‘Tis the season for Christmas movies. And while there are plenty of great classic Christmas films to watch for the umpteenth time this holiday season, there are also plenty of terrible Christmas movies out there that you should avoid like the plague. For every It’s A Wonderful Life, there seems to be a Christmas with the Kranks. And while the good Christmas movies are usually in heavy rotation at this time of year, many of the worst Christmas movies are also shown on TV a lot each December. Here is a list of Christmas movies so awful they’d make Santa’s naughty list – in case you’re wondering what to avoid this year.
21. Santa’s Little Helper
Produced by WWE Studios in 2015, Santa’s Little Helper is a painful direct-to-DVD movie starring WWE superstars The Miz and Paige, as well as Nip/Tuck’s AnnaLynne McCord. After losing his job, the fast-talking Dax (Miz) is hand-picked by Santa Claus to replace his second-in-command and resume the role of Santa’s Little Helper. Before he can do so, Santa’s daughter Eleanor (Paige) envokes an obscure North Pole law that allows her to challenge Dax for a position. Riveting stuff, eh?
Although the acting was better than initially expected, the reality is, Santa’s Little Helper is so dull it even lacks that hilariously-bad quality that makes even some of the worst Christmas movies watching. Sadly, this is not one of them.
