I’ll admit it. I love those impossibly cheesy holiday movies, the cheesier the better. In fact, I have a Holiday Movie Rating System (HMRS) that goes something like this:
Paper-thin plot or wildly implausible plot: 5 points
Female lead is either widowed, divorced, recently broken up with fiancé or can’t seem to find true love: 5 points
Male lead is fabulously rich: 5 points (bonus points if female lead isn’t aware of his money OR is not impressed by it)
Male lead seems nasty at first or has a not-so-hidden agenda: 5 points
Movie title sums up the entire plot line: 5 points
Ending is completely predictable from the opening credits: 10 BONUS points!
With this rating system in mind, here are a few of this year’s batch that I’ve watched so far, complete with links.
Now, if only I could find a way to write one of these… maybe I should put that on my to-do list for 2018. In the meantime, Happy Holiday Viewing!
