Bruce Willis is wrong. Die Hard is a Christmas movie. Even Steven E de Souza, the screenwriter of Die Hard said that the festive film is a Christmas movie.
Die Hard, which is a movie that revolves around a Christmas party at Christmas attended by “Holly” Gennero McClane and is aired every Christmas, is for some odd reason hotly debated on whether or not it is, in fact, a Christmas movie. It is. If it’s not a Christmas movie than why is Fox offering a special Die Hard 30th Anniversary Holiday Blu-ray that is decorated like a festive Christmas sweater? And why is Fox giving away Die Hard-themed Christmas cards at the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con? Because it IS a Christmas movie and everybody knows it, those who say otherwise are wrong. That even goes for the great Bruce Willis.
Maybe Bruce Willis can get educated on the topic and read these 10 reasons why Die Hard is not only a Christmas movie, but the BEST Christmas movie. I’m kind of taken aback that Bruce Willis is not a Die Hard Christmas movie truther and will stand on the wrong side of history.
