Boughs of cheesy Christmas movies that are amazing

Love at the Thanksgiving Day Parade


Your typical modern Pride & Prejudice with a holiday twist.  A perky, bubbly woman is in charge of running Chicago's Thanksgiving Day Parade (Chicago has a parade?), but she gets news that funding for the parade might get cut.  Enter the Darcy-esque guy, who would be in charge of said fund-cutting.  They dislike each other immediately, and yet they are constantly thrown together.  Mix in a would-be fiancé, an ex-girlfriend, and nutty movie night, and you have yourself a gloriously enjoyable cheesewad movie.  

The March Sisters at Christmas


As the title may suggest, this is a modern take on Little Women - and a lame one at that.  But who says lame can't be enjoyable?  We find Meg (a blonde), Jo (blonde), Beth, and Amy (a brunette in this version) trying to fix up their old home so their parents won't sell it.  Meg is dating some nerd, but still has feelings for her ex, John Brooke.  Jo is trying to get published, but she thinks the editor, Mr. Bhaer, has it out for her.  Theodore "Teddy" Lawrence is their next door neighbor, and Jo's best friend her entire life.  Their friendship is basically the greatest thing ever, and a big part of why this movie is adorable.

Hitched for the Holidays


I think it's an accepted fact that if Joey Lawrence is in it, then it's going to be lametastic.  I'm fairly certain that all of his movies have the same plot: guy and girl fake dating, they start to really fall in love, their 'fake' relationship is exposed, they have their sad montage set to a sad {Christmas} song, he realizes he's really in love with her, and makes a grand gesture to get her back.  Crap, I just gave the story away.  This movie may be cliché of clichés, but it's entertaining, and the guy and the girl are sweet together.

Love at the Christmas Table


You guys.  I did not expect this movie to change my life.
I kid... but this movie is seriously adorable.  Omg.  Yes, it's cheesy, and the acting is whatevs, but the story is so.cute.  It's so cute I don't want to spoil it for you.  Let me just say... Luke from Gilmore Girls is in it. HA!

In conclusion, if you aren't a Scrooge and enjoy these cheap holiday movies, please watch these four in particular.  Especially the first and last ones.  Please.

Merry Christmas!
