TV and Movies·Posted on Nov 2, 201924 Underrated Christmas Movies That Should Be An Annual TraditionThere are enough movies here for each day from Dec. 1 to Christmas Eve.by Andy GolderBuzzFeed Staff FacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community what their favorite ~underrated~ Christmas movie is. Here are some of the most popular responses! 1. Arthur Christmas Sony Pictures Arthur Christmas!! I hardly see anyone talk about it and it’s such a shame because it’s honestly so heartwarming and truly encapsulates the feeling of Christmas. Plus it has an INCREDIBLE voice cast.—daisymsummersAvailable on: Amazon (rent/purchase) 2. The Apartment United Artists My favorite Christmas movie is also the only one ever to win the Best Picture Oscar: The Apartment (1960). It's all about how lonely people survive the Christmas season; the cast, led by Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine, and Fred MacMurray, is top-notch; and it doubles as a needle-sharp indictment of corporate dehumanization. And it has one of the greatest final lines in cinema history.—rayanselmoAvailable on: Amazon (rent/purchase) 3. The Night Before Columbia Overall, I'm kinda done with modern adaptations of A Christmas Carol, but The Night Before is the exception. Seth Rogen is beyond hilarious in this movie, and the rest of the cast — including Anthony Mackie, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lizzy Caplan, Mindy Kaling, and Ilana Glazer — is also great. VERY R-rated, but pretty fun.—Andy GolderAvailable on: Amazon (rent/purchase) 4. 12 Dates of Christmas John Medland / ABC FAMILY I absolutely love 12 Dates of Christmas. It's very Groundhog's Day in that she lives Christmas Eve over and over again, which is always fun, but it's also very sweet. I watch a few times every year. —ohpineapplesAvailable on: Amazon (purchase) 5. Jingle All the Way 20th Century Fox Without fail we watch Jingle All the Way every year. A lot of younger people in my experience haven’t seen it or aren’t familiar with it. Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as a workaholic dad going to extreme lengths to obtain a coveted toy for his young son. Funny, action-packed, and it has a great cast.—jackie811Available on: Hulu 6. I'll Be Home for Christmas Disney I'll Be Home For Christmas! It's got a star-studded cast. Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Jessica Biel, Adam LaVorgna, Gary Cole. It has a great balance of comedic and heartfelt moments. Such a great movie. It's always a holiday must-see for us!—karlyb4358af021Will be available on Disney+ when it launches Nov. 12. 7. While You Were Sleeping Buena Vista While You Were Sleeping is my Christmas movie. It’s not Christmastime without it!—ajandie1020Available on: Amazon (rent/purchase) 8. A Muppet Christmas Carol Disney I don’t know if it’s underrated, but my favorite Christmas movie is A Muppet Christmas Carol. I watch it on Christmas Eve every year and have gotten my kids into watching it too. I love all the songs and Rizzo and Gonzo are really funny!—sarahp46fddde74Will be available on Disney+ when it launches Nov. 12. 9. Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas Disney Yes, it's a straight-to-video sequel, but it manages to keep the spirit of the original while telling a new story.—emmanzWill be available on Disney+ when it launches Nov. 12. 10. The Shop Around the Corner MGM It's very old, but it's the most lovely romantic story, acted so well, and the film just goes by so quickly. James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan are perfectly pitted against each other and the support characters provide excellent entertainment. Along with Uncle Buck and A Muppet Christmas Carol, this is the film that as a family we sit down to watch every year.—lauren2702Available on: Amazon (rent/purchase) 11. 'Twas the Night Disney 'Twas the Night was my favorite Christmas film growing up; no one I mention it to seems to have heard of it. It's got Bryan Cranston in it! Great film.—katherineb4d35c6461Will be available on Disney+ when it launches Nov. 12. 12. Annabelle's Wish Fox It's a cheesy animated TV movie that was only shown once or twice about a calf named Annabelle who is born on Christmas and wants to be a reindeer. All the barnyard animals get to speak on Christmas, and Annabelle befriends Billy, a boy who lives on the farm and can't speak. It has cute songs and some great voice actors, like Rue McClanahan. I believe it was sponsored by the Make a Wish program, and I'm so glad my parents taped it on a VHS all those years ago. We watch it every year! —ivyd48acf90eaAvailable on DVD 13. The Addams Family (1991) Paramount I don’t care what you say! The Addams Family is a Christmas movie. It’s the same principle as Die Hard — if a movie takes place during Christmas, it’s a Christmas movie. End of discussion.—imgothAvailable on: Amazon (rent/purchase) 14. Grumpy Old Men Warner Bros. The best Christmas movie ever (except for maybe Die Hard). Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon at their finest.—ruthierob4166Available on: Amazon (rent/purchase) 15. The Family Stone Warner Bros. The Family Stone is the greatest, sweetest, funniest Christmas movie. Every year I watch it and laugh and cry. Gah, I just love it.—diajohnson434Available on: Hulu with Cinemax add-on 16. Just Friends New Line Cinema Just Friends with Ryan Reynolds and Amy Smart is the most underrated film of all time that happens to be a Christmas movie.—katiebakercomedyAvailable on: Netflix 17. Anna and the Apocalypse Vertigo It has Christmas, singing, and zombies... What more could you want?!?—savvymarieAvailable on: Amazon with EPIX add-on 18. "Merry Christmas, Mr. Bean" from Mr. Bean View this video on YouTube youtube.com The Mr. Bean Christmas special is unbelievably hilarious, but it's something no one thinks of watching. There's a part where Mr. Bean pretends to lay siege on a toy nativity scene. He literally attacks baby Jesus with a plastic Dalek and then drives the sheep off in a toy farm truck, all while making ridiculous sound effects.—florida_flamingo_girlAvailable on: YouTube 19. Meet Me in St. Louis MGM The song “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” was written for the film. It goes through every season so I start watching in October.—caitlinc48ce316bdAvailable on: Amazon (rent/purchase) 20. Scrooged Paramount It just isn't Xmas 'til I have watched Scrooged! What's not to love about a retelling of Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol with Bill Murray in the lead role! I am genuinely filled with joy when they all start singing "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" at the end of the film. If this film doesn't make you feel festive you must have a swinging brick instead of a heart!—e4ffb33adfAvailable on: Hulu with Starz add-on 21. Nativity! BBC Films Nativity! with Martin Freeman doesn't get the recognition it deserves. It's a BBC film about a Christmas-hating teacher who has to organize the nativity play at the primary school he works at, and is overheard lying that his ex-girlfriend is going to bring film producers over from Hollywood to watch it. It's a funny, feel-good, family-friendly movie that I watch every year without fail.—rachaelvaletina97 22. Terry Pratchett's Hogfather Sky1 Such a crazy concept but Terry Pratchett somehow made it work. —elwhAvailable on: Amazon (purchase) 23. Mickey's Christmas Carol buzzfeed.com It's only 25 minutes long and very childlike in places but I've watched it every Christmas Eve since I was a toddler. It's a perfect little dose of Christmas. —megzydukAvailable on: Amazon (rent/purchase) 24. And finally, Little Women MGM, Sony Little Women (1949, but any version really) is a non-Christmas movie I always watch at Christmas.—meownikAvailable on: Netflix (1994 version) Be sure to follow BuzzFeed Community on Facebook and Twitter for the chance to be featured in upcoming BuzzFeed posts or videos!
