One of my great joys around Christmas time is watching Christmas movies. Not the classic ones like Miracle on 34th Street and A Charlie Brown Christmas, but the horrible, tacky, made for TV ones. Nothing brings a family closer than watching B actors go through every Christmas cliché in the book for an hour and a half in an aggressively mediocre rom-com. Do you know the movies I am talking about? E-Online even made a bingo card.
If you are looking for some high quality bad movies to watch, here are my suggestions:
- Holiday in Handcuffs– Starring Mellissa Joan Hart of Sabrina the Teenage Witch fame and dreamboat Mario Lopez, this movie originally aired on ABC Family, despite the fact that the premise is felony kidnapping. If that doesn’t put you in the Christmas spirit, I don’t know what will.
- Christmas Mail– About a woman who answers children’s letters to Santa.
- The Christmas Parade– A journalist from New York gets stuck in small town Connecticut. What could happen next? Pretty sure this one will help you win at bingo.
- A Princess for Christmas– Every girl’s dream. A mysterious relative appears to tell Jules that she and the niece and nephew she just became guardian of are to be whisked away to Europe to meet their royal relatives.
So, this holiday season, if you are looking for happy endings and plenty of laughs, you might consider checking some of these movies out, or just switch on your TV to the Hallmark channel. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas.
