My absolute favourite Christmas film of all time is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. DH and I watch it every year (& have done for the past goodness knows how many years!), we know it word for word blush.
In the more recent years I've discovered Christmas Inheritance and Christmas in the Clouds. Both are delightfully cheesy films and I watch them each year.
What are your annual cheesy Christmas films?

Christmas With The Kranks - my absolute favourite film ever. Watch it every year.

Home Alone.

Also have to watch the Polar Express which I know isn’t that cheesy but some people seem to hate it.

My DH loves Christmas With the Kranks (he has a thing for Jamie Leigh Curtis fgrin )

Mine is "Lost Christmas" (Eddie Izzard film) we watch it every year , usually in August and December

And now "Last Christmas" the Emma Thompson film. Heavily slated but I loved it .

On Channel 5 it has to be Angels in the Snow -bit of a twist at the end and the parents manage to get through Christmas without pushing the youngest daughter into a snowdrift fgrin

Anything which involves someone returning from a big city to the small town they were raised and realising they love it here. Basically your average Hallmark Christmas movie!

Love Actually and It's a Wonderful Life

Haha came on to comment same as @bumble84! Anything on the Hallmark channel. I loved Christmas in July, can't wait for it to come back in the autumn!

This!

I love these movies soooo much.

At the start of lockdown I was saying to DH that I was gutted it didn’t happen in November/December. I’d have happily spent my days watching all the Hallmark Christmas movies with a smelly candle and the tree lights on 🎄

Discovered the Christmas prince on Netflix last year. Absolute rubbish I loved it!

Is there a Christmas film that isn't cheesy? I love The Santa Clause and that one where Danny de vito gets all the Christmas lights

Yep, another hallmark christmas movies lover here! Also love the cheesey ones on Netflix

22Giraffes Sun 16-Aug-20 22:25:28

All 3 nativity films, we love Mr.Poppy! grin

TheMarzipanDildo Sun 16-Aug-20 22:27:22

Love Actually and Nativity

Me and some friends watched The Knight Before Christmas last year, ridiculous film!

Pollaidh Sun 16-Aug-20 22:32:13

Nativity! (the first one). It's funny, the songs are so catchy we sing them in the summer, and I quite often have a tear in my eye at some point. If the children put it on, even in August, everyone else gravitates to the sofa by the end.

Also Muppets Christmas Carol.

dementedma Sun 16-Aug-20 22:39:12

Has to be The Grinch. All 3 dcs will huddle on the sofa and watch it; they are 29, 27 and 18

SillyUnMurphy Sun 16-Aug-20 22:45:57

DDs and I watch the crap out of Nativity over the festive period. Last year I think we managed about once a week from September 🤣
I also love The Santa Claus with Tim Allen and National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (which has been a favourite with my family for 30 years!) DH and I also laughed way too much at Daddy’s Home 2.

Elf
Arthur Christmas
The Holiday
Lord of the Rings
Any cheesy Christmas film on the Christmas film channels
Disney Christmas Carol

TheWoollybacksWife Sun 16-Aug-20 22:52:49

I've only seen it twice but I look every year for the film "Holiday in Handcuffs" with Melissa Joan Hart. It's a typical cheesy Hallmark style Christmas movie - log cabins and snow but I loved it.

I have The Bishop's Wife saved on my Sky box. It's set at Christmas and I love it. I first watched it with my late father so it reminds me of him and has the added bonus of Cary Grant

longtompot Sun 16-Aug-20 22:53:49

I forgot to add Klaus! Watched it last year and loved it. It will be our new Christmas Eve film

Haha that is every movie! And she always opens a bakery or bookshop. And her big city lawyer boyfriend comes to visit so she has to choose between him and the charming single dad she's just met in her hometown.

Me and DH have a yearly tradition where we watch and mock a terrible movie called Christmas Shoes. It makes us sound so mean because the movie is really sad and about a kid trying to buy shoes for his dying mum. But oh my god it's awful. Spoiler alert, Rob Lowe is a hard hearted lawyer who buys the shoes for the kid in the end and realises that he works too hard and needs to spend time with the family.
