Where to watch Four Christmases
Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn in Four Christmases.

Christmas romantic comedies are a tricky thing, especially in Four Christmases, where the main couple, Brad McVie (Vince Vaughn) and Kate Kinkaid (Reese Witherspoon), are already together when the film begins. The King of Kong documentary helmer Seth Gordon made his scripted directorial debut with Four Christmases, and both Witherspoon and Vaughn had previous rom-com experience under their belts when the film opened in theaters in 2008. It has since become a popular Christmas movie.

Four Christmases gets its title from the fact that Brad and Kate both come from homes that were split up by divorces. Brad's parents, Howard McVie (Robert Duvall) and Paula (Sissy Spacek), each have their own families now. The same is true for Kate's parents, Creighton (Jon Voight) and Marilyn Kinkaid (Mary Steenburgen). To avoid having to spend time at any of the respective four family gatherings, Brad and Kate have always made sure that they were out of town for the holidays.

Where to watch The Family Stone
The cast of The Family Stone.

There are plenty of heartwarming family Christmas movies that will just make you feel good to have loved ones. The Family Stone is not one of those movies, although it's definitely a Christmas flick! This 2005 dramady tends to veer more toward drama than comedy, but there are definitely a lot of funny moments at the expense of Meredith Morton (Sarah Jessica Parker). Meredith is the girlfriend of Everett Stone (Dermot Mulroney), and she is dreading the idea of spending the holidays with the Stone family because she doesn't fit in with her potential in-laws. And the family really doesn't like Meredith at all.

Desperate for any kind of emotional backup, Meredith calls her sister, Julie Morton (Claire Danes), to join her for Christmas with the Stone family. But much to everyone's surprise, Everett and Julie soon start to show more chemistry as a couple than Meredith does with her own boyfriend. That's only one of the reasons why there's going to be an emotional reckoning before this Christmas is over.

Where to watch Elf, the Will Ferrell Christmas movie
Will Ferrell in Elf.

Twenty years ago, who would have guessed that Elf would become one of the all-time great Christmas movies? It was only the second feature film helmed by Jon Favreau, and it was one of Will Ferrell's first leading roles following his long stint on Saturday Night Live. That combination proved to be too irresistible for audiences to pass up, which is why Elf is now celebrating two decades as a perennial holiday hit.

Ferrell stars as Buddy the elf, who just happens to be biologically human. Buddy grew up in the North Pole surrounded by elves who work for Santa Claus. He just doesn't fit in very well among the elves. One holiday season, Santa gives Buddy the inspiration to travel from the North Pole to New York City so he can meet the father he never knew. That's the basic setup for Elf, and now we're going to tell you where you can stream it this holiday season.
