Romantic comedies and holiday movies are the kinds of cinematic comfort food that makes you want to cozy up in front of the TV and escape the stress of the season. And when you put the two together, holiday rom-coms are their own special treat. The Hallmark Channel and Lifetime have cornered the market on cheesy romantic holiday goodness with such delights as “The 12 Men of Christmas” and “The 12 Dates of Christmas” and “The Spirit of Christmas.” And recently Netflix has gotten into the game with titles like “A Christmas Prince” and “The Holiday Calendar.”
This week, Paul Feig is back with “Last Christmas,” a holiday rom-com starring Emilia Clarke as a woman who is sabotaging her own life after an illness. But everything changes after she meets a handsome stranger (Henry Golding). To celebrate the release and welcome the holiday season, today we look at ten of the best holiday-centered romantic comedies.
