12 Best Christmas Movies On Hulu
As many of us learned from our early days of crafting Christmas lists to Santa, it’s important to include some safeties alongside those heavy-hitters on your wish list. When it comes to your holiday watch list, the same rule applies. Sure, there are the holiday staple titles that remain tried and true. But, if you’re looking for an extensive holiday movie marathon (or, you’re just tired of watching It’s a Wonderful Life every year), it’s time to make way for some misfit movies.
Luckily, Hulu has the perfect balance of classics along with new-age gems and, of course, those warm blanket, formulaic network flicks. Sure, those Lifetime movies might pack about as much substance as a sugar cookie, but they pack the sweetness, too. So, open your heart and get cozy to some new titles this year with the best Christmas movies on Hulu. From star-studded originals like Happiest Season on the way, to classic favorites like Elf, you’re sure to have a happy Huluday*.
*Sorry for that.
What could be a better new-age Christmas rom-com than a lesbian love story between Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis*? (*See: beautifully gay “San Junipero” episode of Black Mirror.) When Stewart’s character goes home for the holidays with her girlfriend, she quickly learns that their relationship is a secret to her family. The Hulu original boasts a stacked supporting cast—including the likes of Alison Brie, Ana Gasteyer, Aubrey Plaza, Dan Levy, Mary Steenburgen, and Mila Kunis among others.
Written and directed by Preston A. Whitmore II and based on the Donny Hathaway song of the same name, This Christmas falls on the holiday homecoming of the Whitmore family, whose eldest son has come home for the first time in four years.
Game of Thrones’s Emilia Clarke stars as a disillusioned “elf” working in a Christmas-themed store. However, her luck turns when she meets the too-good-to-be-true guy, played by Henry Golding.
Darcy has been living a life of shoulda coulda woulda, dreaming that perfection is just out of her reach. When she finds herself magically transported to a magical Christmas village, she learns that perfection might not be all it’s cracked up to be.
The Man Who Invented Christmas
A biographical drama centered around none other than Charles Dickens, played by Dan Stevens, as he crafts the beloved holiday tale, A Christmas Carol.
Home for the Holidays
This one probably had you at “starring Holly Hunter.” If not, maybe you were in at “and Robert Downey Jr.” But if not, you should definitely be on board by “directed by by Jodie Foster.” It tells the story of Hunter’s Claudia Larson, a single mom whose teen daughter (played by My So-Called Life-era Claire Danes) decides to spend Christmas her boyfriend, leaving her mom to fly home alone to her wacky family in Baltimore.
Anna and the Apocalypse
High schoolers band together to fend off zombie hordes—doesn’t exactly sound like Christmas material. But what if it’s a Yuletide undead uprising, all set to a catchy musical score? That’s definitely more like it. This scrappy British indie is funny, filled with snappy tunes, and critically acclaimed—it’s currently sitting pretty at 78 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
A Very Terry Christmas
If you’re looking for some soothing holiday viewing, you couldn’t do better than NBC’s Terry Crews Christmas special. In it, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star channels his inner Bob Ross, painting a holiday scene before a crackling fire while dropping phrases like, “Ooh, don’t you just love a blue sky? A pretty, Christmas-y blue sky.” Last year, the special aired on YouTube for a full 24 hour loop—and it’s so comforting that if you’re not careful, you might find it on repeat, too.
Daddy’s Home 2
Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg star as a father and stepfather who want to make their joint holiday perfect. Then both of their fathers, John Lithgow and Mel Gibson respectively, get in the mix and make for too much personality (and chaos) at one holiday.
The March Sisters at Christmas
There seems to be a lot of obsession with Little Women these days. This 2018 movie is a modern retelling of the Louisa May Alcott story—but with a holiday theme.
A Very Brady Christmas
In 1989, 15 years after its final episode, The Brady Bunch came back with a holiday special. All the kids are grown-up, and they have some real grown-up issues. The whole thing is a lot heavier than one would expect from this fairly lighthearted show, but hey, the holidays for families are real.
Holiday in Handcuffs
Melissa Joan Hart’s character, Trudy, a struggling artist, wants nothing more than to impress her family. For her, this means bringing home a man for the holidays (because that is somehow the most impressive thing she can do?). She captures one of her customers (Mario Lopez) at the restaurant where she works as a waitress and brings him home to pass off as her boyfriend to her family. Just some light holiday crime.
