What could possibly get you in the holiday spirit more than this outlandish comedy following our favorite moms trying to get through the holidays?

In the sequel to the hit 2016 comedy about three mothers (played by Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn) who decide to throw aside their motherly responsibilities and have fun, the trio now have to deal their moms (Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines, and Susan Sarandon) over the holidays.

The comedy follows a mother (Rachel Oniga) whose holiday wish is for her sons (played by Abayomi Alvin, Kunle Remi, and Efa Iwara) to get married.

And to motivate them, she tells her boys that the first to get hitched will be rewarded with her palatial house in his inheritance.

You can't go wrong with watching "The Christmas Chronicles" movies right about now.

The original and its sequel starring Kurt Russell as a super cool (and at times not scared to bust out into song) Santa is extremely entertaining.

"Dolly Parton's Christmas on the Square"

This faith-based holiday movie stars Dolly Parton as an angel who visits the Scrooge-like Regina (Christine Baranski), a woman on the verge of evicting her hometown's residents so she can cash in on the building of a megamall.

Parton also wrote all the songs that are performed in the movie.

"An Elf Story: The Elf on the Shelf"

For many of us, it's about that time to get the Elf on the Shelf out of hiding.

This fun 26-minute animated movie is a fun watch for the kids as we watch one Elf who sets out to help a child become a true believer.

There are also several more Elf on the Shelf shorts on Netflix if your kids are looking for more.

"Eyes Wide Shut"

Now for something completely different.

Marking the final movie of legendary director Stanley Kubrick, here Tom Cruise plays a Manhattan doctor who sets out one night during the holiday season on an evening of debauchery after learning that his wife (played by Cruise's then-real wife Nicole Kidman) has unfaithful desires.

Things don't go as planned.

"Falling for Christmas"

In this holiday rom-com, Lindsay Lohan stars as a spoiled hotel heiress who is now in the care of a blue-collar lodge owner after getting amnesia following a skiing accident.

Kat Graham stars as Abby, a struggling photographer who is gifted an Advent calendar by her grandfather. She soon realizes that the calendar is magical and could lead to her finding her true love over the holidays.
