Of course we’re kicking this list off with a Christmas staple. Buddy, everyone’s favourite oversized elf, is hilariously played by Will Ferrell. He’s clumsy, comedic, and caring. You’ll find yourself rooting for him as he heads to New York in hopes of finding his biological father.
Nothing says Christmas quite like being left behind when your family goes on holiday, right?! We’re sure just about everybody has seen this, but it’d be a crime to leave this absolute cracker of a film out.
ROM COMS FOR HOPELESS ROMANTICS
Ahhh, every mum’s favourite — the multi-award-winning Christmas rom com with an all-star cast. This film has a bit of everything: the highs and lows of love, and also the heartbreak. And yes, we’re still salty about Harry (Alan Rickman) doing Karen (Emma Thompson) dirty.
Two women from different countries swap homes over Christmas after being stuck in a vicious cycle of dead-end relationships, what could possibly go wrong?
If you’re a sucker for rom coms, we can guarantee this film will be right up your street.
FESTIVE FAMILY FAVOURITES
If this isn’t on your telly every year, you’re doing Christmas wrong. Although our hearts will always be with the original, the newly animated version is still watch worthy.
You can’t beat the grumpy yet hilarious, green coloured creature, played by Benedict Cumberbatch and narrated by Pharrell Williams.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a nativity. Relatable, funny, and adorable, this movie’s a good watch for all the family.
And if you can’t get enough of it, there are four more to binge on. Treat yourself.
COMEDIES FOR A GOOD OLD CHUCKLE
The Bad Moms are back, and this time they’re rebelling against the expectations of a perfect family Christmas. If you’re sick of corny traditions: over the top house decorations, doorstep carolling, and tiresome theatre productions — this one’s for you.
Starting the holidays with a bang, get ready for a night of debauchery and hilarity — although we won’t be taking responsibility for anyone getting any ideas. Instead, use this film as an example of what not to do if you want to keep off Santa’s naughty list.
Now grab your gingerbread men and candy canes, and get ready for the ultimate marathon of Christmas movies.
