Are you a glass half-empty or half-full type of person? If you’re the former, you may have noticed there are not quite as many (often cheesy) holiday movies to cozy up to while eating copious amounts of popcorn this season as there have been in recent years past. If you’re the latter, you know that means you have more time to watch everything you actually want to watch. And the good news, regardless of whichever camp you fall into, is that there are still plenty of new festive titles debuting this winter. Ahead, we’ve picked five that are on our radar, including a fun romcom starring Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester, a family-friendly flick with former ELLE Canada cover star Tracee Ellis Ross and Eddie Murphy and a classic holiday special from Ted Lasso’s Hannah Waddingham.

Best. Christmas. Ever! (Netflix)

Personally, I would not suggest meticulously tracking a former classmate’s life from afar until your obsession becomes so involved that you take it upon yourself to prove that their apparently picture-perfect life is nothing but a sham, but I can see how that might make an amusing premise for a movie. Enter Best. Christmas. Ever!, which starts when Charlotte (Heather Graham) receives the annual holiday newsletter from her college friend Jackie (Brandy). Charlotte feels stuck in life, while Jackie just sold her successful company for millions and an early retirement. When Charlotte and her family accidentally end up at Jackie’s house close to Christmas, Jackie invites them to stay, eventually leading to Charlotte trying to find the holes in her friend’s dreamy life.

EXmas (Prime Video)

One look at this punny title and you can probably guess what this holiday romcom is about. EXmas follows former couple Ali (Leighton Meester) and Graham (Canadian Robbie Amell), who are still feeling some anger after calling off their engagement. Graham is a workaholic who doesn’t plan on going home to his family for Christmas—until he changes his mind at the last minute and decides to surprise them, only to find that Ali got an invite in his stead. Let the bickering-fuelled chaos ensue…followed by a little romance, I’m sure.

Candy Cane Lane (Prime Video)

On paper, the comedic talents of Eddie Murphy and Tracee Ellis Ross seem like a great on-screen match—and this holiday season we’ll get to find out if our suspicions are true. Murphy stars in Candy Cane Lane as Chris, a man who is determined to win the Christmas decorating contest his neighbourhood is throwing. To do so, he’ll stop at pretty much nothing, which is how he ends up accidentally signing a deal with a mischievous elf (Jillian Bell) who casts a spell wreaking festive havoc all over the town. Now Chris, his wife, Carol (Ross) and their kids must figure out how to break the spell and save Christmas.

Hannah Waddingham: Home for Christmas (Apple TV+)

If Ted Lasso accomplished just one thing (let’s not talk about season three, thank you), it’s that it made me a fan of star Hannah Waddingham (AFC Richmond owner Rebecca Welton) for life. Now she gets to show off her charming chops in a gift-ready package with her new holiday variety special Hannah Waddingham: Home for Christmas. Expect singing, dancing and more typically seasonal fun, as well as appearances from some of Waddingham’s Ted Lasso co-stars, including Phil Dunster and Juno Temple, and other celebs like Luke Evans and Leslie Odom Jr.

Dashing Through the Snow (Disney+)

There are two types of Christmas celebrators: those who are obsessed with the holiday season, and those who are kind of grinches about it. In Dashing Through the Snow, Eddie (Ludacris) is the latter and his daughter, Charlotte (Madison Skye Validum), is the latter. When his ex-wife (Teyonah Parris) asks Chris to take Charlotte out on Christmas Eve, the pair get pulled into a hard-to-believe adventure involving a man in a red suit named Nick (Lil Rel Howery) that just might restore Christmas magic for the entire family.
