One of the very best of Netflix's increasingly Hallmark-rivaling roster of live-action holiday originals, this musical tale of a jaded toymaker given another shot at magic is a visual feast of splashy special effects, eye-popping choreography and seasonally appropriate sentimentality. Rated TV-PG.
We all have our holiday-viewing traditions. They often involve a cup of hot cocoa and big warm blanket, but perrennial movie habits differ from household to household. Maybe you're all about watching Ralphie descend the stairs of his Cleveland house in a rabbit suit, or witnessing George Bailey’s realization that, hey, it really is a wonderful life. Whether you’re into classics, comedies, holiday horrors or animated dazzlers, there’s a movie out there for you.
But with all the repetition of the holidays, it's easy to miss out on other fantastic holiday fare. To help you forge new traditions, we rounded up 25 of our favorite family-focused holiday movies. You won’t find shorts and specials like Rudolph and Frosty (those are over here, should you need some ideas), but you’ll definitely find 25 great reasons to curl up on the couch for a couple hours.
