This is the season for cheesy Christmas movies! – Mancunion

Although many Christmas movies are considered cult classics of the genre, this genre is saturated with cheesy feel-good movies to watch with friends or family during the holiday season. There are some Christmas movies that they enjoy because of their nostalgia (personally dwarf For me), others are loved because they are fun (Home Alone), but some are loved for their cheesiness and those are the ones we’ll be taking a look at here! In no particular order…

Elf (2003):

Christmas movie from my childhood is dwarf. I’m not entirely sure why or how it became a family favourite, but it did until I was 11 when we were also cast Arthur Christmas In the mix (more on this later!) for those of you unfamiliar with the cinematic masterpiece dwarfThe movie follows Buddy the elf played by Will Ferrell, a human who was raised as one of Santa’s elves in the North Pole.

He later discovers, as an adult, that he is not actually an elf but was in fact orphaned by his father as an infant. Buddy then goes on an adventure to New York City to reunite with his father (the late James Caan) and spread the Christmas cheer. Most people say how much they hate dwarf Given its cheesy nature, but I think if you like to look back, it’s a fun and great movie to get you into the Christmas spirit.

Cheese classification: sweet, like brie and cranberry.

Last Christmas (2019):

Anyone who knows me will know that I am not a romantic person, but I am, however, huge George Michael A fan and so when I found out a Christmas movie was being made with a soundtrack consisting entirely of his music, I had to watch it! The film stars Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, and Emma Thompson.

It follows struggling aspiring singer Kate (Clark) working as a Christmas elf in a department store and bouncing between houses when she meets charming and optimistic Tom (Golding). I won’t describe too much for fear of spoiling the ending, but I thoroughly enjoyed the plot development. I didn’t find it overly cheesy Christmas romance, so it rated highly by my standards.

Cheese rating: Humble cheddar.

Princess Switch Trilogy (2018, 2020, 2021):

Now, this is a movie that rates high on the cheese scale! Switch princes Stars Vanessa Hudgens playing Stacy the baker from Chicago and Lady Margaret Montanaro (ala. Selena Gomez Monte Carlo). Stacey is entered into a prestigious baking competition by her assistant, Kevin. She travels with him and his daughter, and meets Lady Margaret.

They were amazed at how identical they looked (paternity decoy A moment anyone?) and decided to switch places for a few days until the baking competition and Margaret’s wedding. There’s clearly a lot of drama and nonsensical romance that follows that you’d expect from a Netflix Christmas movie…and there are two more movies in the series that are superfluous after that!

Cheese classification: smelly blue cheese slice.

Let It Snow (2019):

Let it snow is yet another Christmas movie by Netflix, but this one is based on the YA novel of the same name that contains three short stories about different romances intertwined. The cast includes a host of familiar faces among Gen Z like Isabela Merced, Odeya Rush, and Kiernan Shipka.

As for teens, it’s pretty cheesy, but most romantic movies are! Personally, I liked the different stories inside although the book is definitely better than the movie.

Cheese classification: a mixture of different types of cheese.

Holiday (2020):

Holidays is a comedy about the cynic Christmas Sloane (Emma Roberts) who hates the holidays because of her family’s constant criticism and disapproval of being single. Until she meets Jackson (Luke Bracey) and they agree to have each other dates but only on vacations, just to develop true feelings for each other.

If you can’t figure out how cheesy this movie actually is, I suggest you re-evaluate a few things! I didn’t find it overly funny and not particularly Christmas-related since it takes place on various holidays, but nonetheless, it’s nice to add to your list if you’re looking for movies to watch.

Cheese classification: Underwhelming Wensleydale.

Christmas with the Kranks (2004):

This movie features Jamie Lee Curtis and Tim Allen as Nora and Luther Krank, a married couple who choose to boycott vacations and go on a Caribbean cruise instead after their daughter leaves on a Peace Corps mission in Peru.

However, the couple are considered social outcasts by their neighbors for not celebrating Christmas, but the Kranks are going strong until they discover their daughter will be home for the holidays. Their Christmas spirit is restored, and they decide to never skip Christmas again. The movie is funny and puts you in a good mood, but American comedy is sometimes cheesy.

Cheese Rating: Fondue dip twice.

Arthur Christmas (2011):

I’ve been told liking this movie is a red flag, but my family and I watch it every Christmas Eve anyway. This Aardman animated feature features voices by Jim Broadbent, Imelda Staunton, James McAvoy, Bill Nighy, and Hugh Laurie.

It’s about Santa’s son Arthur who goes on an adventure with Grandsanta and Elf Bryony to bring a gift to a child he missed. Such as dwarf, This movie brings back childhood memories for me and is part of the lore, but there is no doubt that it is not silly and overdone in some parts.

Cheese classification: Lanchable.

Bad Moms Christmas (2017):

The Christmas-y sequel to the hit comedy Bad mothersAnd stars Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn who have to spend the holidays with their own frustrated and difficult moms in their own way! Personally, I like this movie even though it’s cheesy in places, and it’s aimed at an older audience. Arthur Christmas or dwarf So it’s great to watch it with friends.

Cheese rating: Camembert with a Christmas crisp.

Just because these movies are dirty doesn’t mean you have to boycott them entirely! Still a great way to get you in the Christmas spirit. If you’re willing to go beyond the cheesy and don’t mind a bit of indirect awkwardness in your quest to get in the right holiday mood, you might as well enjoy yourself!
