Single All the Way (2021)
Director: Michael Mayer
Cast: Michael Urie, Philemon Chambers, Jennifer Coolidge
Easily the best of Netflix’s avalanche of original holiday content in 2021, this might also be the year’s best romcom: the story of a man who convinces his best buddy to pretend to be his boyfriend in order to placate his matchmaking family. Any film featuring cinematic treasure Jennifer Coolidge as Glinda the Good Witch in a community theatre Christmas pageant is instantly watchable, but it’s the great big heart at the centre that positions Single all the Way for perennial status.
