For every Miracle on 34th Street, or Elf, or Die Hard, there’s a I’ll Be Home For Christmas or Four Christmases, or some movie that you know was greenlit because holiday movies are either Oscar Bait or something that people will see with family because there is only so much fun family time before people start turning on each other.
Look, I LOVE holiday movies. Even terrible ones that star Christina Milian and are set in a snow globe. Or movies that involve ridiculous conceits like rich philanthropic women finding “Dear Santa letters” and trying to fulfill a little girl’s wish for a mom for Christmas (Yes, this is a thing that exists, and it stars Amy Acker. I could not look away and I watched about 95% of it.)
It hurts me that I’ve missed that masterpiece.
Share some of the worst holiday movies you’ve endured below! I still feel like I need to apologize to my dad for making him to pay to see an Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad movie in theaters, but I was nine, so what did I know?
