The MovieMuse Christmas List

Over the last few years the MovieMuse team has logged more than 80 Christmas movies in our MovieViews database, which has enabled us to produce this list of films for the festive period. Some are good, some are bad and some are far less Christmassy than others, but if you’re wondering whether any of those made-for-TV movies are worth a watch, are looking for something a little different or just want a reminder of some Yuletide classics, look no further than our handy reference guide!

You can also see the MovieMuse team’s Top Ten Christmas films by checking out the YouTube video at the bottom of the page.

The Forgotten Toys 2, 8, 18 1995 A delightful tale of the toys that get thrown away as time and technology march on. With a great voice cast and some charming characters, it is worth 25 minutes of anyones time. 7 Gordon
The Grinch 2, 4, 8 2018 Despite some token hip-hop that feels out of place, this retelling of the Dr Seuss classic does easilly as good a job as the live action alternative. 7 Gordon
The Knight Before Christmas 4, 9, 16 2019 Josh Whitehouse is good value as a 14th century knight transported to modern times to fulfil a quest by Christmas Eve. Utterly predictable but above-average acting and some amusing 'fish out of water' scenes make it a perfectly watchable festive film. 6 1
The Muppet Christmas Carol 4, 7, 8 1992 Christmas isn't Christmas without Robin the Frog blessing us, one and all. Darker in places than most Muppet films, but better for it. 8 Gordon
The Night Before 4 2015 A typical Seth Rogen "boys night out" comedy for the most part, but there are enough funny scenes to make it enjoyable and the many nods to well-known Christmas movies are cleverly done. 6 1
This Christmas 4, 7 2007 The Whitfield family gather for Christmas and each bring plenty of drama with them. Sarring Idris Elba as the black sheep and Chris Brown as the singer, it is hardly original or unexpected. But it is fun and has a great cast dance-off at the end. 6 Gordon
Trading Places 4 1983 Undoubtedly a classic of 80s comedy with great performances from Eddie Murphy, Dan Ackroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis. However the use racist language seems to juxtapose against the rest of the film. 8 Gordon
Trading Places 4 1983 A classic Eddie Murphy Vehicle, with a good solid cast and a great story. The sense of moralistic victory lends to a good feeling while watching the latter half and overall it is a great movie. 8 2
Trading Places 4 1983 The language in this 80s comedy classic is a bit un-PC nowadays but the story is still clever and both Aykroyd and Murphy are at their best, supported brilliantly by Denholm Elliot and Paul Gleason in particular. 8 1
Why Him? 4 2016 Pretty much a rehash of Meet the Parents with a slightly different twist and a lot more crude humour. Sags heavily in the middle but the first and last half hour are entertaining enough. 5 1
Window Wonderland 4, 16 2013 The premise has potential but after an amusing opening, this reverts to the usual romantic festive fodder that Hallmark is famous for. Perfectly watchable if you know what to expect. 5 1
