As the days get colder and the holiday draws near, we’re reminded of Winston Churchhill’s famous quote, “Christmas is a season not only of rejoicing but of reflection.” Now, I don’t know about you, but Goliath’s idea of reflection starts with a tall glass of egg nog (maybe two), new PJs, our loved ones, and watching as many Christmas movies as humanly possible. From National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation to Home Alone, it doesn’t feel quite like the holidays until Clark Griswald finds the perfect tree or Kevin makes his family disappear.
If you’re looking for something festive to watch over the holidays and want to avoid the duds, join us as we countdown 30 of our favorite (& least favorite) Christmas movies, in descending order.
30. Don’t: Santa with Muscles
Santa with Muscles is an astonishingly lousy movie starring WWE legend Hulk Hogan as Blake Thorn (Hogan), a self-made billionaire who suffers amnesia after hitting his head, wakes up in a Santa suit, and believes he’s the real Santa. Hogan then ends up at an orphanage full of children and as his memories return, he agrees to save them from the evil scientist looking to obtain the energy crystals located under their orphanage… we’re not making this up.
Santa with Muscles is the kind of movie that’s so bad you’ve probably never seen the ending or remember how things turn out. What in the world was Ed Begley Jr. and Garret Morris thinking?
