The holidays are a magical time to spend with friends and loved ones. It’s the perfect time to snuggle up and turn on some of the most beloved holiday films of all time. From Home Alone to A Christmas Story, Hollywood has given us a slew of holidays classics that we all turn to time and time again. Unfortunately, with the good also comes the bad. For every Elf, there is going to be a Christmas with the Kranks.
Though the entertainment industry continues to capitalize on holiday cheer, they’ve often got things very wrong. Even if they have the holidays as their central theme, some holiday films are so horrible, outrageous, and unpleasant, that they could singlehandedly ruin the season of giving. One holiday flick is so dreadful that it garnered a whopping 0% on Rotten Tomatoes (page 15). Here are the worst holiday movies of all time.
15. Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever
- Rotten Tomatoes score: 27%
We’re not sure how the amazing Aubrey Plaza got roped into the Lifetime disaster that is Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, but we’re sure the Parks and Recreation alum wants to forget it ever happened. Plaza voices a grumpy old kitty who helps a little girl find the spirit of the holidays. Part of Plaza’s charm is her deadpan expressions, but as a cat, she came off as bored and disinterested as we all were.
Not only was the actress miscast, but as The A.V. Club described it, the film is “the largest turd in [Lifetime’s] crap crown of original programming.”
