Christmas Movies That Aren’t Full of Christmas Cheer

We all like Christmas movies. The cheer and the festivities in them bring us all happiness, but sometimes there’s only so much cheer we can take. Sometimes, watching Christmas movie after Christmas movie gets old. Don’t feel bad about it! 

Below is a list I compiled for those people tired of the same Hallmark or Lifetime Christmas movies! The movies generated below aren’t your typical Christmas movies, but they do revolve around Christmas!

The Family Stone

Starring Diane Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Sarah Jessica Parker, Luke Wilson, and Dermot Mulroney, this Christmas movie is filled to the brink with dysfunctional family drama. (APL)

Four Christmases

Starring Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon, not only is the family dysfunctional (is there a theme here?) but it’s a comedy as well! (BOTH APL AND DPL)

The Holiday

Starring Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, and Jack Black. Two women needing a break from their lives, decide to switch houses and lives during Christmastime.  (BOTH APL AND DPL)

Little Women

An iconic movie based on the classic written by Louisa May Alcott. This movie is filled with Christmas cheer as well as Christmas Tragedy. (APL)

Love Actually

Follows the lives of nine very different people whose lives intertwine because of one emotion: LOVE. (APL)

The Family Man

A workaholic gets the chance to see what his life could have been if he’d stayed with his college sweetheart Kate. (APL)
