The Vacation

No one does Christmas like Nancy Meyers. Vacation is a romantic comedy that follows two women (Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz) who switch houses during the Christmas season to distance themselves from their recent heartbreaks. Diaz stays in Winslet’s ivy-covered, English countryside cottage and finishes up meeting Jude Law, so an enormous return on investment here. Across the pond, Winslet’s stay in l. a. leads her to Jack Black and everyone his earnest charisma. the vacation is predictable, but it’s a sweet and heartfelt film through and thru. Though all the actors are oozing charm, prepare yourself to be unexpectedly crazy with MVP Black by the top of the movie.

Star cast: Ed Helms, Chevy Chase, Christina Applegate, John Francis.

Jingle All the Way

Finally, a movie that focuses on what Christmas is basically about Prezzies!!! Jingle All the Way may be a ‘90s kids’ classic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad (hello, throwback!) as two somewhat absent dads, each trying to redeem themselves by buying their children the right Christmas present. On Christmas Eve, they both began to snag that year’s big gift, a Turbo-Man action figure, and upon discovering the toy is sold out, get down to a series of increasingly desperate escapades. The film was inspired by the real-life fervor for Cabbage Patch Kids and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers toys within the ’80s and ’90s, so there’s something comfortingly familiar about this story. It’s not an honest movie, per se, on the other hand again, not all beloved Christmas movies are! Jingle All the Way is high-energy, slapstick, and somewhat deranged, but you’ll feel transported to the ’90s by the storied cast that has Phil Hartman, Rita Wilson, and Jim Belushi.

Star cast: Arnold Schwarznegger, SInbad, Phill Hartman.

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale dares to ask the question: “What if Santa Claus was a horrifying demon that devoured naughty children in their sleep?” This Finnish Christmas horror (with a touch of a dark comedy) may be a must-watch for any film fan trying to find something new this season. Written and directed by Jalmari Helander, Rare Exports takes place within the harsh, isolated wilds of northern Finland, where families pass by snowmobile to succeed in each other and therefore the community relies on the yearly reindeer migration to survive. A young boy, Pietari, is the just one to sense the approaching danger when a close-by research center finds something within the ice, something that was seemingly trapped there intentionally, something like… Santa Claus. It’s a shocking and fantastic premise that works because of the director’s slow and methodical building of suspense and therefore the full commitment of the actors.

Star cast: Onni Tommila, Jorma Tommila, Ilmari Jarvenpaa, Tommi Korpela

The Happiest Season

The perfect Christmas rom-com for the 2020s, The Happiest Season follows Harper and Abby, a young couple headed to Harper’s family’s home for Christmas. the sole issue is that Harper has not told her family yet that she’s dating women, which leaves Abby in the uncomfortable position of getting to lie around herself for the vacations. The cast here is top-notch. Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis shine in their lead roles, and therefore the internet had an entire breakdown about how magnetic Aubrey Plaza is as Harper’s ex-girlfriend. Alison Brie, Dan Levy, Mary Holland, Victor Garber, and Mary Steenburgen round out the sparkling cast during this film written and directed by Clea DuVall. It’s much-needed and utterly modern to combat the vacation romance. And what’s more, it feels believable, which is nearly unprecedented for a Christmas movie!

Star cast: Kristen Stewart, Mackenzie Davis, Mary Holland, Aubrey Plaza.

The Mistle-Tones

Tia Mowry is Holly, a bubbly woman whose greatest dream in life is to hitch the local Christmas cover group, the Snow Belles, and spend every Christmas Eve… checks notes … singing at the mall. But when Holly is denied a spot within the group by Snow Belle queen and diva Marci, played by none aside from Tori Spelling, she starts her singing group and competes with the Snow Belles for the coveted mall gig.

The Mistle-Tones, which premiered in 2012 as a part of ABCFamily’s “25 Days of Christmas,” is fun and fluffy, and it stays engaging because of its multiple Christmas medley performances. there’s romance here for Holly — her boss may be a standoffish workaholic. I bet that’s close to change!!! — but Mowry and Spelling are both so familiar with the camera, that their casual self-assurance tends to steal most of their scenes.

Star cast: Tia Mowry, Andy Gala, Jonathan Patrick.

The Man Who Invented Christmas

Are you a biopic-lover trying to sneak a drama into holiday family movie night? the person Who Invented Christmas should do exactly the trick. This moody and unconventional movie tells the somewhat true story of Dickens (Dan Stevens) on the brink of monetary ruin, writing A carol in six weeks so it might be published in time by Christmas. It’s delightful to witness random events in Dickens’ life (like a person during a cemetery grumbling “Bah, humbug!”) coming together to inspire the story we all know so well. Even more surreal, Dickens manifests and talks to the fictional characters (Christopher Plummer may be a perfect Scrooge) as he pieces together the plot in real time. But rather than focusing overly on retreading a story we all know by memory, the movie smartly stays fixated on Dickens himself: his state of mind, his haunting past, and his increasing stress under the mounting pressure for fulfillment.

Star cast: Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce.

Every Other Holiday

A divorce-reconciliation fantasy just in time for Christmas! When their kids announce the sole item on their Christmas list may be a holiday with both Mom and pop, celebrated on their Grandma and Grandpa’s farm, divorced parents Tracie and Rick don’t have much choice but to park the car. Unfortunately, Grandma, played by a flawless Dee Wallace, is seriously overbearing, has never liked Rick (or his guitar!), and is decided to kill any unexpected holiday sparks which may fly between the separated couple — because you recognize there are gonna be sparks! Every Other Holiday goes down like butter. It’s gentle and heartwarming, and it feels relatively fresh compared to other TV holiday flicks, thanks partially to the unexpectedly high-caliber talent of its two leads, Shuyler Fisk and David Clayton Rogers. Because Every Other Holiday may be a Lifetime movie, there’s a sprinkling of the church here and there.

Star cast: David Clayton, Schuyler Fisk, Glenn Morshower, Dee Wallace.

IMDB ratings: 6.9/10

Same Time Next Christmas

Same Time, Next Christmas is barely a Christmas movie. It’s a simple rom-com whose pivotal plot points happen to require a place during the vacation season. But which may be just what you’re trying to find after mainlining yuletide cheer for days on end! This fluffy romp follows a star-crossed couple whose families spend Christmas at an equivalent Hawaiian resort annually. Though they were close as kids, Olivia (Lea Michele) and Jeff (Charles Michael Davis) can’t seem to urge the timing right as adults. Maybe it’s something to try to do with their inexplicable inability to speak outside the one week annually they each spend in Hawaii. Just a guess.

Though the movie sneaks Michele’s covers of Christmas songs into the soundtrack, the important stars here are the oldsters, with Nia Vardalos and George Newbern overflowing with charm as her super horny parents. It’s not getting to win any awards, but if you retain your expectations low, Same Time, Next Christmas may be a pleasant little romance for a comfortable night on the couch.

Star cast: Lea Michele, Charles Micheal Davis, Bryan Greenberg
