A Christmas movie is our favorite thing ever. Maybe not a Christmas movie that is so bad it’s good. Hallmark used to be the only company that made cheesy holiday movies, but Netflix has been giving them a run for their money lately. Knights who can move through time, princes who fall in love with reporters, and a lot of Vanessa Hudgens characters. They have everything.
Netflix has a lot of Christmas shows, from small-town clichés to crazy ideas we can’t even understand. Not only do they have cringe-worthy and binge-worthy shows, but they also have a lot of your favorite Christmas movies, like Elf and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
We’ve put together a list of the best Christmas movies and TV shows that you can watch on Netflix this holiday season.
A Castle For Christmas
Let’s be honest: this Christmas movie looks awful because it stars two famous actors. We will, of course, be there to watch.
This movie comes out in 2021 and follows author Sophie Brown (Brooke Shields) as she goes to Scotland. Duke Myles (Cary Elwes), the castle’s grumpy owner, doesn’t want to sell to a rude American. She wants to buy the castle herself. Always bumping into each other as she moves in and he gets ready to leave… Do you see where this is going?
Dash & Lily (Season 1, 8 Episodes)
While Dash & Lily is a rom-com that’s kind of in the middle, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and The Kissing Booth are also big hits on Netflix. Most likely because it was based on a young adult book, just like those pictures.
Lily, played by Midori Francis, is a shy, hopeless lover who loves Christmas, and Dash, played by Austin Abrams, is kind of like the Grinch. This holiday story is about two people who meet in New York over the holidays and trade notebooks to get to know each other.
The Princess Switch 3
The Vanessa Hudgens movie universe keeps going!
If you haven’t seen the first episode of The Princess Switch, the idea behind it is a play on the traditional Prince and the Pauper story, where two people who look alike switch lives for a short time. An American cook named Stacy De Novo switched places with Lady Margaret Delacourt, Duchess of Montenaro, when Stacy went to Belgravia to win a big baking contest. Margaret’s evil cousin Lady Fiona, played by Vanessa Hudgens, joined the cast in the second movie.
What chaos is in store for us in the third part? You’ll have to watch to find out, but we can say that something important from The Vatican is stolen. Yes, that’s the way we’re going: heists. Here is the video for you to watch. The story goes on after the movie.
Love Hard’s plot is a little harder to get behind, but the actors are so cute.
In the movie, Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries), Jimmy O. Yang (Silicon Valley, Crazy Rich Asians), Darren Barnett (Never Have I Ever), Harry Shum Jr. (Glee), James Saito (Dash & Lily, Always Be My Maybe), and more portray important characters.
In the story, an unlucky LA girl falls in love with an East Coast guy on a dating app, but she finds out she’s been catfished when she surprises him for the holidays. What a mess!
Emma Roberts, who plays Poppy Moore on American Horror Story, and Luke Bracey, who plays an Aussie hottie, get another heartthrob role in Holidate. However, Roberts’s performance is more like her Wild Child part.
Sloane (Roberts) and Jackson (Bracey) plan to hang out with each other for holidays and other special occasions after becoming friendly plus ones on New Year’s Eve. They look out for each other from St. Patrick’s Day to Halloween. They’ve also agreed to stay friends. You already know where that’s going.
The Knight Before Christmas
As Brooke, an Ohio high school science teacher, Vanessa Hudgens plays a lot of the same character when she’s not governing her own movie world as a trio of royals. Squire Cole Christopher Frederick Lyons (Josh Whitehouse), who is living in England in the 1300s, is taken to the present day and runs into Brooke. She hits him with her car.
Brooke takes Cole in and helps him get used to modern life because she thinks this strange guy has lost his memory and hasn’t really gone to the future. With its snowy scenes and holiday cheer, this is a lot like the Christina Applegate movie Just Visiting, but even cheesier.
