Top 10 worst Christmas films
Share This Article:
Don’t get me wrong, I love curling up on the sofa with a box of Miniature Heroes and watching Elf and Home Alone, maybe even welling up a little bit at The Snowman. But while classic Christmas movies are one of the staple features of holiday enjoyment, there are some that are so bad that even the Christmas spirit of Santa himself would waiver upon watching. Take a look (except don’t. These things should never have been seen by human eyes) at our list of the top ten worst Christmas movies: 1. Jingle All the Way: Oh Arnie, you really should have stuck to the Terminator movies. Probably on a par with Kindergarten Cop, this is one of those films that are so cheesy that, actually, you kind of love it. That said, it doesn’t stop it from being one of the worst Christmas films of all time, in which Arnold Schwarzenegger endures a series of ‘comedy’ mishaps to get hold of the hottest toy in town for his son. Apparently there’s a message in there somewhere about the commercialisation of Christmas but, with the gags falling flat, there’s little to keep your attention long enough for it to be hammered home. Let’s just be thankful there was no sequel... 2. Home Alone 3: …Pity the same can’t be said for the Home Alone series. The DVD cover might boast that this is ‘better than the first two!’ but don’t believe a word of it! Once Macaulay Culkin was out of the picture, this concept should have been left as alone as Kevin McCallister was on Christmas Eve. This third instalment focuses on young Alex Pruitt, who fights off a gang of industrial spies desperate to get their hands on his remote control car, containing a computer chip actually intended for a North Korean terrorist group.
