“Tis the season to be jolly!” We have finally reached the most wonderful time of the year filled with love, friends/family time, and lots of wine.
What better way to enjoy the season by cuddling up and watching some holiday films. Check out our top 5 holiday movies you should watch in no particular order.
- Office Christmas Party – T. J. Miller and Jennifer Aniston play feuding siblings who have different perspectives on how to run the company they inherited. Tasked with winning the business of a high-stakes client, Miller’s Clay sets out throw the office Christmas party to end all office Christmas party—an event so debauched that it might end their company, too.
- Jingle All The Way – Arnold Schwartzenegger plays a busy man who has continuously let his young son down, and promises, this Christmas, that he will get him the Turbo-Man action figure, the most coveted toy of the holiday season. But he’s not the only dad who’s made this promise, which leads to a real showdown with another father, hilariously played by Sinbad.
- Edward Sissorhand – Johnny Depp’s pale, leather-suited, scissor-handed Edward stands out amidst the colorful suburban Christmastime landscape of Tim Burton’s 1990 fantasy, although his story is one that ultimately proves perfectly in tune with the season’s spirit of open-hearted inclusiveness.
- The Santa Clause – In 1994 a very specific Christmas fear formed for some children: that Santa would fall off their roof and to his death. Way to make a lovely holiday into a complete nightmare, mid-1990s filmmakers. When Tim Allen inadvertently causes Santa to die on his property, he has to assume the role of the next Santa Claus. There’s a lot of body-shaming stuff here that likely doesn’t fly as well in 2019, but this movie is featured in enough Christmas movie marathons that it belongs on the list.
- The Best Man’s Holiday – Director Malcolm D. Lee reassembles the cast from his 1999 feature, with his group of old friends reuniting for the first time after 15 years for Christmas, which serves as a backdrop for various interpersonal issues.
