Horrible Christmas Movies You Can Watch on Netflix

Let me preface this by saying that I had absolutely no intention of blogging this, but these horrible Christmas movies were so bad that I feel obligated to share them. Like you probably are right now, I was innocently sitting at home looking for holiday movies to watch on Netflix and I came across these absolute gems. And by gems, I mean these were pretty unwatchable, but I powered through because bad films are hilarious. Watch them, Hate them, Laugh & Share them with your friends.

Horrible Christmas Movies You Can Watch on Netflix

the christmas card movie horrible christmas movies on netflix

The Christmas Card // This is the first really bad holiday film I watched. Now, I realize that Hallmark movies tend to be bad in the first place, but this one is REALLY BAD. Like, really horrible. It practically plagiarized the plot of The Lucky One, but it’s a horribly executed holiday copy if there ever was one. It focuses on a sergeant just out of the army who has lost some good men on his latest tour in Afghanistan. Just before the tour ended that previous Christmas, he receives a holiday card from a stranger and it touches his heart so much he goes to find the girl who sent it. Now, that doesn’t sound all that bad, BUT IT IS! It is so horrible. The male lead is straight up creepy. He acts like a freaking predator. I’m not sure who finds this shit romantic, but it’s not me. I’m sure he was going for that whole strong, silent type, but it totally did not work for him. As for the female lead, I was shocked to find it’s the chick who plays the mom (Esther) on The Originals! She’s gotten a LOT better since this film, thank God, but her acting is less of a complaint than just the flaws of the character writing. She acts nearing on desperate for the male lead even though she has a boyfriend. One that she easily leaves behind the moment the supposed hottie sergeant walks into town. Also, this movie comes off as largely religious with many references to having faith, etc. (the girl’s name is even Faith!), but none of it makes any sense. The father basically plots to get them together, not caring that she’s already in a relationship. It’s just bad. Watch it. It’s hilarious.

the christmas kiss movie horrible christmas movies on netflix

The Christmas Kiss // I just saw this magical piece of crap last night. Starring what I’m calling diet Nina Dobrev and that one hot rich dude, The Christmas Kiss is your typically Hallmark holiday film. It’s a lot less horrible than The Christmas Card was, but still pretty bad. The main character is so typical that it pains me. After the two meet in an elevator and share a spontaneous kiss, she finds out the guy is her boss’s boyfriend. Rather than being creeped out that he would kiss a stranger when he has a girlfriend, she’s bummed that he’s not available? He proceeds to not recognize her when they’re formally introduced. It’s so absolutely ridiculous. Moreover, the best part of this is one of the best friends, Trissa. Shout out to that chick – she tried to save this shit, but she wasn’t enough, sadly.

Love_Actually_movie horrible christmas movies on netflix

Love Actually // I know, I know. I totally put this on my list of favorite Christmas movies, which it is, but let’s be real; it’s pretty bad. The story is all over the place and largely unrealistic.And while I’m willing to suspend my belief in the name of movies, sometimes even I can’t do it. Take, for instance, the fact that Colin Firth’s character falls in love with his Italian housekeeper(?) who speaks very little to no English (but understands him, I think) after like a week or something. And if you think about the crap that happens in the film, it’s more depressing than happy, but that’s just me. I still love it. I’ll still watch it because I love me some British film, but it’s not their best work.


12 Dates of Christmas // This is probably one of the lesser evils of this list, in my opinion, but it could just be that I like Amy Smart. This was fun to watch, in my opinion, but it was basically a complete rip of Groundhog’s Day. I don’t mind that part of it, but the story was typical, the character was a total clingy bitch (up until midway through), and if anything, it showed how horrible she acted toward all the people she knew until she got over her ex. It was a little weird and ended in such a weirdly cookie cutter way, but then some people like that sort of thing. I know I sometimes do LOL. The film centers on Kate, a girl still hung up on her ex from 2 years ago, who has a blind date set for Christmas Eve. After fainting in a local department store, she keeps reliving Christmas Eve over and over which leads her to make different decisions each time.

    Another group of holiday romance movie starring skinny girl #35, and that one hot guy! When are they going to stop producing this kind of stuff? (I love “Love Actually” too. Does that make us bad people?)

      haha I know it’s so bad, but also really good in a horrible kind of way. like watching a car accident happen and just seeing it, but being powerless to stop it. They’ll stop producing it when it doesn’t make any money so I guess someone is watching it lol. And uh NO it does not! Love Actually is redeemable by the fact that Bill Nighy is a total badass in it and all my other favorite British actors show up in it lol.

    I can’t even begin to tell you how much a LOVE “The Christmas Card” –LOL! I especially adore watching these movies with my husband — his snarky (and slightly inappropriate) commentary running throughout. I think his “favorite” one to editorialize is “Christmas Lodge” although unfortunately I haven’t seen it anywhere this year.

      hahah it is seriously one of the worst holiday movies I’ve ever seen, ever. And I can’t believe the mom from Originals is in it! It was fun to watch all these bad movies with my boyfriend and I just riffing on it the whole way through. That definitely makes it worth it haha. I am going to go look up Christmas Lodge right now – might by on YouTube! Merry Xmas and thanks for stopping by! ♥

    I’m not particularly a fan of Christmas movies anyway, but I’d have to agree that most Hallmark movies are… not for me. And lol, I’d have to agree about Love Actually too. I have a few favorites but generally, most of the Christmas-themed movies are pretty bad imo.

      haha me either, but the bad ones can be fun to watch /laugh at. glad I’m not alone in disliking most holiday films 😛

    This is hilarious! We suffered through a movie called A Christmas Tail last year – the acting was so bad, it was actually funny!

    Lol this post had me laughing! At least I know which movies to skip for this wonderful time of year! Usually any “netflix originals” as far as Christmas movies go kind of suck as well.


    1. November 3, 2016 at 10:35 AM

      haha I’m so glad, Silvia! It’s definitely written to help people laugh 😛 Honestly, these movies were so horrible, but I am looking forward to watching more bad holiday movies this year just for the laughs. It’s always fun to dub over the cheesy dialogue 😛 hope you have a lovely holiday season!

    I typically like the Hallmark movies. However, I didn’t like Love Actually. I haven’t watched the other movies. Thanks for the heads up.

    Thank you for sharing this with us on the #HomeMattersParty. We hope to see you again when we open our doors on Friday at 12 AM EST.

    I have never seen any of these Christmas movies, but I think I prefer to keep it that way. LOL Thanks for the warning! Thank you for linking up your post at the #HomeMattersParty. We hope to have you join us again, the door is open Friday at midnight EST.

      haha! they’re worth watching just for laughs, I think! Thanks for visiting me, Nicole!

    I’ve not seen any of these and am working on my top favorite Christmas movies of the year. #TopoftheWorld

    The male lead was terrible in the Christmas Card! I thought he looked really awkward with her. I never knew that the plot was from another movie. I never saw the third and fouth movie but I am glad I missed it. I also did not like the Christmas Kiss because who kisses a total stranger like that especially while in a relationship with someone else! You should try the Amazon Prime Christmas movies they were so terrible! lol

    1. January 22, 2018 at 10:37 AM

      Haha omg it was awful, right?! Seriously!! Some of that plot stuff totally blows my mind. It’s like, if this happened in real life, it would never be considered “okay” or “normal” lol. Thanks for the recommendation! I’ll have to check them out 😛
