These days, complaining that Christmas has become too commercial is as controversial as saying that Hitler was a bad guy, or that the Fox News Channel carries a slight bias. It’s obvious to everyone that one of the holiest days of the Christian year has become over-saturated with rampant acquisitiveness and corporate sanctioned maniacal good cheer.
This trend is captured most horrifically in the lion’s share of Christmas movies that are out there. These films, in almost every situation, wallow in their own shallowness, and tack sappy endings with morally suspect themes in the final ten minutes to make them appear wholesome. No matter how you slice it, there’s no way to argue that most Christmas movies suck.
But which one is the worst?
We here at CC2K are out to crown a champion, and find the all-time worst Christmas movie of all time. It wasn’t easy. We had to dig back into our memory banks, and in some cases actually go out and spend money on these films, all in an attempt to find the one movie that sunk to the very bottom of the list. There are already several notable entries into this canon, but the following pages contain several of our writers’ entries into this contest. No ultimate champion was crowned; that’s for you to decide.
