8 of the best Christmas movies you can watch on Netflix right now
Brand new releases and some classics, with picks both for the whole family and just the grown-ups.
Quick, what's your favourite Christmas movie?!
Chances are, whatever your answer was, you've probably already watched it this holiday season.
However, if you're looking for some Christmas inspiration (Chrispiration? No, that doesn't really work...), and assuming you've got access to a Netflix account (because, really, who doesn't?), then we've done the hard work for you and found eight of the best Christmassy movies you can check out in their library right now...
A Castle For Christmas
After that trailer, we all assumed it would be a total dud, kind of like Wild Mountain Thyme, except set in Scotland.
Instead, it rocks up with 75% on Rotten Tomatoes and everyone seems to agree that the rom-com featuring Brooke Shields and Cary Elwes is all-too-watchable.
Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz take it upon themselves to do a bit of a house (and life) swap, with Winslet heading to LA and hanging out with Jack Black, while Diaz takes up a cottage in England while getting to know Jude Law.
A bit of a modern festive classic.
Not every Christmas movie needs to be a rom-com, just 99.999999% of them.
This is one of the few that falls outside that bracket, when a family find themselves targeted by Santa's demonic cousin.
Toni Collette, Adam Scott and the rest of the impressive cast know exactly what kind of movie they're in and have fun being in it.
The director of Bridesmaids, the writer of Love Actually, and two beautiful people (Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding) falling in love during Christmas, all while soundtracked by George Michael and Wham.
What's not to love?
Speaking of Love Actually, it is also available on Netflix.
You've either watched it a million times already, or you haven't.
This isn't something we need to persuade you about either way.
Office Christmas Party
In a year when hardly any of us will actually be allowed to have a Christmas party with our co-workers, this all-star rager will probably incite some serious FOMO.
Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn, Kate McKinnon, Rob Corddry and plenty more feature.
Gillian Anderson and Richard E. Grant lend their voices to this animated short (just 30 minutes long!) from the creators of Wallace & Gromit, telling the story of a young robin who is raised by mice, but wishes upon a Christmas star to find out who she truly is.
Single All The Way
An LGBTQ-remix of the usual festive rom-com sees Peter (Michael Urie) bring his BFF Nick (Philemon Chambers) home to his family for Christmas and pose as his boyfriend, in an attempt to avoid the usual "Why are you single??" questions.
Instead, his family - including Kathy Najimy and Jennifer Coolidge - try to play matchmaker for him with some of the local men.
