Silly Holiday Movies



Confession: I like holiday movies. I also enjoy made-for-TV holiday movies. Although not the Hallmark kind, where there are constantly crippled bunnies and children dying and towns without Christmas because the factory closed down. (Seriously, the holidays can be depressing enough, we don't need any more help, Hallmark Channel.) So what to watch while you're wrapping presents and keep losing track of the scissors and trying to avoid getting popcorn butter fingers on the paper? Enjoy some awesomely cheesy feel-good ABC Family original holiday movies, of course! Here are a few I enjoy:


Snowglobe

The fun story of a Brooklyn woman who is unsatisfied with her life - especially at Christmas. Will Angela discover her true perfect Christmas? (Spoiler: obviously. It's an ABC Family Original.)

12 Dates of Christmas

Kate is still hung up on her ex and also she's kind of a bitch. Can living Christmas Eve Groundhoug Day style teach Kate anything? (Spoiler: again - it's ABC Family. Of COURSE it has a happy ending. Duh.)

Holiday in Handcuffs

Trudie is a constant disappointment to her parents. One day she snaps - but is she the only one going through a life crisis?  Despite the unfortunate casting choice of Mario Lopez (seriously, so many better choices could have been made!) - it is a fun little movie. It does drag a bit in the middle, but other than that, it's got some good laughs.

Christmas Cupid

(Yet another) new twist on "A Christmas Carol," Christmas Cupid follows Sloane, a girl who excels at trading up and cares only about getting ahead. So, when a client bites it, she is visited by 3 boyfriends (past, present, future) to show her that constantly putting yourself first means you just might end up alone. Yeah, it's cheesetastic. Extra cheesy. Yet still, so much ridiculous fun.




(All of these are currently available for streaming on netflix.)
