Netflix's new 'Best. Christmas. Ever!' branded ‘worst movie of all time’ by viewers

'Tis the season when many of us gather to enjoy a Christmas movie, but Netflix's latest holiday release hasn't received a warm reception from viewers.
Few things in life compare to the joy of getting comfortable during the chilly months, surrounded by festive decorations, and indulging in a Christmas film.

Each person has their go-to favorites, and for me, choosing between Love Actually and Home Alone is a tough decision.

Christmas movies hold a special place in our hearts, so when a new one hits the scene, there's heightened anticipation. Unfortunately, Netflix's recent release, titled Best. Christmas. Ever!, seems to have left many viewers feeling quite disappointed.

Watch the trailer for Best. Christmas. Ever! below:

Starring Jason Biggs, Heather Graham, Matt Cedeño, and Brandy Norwood, the movie revolves around a fateful event that brings two families together on December 25, putting their friendships to the ultimate test.

Despite currently securing the second spot on Netflix's global Weekly Top 10 list of most-watched movies, the film's popularity might be driven by less favorable reasons.

As of now, it has garnered a meager 41% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a modest 4.4 on IMDb.

On social media, viewers have not held back in expressing their discontent with the movie. One person pondered the plot of #BestChristmasEver, while another Twitter user straightforwardly declared it as "probably the worst Christmas movie I’ve seen in a long time."
One viewer used strong language, declaring, "On a scale of 1-10, the new Netflix movie 'Best. Christmas. Ever!' is the worst movie of all time."

Expressing dissatisfaction, another user commented, "I didn’t like the new movie with Brandy in it 'Best Christmas Ever.' I still don’t understand the plot."

However, it's not entirely negative, as Courtney Howard from Variety offered a more positive perspective: "Perhaps the greatest gift of all is that Best. Christmas. Ever! not only ties into the Netflix Holiday Cinematic Universe (as characters are seen watching Falling for Christmas and The Princess Switch 3 on TV) but also enhances it by providing a solid new entry filled with charm and sweetness."

Jeffrey Lyles of Lyles Movie Files commented, "While Christmas movies often succumb to the 'more, more, more' trap, Best. Christmas. Ever! serves as a delightful reminder to pause and appreciate what you have. It sets a positive tone for the Christmas movie season."

On the contrary, Benjamin Lee from the Guardian was not as generous, giving it a one-star rating and stating, "Clocking in at under 80 minutes, it barely qualifies as a movie; it feels more like a prolonged montage of snippets that never develop into proper scenes. While it may be the first Netflix Christmas film of the year, it's challenging to envision it getting any worse."

Expressing a different perspective, the statement suggests a willingness to watch the movie despite negative reviews, emphasizing the notion that there's no such thing as bad publicity.
