There are a few Christmas films that are undeniable classics.
Think It’s a Wonderful Life. Think Elf. Don’t mention Love, Actually – we don’t have time to get into that just now.
But once you’ve watched the classics, there’s a whole new genre to get stuck into over your mulled wine.
A genre that’s perhaps best described with the word ‘cheesy’.
You can probably guess some of the plotlines.
Successful city girl goes back to her home town for Christmas and ends up rediscovering a) the true meaning of the season and b) her still-hot high school boyfriend.
Then there’s the one where the girl meets a boy who turns out to be a prince. Or the widowed man who learns to love again.
