WHO'S NAUGHTY AND NICE Bruce Willis, Bonnie Bedelia, Alan Rickman

PREMISE McClane (Willis), who has just arrived in L.A. to attend his estranged wife's company Christmas party, takes on the ruthless terrorists who have commandeered his wife's office building to steal millions from a vault. And did we mention he's barefoot?

BAH, HUMBUG! MOMENT Well, the execution of two hostages and a strangulation by metal chain aren't exactly festive.

MEMORABLE QUOTE As a SWAT team closes in on the building, one of the baddies warns his comrades: ''All right, listen up, guys. 'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except for the four a---holes coming in the rear in standard two-by-two cover formation.''
