Holidays in 2020 will look like none ever before — especially on Netflix.
In a bid to compete with, uh, Hallmark, the streaming giant is pumping out tons of Christmas fare, and the wacko movies are totally high on candy canes.
Their plots, casting and music are loonier than an elf who wants to be a dentist.
Here, we rank them from 1 nutcracker (perfectly normal) to 4 nutcrackers (demented).
“Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square”
Bonkers plot: The glamorous Dolly Parton plays a crooning homeless woman — dressed in her shabbiest cashmere and clutching a giant cardboard “change” box — who is actually an angel in disguise. Meanwhile, a singing Christine Baranski plays a cold, rich woman named Regina who plans to evict an entire town to build a giant mall. Angel Dolly must teach Regina the error of her corporate ways. Perhaps to keep warm doing a cold December, the citizens can’t stop tap dancing.
What’s that person doing here?: Jenifer Lewis as the belting owner of a hair salon.
Schmaltzy moral: Basically “It’s a Wonderful Life, Y’all!” Nine to five, it’s all takin’ and no givin’.
Nutcracker rating: 4 nutcrackers
