I. Freaking. Love. Christmas Movies. Seriously I love the cheesiness and the warm fuzzies that come along with the ending of a Christmas movie. Even the sad Christmas movies end up in a good place because, duh, it’s Christmas. Admittedly, I’m disappointed that Netflix took off so many of the amazingly cheesy Christmas movies that it used to have, but luckily, there are some new ones and some old faithfuls to dive into this holiday season.
A CHRISTMAS PRINCE
Of course Netflix put out their own Christmas movie, and of course it’s adorable. I’m a huge fan of Rose McIver, who plays the main character in A Christmas Prince. She also stars in one of my favorite TV shows, iZombie.
This movie is about a journalist named Amber who is sent to a country called Aldovia to get the scoop on the prince who is set to take over the throne. Prince Richard is known in the tabloids to be quite scandalous and flaky, and Amber does everything she can to try and uncover the real story, including breaking into the royal home and posing as a tutor for the young princess.
It’s a super cheesy romance movie (as are most of the movies on this list). My favorite character is the sassy (but sweet) Princess Emily who finds out the truth about Amber early on in the movie, and the two of them become fast friends.
A CHRISTMAS KISS
I used to be a huge fan of Roswell, so I was pretty pumped to see Brendan Fehr’s face in this movie. This is a classic romantic comedy with a Christmas twist, and it’s absolutely adorable.
A Christmas Kiss is about a girl named Wendy who spontaneously kisses a guy in an elevator. That guy ends up being the boyfriend of her horrible boss. Let the drama ensue.
Amy Acker is an adorable human being that was a badass doll in the Dollhouse TV series. In Dear Santa, she plays Crystal, a woman who grew up with a silver spoon in her mouth. She loves spending her parents’ money, but they’re tired of her antics, so they cut her off until she gets her ish together.
Crystal stumbles upon a letter to Santa written by a seven-year-old girl named Olivia who wants a new wife for her dad. Her dad, Derek, ends up being the owner of a soup kitchen, and he already has a girlfriend, so hellooo love triangle.
A HOLIDAY ENGAGEMENT
Hillary is on top of the world with her newspaper gig and her perfect fiance, Jason, but when she loses both at the same time and realizes she’ll have to go to her family’s Thanksgiving celebration single and job-less, she gets desperate. She hires a man named David to pose as her fiance for a four-day trip, and I think we all know where this is headed.
A CHRISTMAS CRUSH
Georgia has been SOL when it comes to dating, so when she finds out that her high school reunion is happening just a week before Christmas, she jumps at the chance to go and convince “the one that got away” that they were meant to be. Of course, she makes another realization instead.
12 DATES OF CHRISTMAS
When Kate agrees to go on a blind date on Christmas Eve, it ends up being pretty dang disastrous. Unfortunately, she ends up reliving the same horrible day over and over again.
NAUGHTY & NICE
I can’t resist a cute Hayley Duff movie, and this one is no exception. This movie was extra, super, really cheesy. It’s about a pretty pretentious radio DJ named Pepper who goes a little too far on his radio show and is forced to temporarily relocate to a small town in Colorado and join forces with a sweet, hopeless romantic radio DJ named Sandra Love (played by Duff). And of course, opposites attract, right?
BACK TO CHRISTMAS
I would probably watch this movie just to look at Jonathan Patrick Moore’s face because helllllo. If you watch this movie, prepare yourself for some pretty horrendous acting, but once you get past that, it’s pretty dang cute. It’s about a girl named Ali who has officially survived a year after breaking up with her fiance. She meets this stranger who asks her if she’d do it all over again if she could (“it” being her reaction to her boyfriend after he didn’t propose to her when she thought he was going to), and she said she would. Next thing you know, it’s a year ago, and she has another chance, but naturally, what she thinks she wants isn’t what she wants.
What are your favorite Christmas movies?
