10. Babe in Toyland (1986)

Did you know that 22-year-old Keanu Reeves sang in a Christmas TV movie? Yes… John Wick, Neo, Constantine… that Keanu Reeves.

This 1986 TV movie stars 11-year-old Drew Barrymore as Lisa, a Cincinnati girl who is annoyingly proud of herself. Anyway, she falls out of a jeep on Christmas Eve during a snowstorm, hits her head, and wakes up in Toyland, where she meets a group of people (Reeves, Jill Scullin, and Joji Grace). Together, with the help of a character known as the Toymaster (Pat Morita), they must stop Barnaby Barnacle (Richard Mulligan) from taking over Toyland.

Well, when we call this movie disparaging, we mean it in a “so bad it’s good” kind of way. The movie is more than slightly flawed. It’s cheaply made, poorly acted, and its musical numbers are uninspired and forgettable (other than that annoying “Cincinnati” you won’t be able to escape). That and the fact that not only is it a cheap remake of a better movie, but it also takes many elements away The Wizard of Oz (All the way to Barnaby dressed as the Wicked Witch of the West). However, we loved it as kids, and the fact that we can roast it as adults makes it fun in a different way. And while Barrymore and Reeves poked fun at it during a conversation on her talk show, Reeves acknowledged that the movie has a kind heart that shines through the chaos.

We recently lost a real treasure with the death of Angela Lansbury. While we know it for she wrote murder, And to Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the beastVery few have seen her perfect incarnation of Mrs. Claus in this 1996 TV movie. Tired of running all the rides and not getting any recognition from anyone, including her husband, Mrs. Claus takes the sled to test out a new route she’s been suggesting. However, things get complicated when she lands in New York City, and an injured reindeer forces her to take up temporary residence. During this time, the community has been blessed in many ways. She helps suffragettes get women to march for voting rights, helps her find love with a stable immigrant man, becomes a role model for a lonely immigrant girl, and fights for child labor rights against a ruthless toy factory owner. Aside from touching on serious issues, the film’s performance and presentation of the musical numbers make it both an enjoyable and criminally underrated Christmas movie.

If you want to watch a Christmas movie that inspires you to have the same faith, love, hope, and purity you had as a child, look no further than dumps.

When she encounters an injured and oddly unafraid reindeer in the woods, she becomes convinced it is Santa’s reindeer. She does her best to save the creature and bring it back to Santa. These efforts have become public knowledge, and they inspire the entire city with their acts of kindness. We won’t spoil how the movie ends, but we will say it’s one of the many moments in this movie where you’d better have a box of tissues on hand. You can watch it on HBO Max.
