It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year for Awful Holiday Movies

worstxmas-6

Hey Double-Gobblers! Kristy here, and it’s that time of year when we see some of our favorite holiday movies played over and over on repeat until we can no longer stand the shrill cry of “You’ll shoot your eye out!”.

I have a theory that the reason we see only a handful of movies on repeat during the holidays is because there are not a lot of quality holiday movies out there. Sure, turn on the Hallmark Channel right now and you will see what appears to be a plethora of Christmas films, but they all have the same basic premise and horrible acting. Anyway, I am not the only Christmas movie Grinch- here are the Top Ten Worst Christmas Movies according to FilmSchoolRejects.com

My personal favorite Holiday movie is “It’s a Wonderful Life”, and thankfully it came out before the era of franchises, otherwise we might be stuck with an “It’s a Wonderful Life 2: Angels Getting Wings to the Extreme”. Oh wait, my co-blogger and husband, Koob ruined everything by informing me that there IS a sequel set for 2015. Seriously, Christmas is ruined.

On a more positive note, last night I took  a look at Koob, and realized that he looks like a younger version of Santa Claus. Is it possible that I could be married to a man who lives a double life as Santa? What else might he be hiding? Am I going to have to move to the North Pole once his white beard starts to grow in? Can we take our cats with us? So many questions!  Now THIS sounds like a horrible Christmas movie in the making.

    Kristy, just because hallmark puts out 10 new bad Christmas movies a year doesn’t mean they’re all bad. Check out some of the older films that get played maybe twice a year on TCM. My favorite is Holiday Affair. You could make a strong argument for Auntie Mame thanks to her getting a job in retail at Christmas when she loses all her money (i like Rosalind Russell better than Lucille Ball in Mame, but We Need a Little Christmas is from that). Then there’s The Shop Around the Corner, It Happened on Fifth Avenue, and Christmas in Connecticut. I could go on…but the point is there are some amazing Christmas classics apart from the three played on tv over and over again at the holidays.
