Our Criteria

We want you to sit down with the right kind of Christmas rom-com this holiday season. That’s why we’ve ranked each of our romantic Christmas movies based on the festive criteria that matters – the laughs, the cries, the sing-along factor, and the feel-good factor:


The burst-out-laughing factor. Is it a comedy full of gags and jokes? Does it offer lots of laughs?


The sobbing uncontrollably factor. Is it a tear jerker? Does it pull at your heartstrings?

Sing-Along Factor

The holiday music factor. Is it a musical full of festive tunes? Will you be humming along?

Feel-Good Factor

The feel-good factor. Will you be smiling from ear to ear once the credits roll? Does it leave you with a warm feeling inside?

Romantic Christmas Rom-Coms

Looking for rom-com Christmas movies that’ll fill your stockings with love and joy? Fancy a romantic night-in with cosy Christmas love films that make you laugh out loud and cry into your mince pies? Watch these oh so charming Christmas romantic movies from the past few decades. You can’t beat a good rom-com. 

1. Holidate (2020)

17/20 Love Score

One of Netflix’s newest festive rom-coms. 

Emma Roberts plays a forever-single Sloane and Luke Bracey is her Australian golfer crush, Jackson. Will she finally fall in love? And most importantly, will her parents ever stop judging her hopeless attempts of meeting ‘the one’? Thankfully Holidate takes a surprisingly fresh route down the rom-com formula too.

2. A Very Merry Mix-Up (2013)

16/20 Love Score

A corny but charming Hallmark TV movie. 

Alice (Alicia Witt) plays an antique store owner who visits her fiance’s hometown for the holidays. She’s meeting his family for the very first time, but (somehow?) ends up at the wrong house. Alice soon discovers her bond with the wrong family is stronger than her bond with her fiance’s family. What a palava!
