Everything Wrong With It's A Wonderful Life In Merry Christmas Minutes
It's A Wonderful Life is an all-time classic. It's fantastic in almost every way. But even fantastic movies have sins. So in the spirit of giving that comes with the holiday season, we're giving the film some sin-counting. And to anyone shocked we would sin a movie this beloved and revered... well, you must be new here.
Next week: mid-aughts scary sins and recent scary sins.
Remember, no movie is without sin! Which movie's sins should we expose next?!

    Everything Wrong With 'It's A Wonderful Life'? Jeremy, I'm sorry mate, it's been a great ride, but I just can't be seen with you anymore. Because, any moment now, demons are going to come swarming out of drains Ghost/Pennywise-style to drag you down to hell.

    George Bailey lost $8000 of his customers money, and was seen kissing a woman that wasn’t his wife. No financial institute can spend segregated funds. George Bailey was headed to prison, I don’t care how much the townspeople gave him. Potter is absolute piece of shit for keeping that money. George Bailey is headed to jail and he tells the cops where he is at. His evilness exceeds the Thanos fingersnap.

    Should’ve gave points for when Mary tells Martini to start serving wine to the people at her house. What, because he owns a bar it’s his job to serve people drinks whenever he visits people’s houses? That always bugged me.

    This movie was...confusing to follow when I watched it for the first time. But I also saw why it's such a classic. The ending where the town comes together at George's house literally made me cry.

    You missed a sin that a lot of other people I've mentioned it to also seem to miss. Clarence says Harry Bailey died at the age of 9 but when you look at the tombstone it reads 1911-1919. According to that he could've only been 8 years old.

    This movies apparently hands out more wings than a KFC joint... it that a lie, or is KFC out of business?

  • stogucheme

    To be fair, the angelic alt universe was probably a lie. They were trying to convince him that his life was worth living, after all.

    Gotta ask though. What action did his existence cause to change the weather (snowing when alive and clear skies when not (sure this is supposed to be a way for the audience to know what reality he is in before the character but It's surely still a sin, right?))?

    Have you sinned The Butterfly Effect?

  • spectrevampire

    I think it was mentioned in this video, but what exactly was Clarence's plan before George gave him the whole "pretend you were never born" deal? It seems his M.O. at first was essentially to just pat his shoulder and go "naw, you're good" over and over. And why did he feel the need to jump in the river in the first place? Couldn't he have just called out to George from a distance?

    • retnavybrat

      If George was intent on committing suicide, he might not have been aware of all but his immediate surroundings.

    You missed the most obvious sin in the entire movie! Clarence said that Harry died at age 9. His headstone said he lived from 1911 to 1919. So unless Harry was Korean, somebody done screwed up in the movie, and you guys done screwed up in this video.

  • spartus

    again..who takes ...counts $8,000 full of bills and putting in an envelope the local bank...again a lot of sh$t full of money in 1930s ... evening 2020 that a lot of loan money ..

    What really didn't make sense was why Uncle Billy was taking $8,000.00 from the Savings and Loan to deposit into Potter's bank? They had a room-sized safe IN the Savings and Loan, and should have kept money on hand to loan out. Just more crappy writing from Hollywood.

    What everyone fails to notice as the biggest BS flaw is, that a deficit is discovered at the building and loan, an arrest warrant is then issued, the media is contacted and all are waiting at George's house in what seems to be about an hour maybe 2 on Christmas eve. Computer banking does not exist back then so how does the auditor know whether the deposit was made on the same day or not and how is a crime determined within that same time frame? Potter's phone call has no proof to back up any claims yet all of these agencies rush to action to arrest George Bailey immediately? Again, all on Christmas eve?

    A couple pieces of constructive criticism: you talk too quickly, so that it's hard to follow and appreciate what you're saying and absorb the humor. And there should be a bit more of a pause between each 'sin' to separate the different streams of rapid dialogue. Also, the blurred edges on either side are distracting and unnecessary. And perhaps offer a little more context for each sin for those who aren't intimately familiar with the movie.

    OK, the "Mary is the real hero here" thing may be the single greatest epiphany ever offered up by CinemaSins. It's absolutely, 100% true and undeniable. And this is the first time it's ever occurred to me. In retrospect, it's also probably why I've had a thing for Donna Reed my entire life.

    Actually bars with alcohol were very common during the probation era so he would not be a wanted criminal they usually only went to the dealers that’s why a lot of bars in New York are hidden almost because they have not updated since.

    You missed one of the most glaring sins in this film that has always bugged me. In the cemetary scene where he sees his brother's tombstone, he goes there trying to find Martini who lives in "Bailey Park" the subdivision he helped create. Either George Bailey razed a cemetary to build "Bailey Park" or...well that's the only option, because in the alternate reality with him never born, his brother was buried there in 1919...So it obviously was a cemetary in 1919 and him being born or not wouldn't have changed the location of this cemetary, so we can only conclude that "Bailey Park" is built over a cemetary.
