‘Best. Christmas. Ever!’ is the number one film on Netflix US

The holiday season has officially kicked off on Netflix, and audiences around the globe are embracing the festive spirit with open arms. 

Topping the charts as the number one film in the United States and making waves in 82 other countries, including the UK, Australia, Denmark, Venezuela, and South Africa, Best. Christmas. Ever! has become the holiday delight that viewers can’t get enough of.

Directed by the talented Mary Lambert—who directed many of Madonna’s early, iconic music videos, including ‘Like a Virgin’, ‘Material Girl’, ‘La Isla Bonita’, and ‘Like a Prayer’—and written by Todd Gallicano and Charles Shyer, this 2023 Christmas comedy stars Heather Graham, Brandy Norwood, Matt Cedeño, and Jason Biggs.

Released on November 16th, 2023, Best. Christmas. Ever! has swiftly surpassed other notable films, such as David Fincher’s The Killer, starring Michael Fassbender, showcasing its universal appeal.

The story revolves around Charlotte and Rob Sanders, an ordinary couple living a modest life in a small apartment. The story takes an unexpected turn when Charlotte’s college friend, Jackie Jennings, and her seemingly perfect family become the focal point of envy and scepticism. Jackie’s annual Christmas letter, detailing her family’s extraordinary achievements, serves as the catalyst for Charlotte’s musings about her own family’s perceived mediocrity.

When a misunderstanding leads the Sanders family to spend Christmas at the Jennings’ home, they find themselves snowed in and forced to confront their own insecurities. Charlotte’s scepticism intensifies, leading her to snoop around the Jennings’ household while the children go on their own misguided mission to expose a mall Santa, creating a comedic yet heartwarming tale of self-discovery and the true meaning of Christmas.

Best. Christmas. Ever! is undoubtedly the feel-good film of the season, bringing joy and laughter to audiences worldwide. You can watch Best. Christmas. Ever! on Netflix and catch the trailer here:
