Netflix Surprises Everyone With One More Cheesy Holiday Movie: ‘Christmas Inheritance’
This looks good! Have you watched their first film 'A Christmas Prince' yet?
Netflix has already given us many gifts this holiday season, namely a veritable treasure trove of movies and holiday specials. But the streaming service just announced it has one more surprise for us — another feel-good Christmas movie.
Already, Netflix’s “A Christmas Prince” has been a surprise hit this season. The film tells the story of Prince Richard of Aldovia and an undercover gossip reporter named Amber and how they fall in love against the odds. It’s one of those so-bad-it’s-good movies that you just get sucked into watching.
But beginning on Friday, Dec. 15., fans will have another holiday film to watch (and re-watch). “Christmas Inheritance” checks all the boxes for a cheesy festive film: life lessons, love stories, a blizzard, and it is set in a small town called Snow Falls.
“Christmas Inheritance” follows the socialite Ellen Langford as she gets a crash course on the value of hard work. From the trailer, she begins in very stereotypical socialite fashion. She downs a shot and backflips straight into the Christmas tree while a disapproving well-heeled crowd looks on. But there’s more to this heiress than drunken antics, or there wouldn’t be a full-length film.
In order to inherit her father’s company, she must a town called Snow Falls to deliver a message. She wants to prove to her father she deserves it. What starts as a simple errand turns into the perfect opportunity for Ellen to do just that. Naturally amid the snowstorm she also finds romance and, according to IMDB, “discovers the true gift of Christmas.”
We’ll all have to wait a little bit longer to find out exactly what that is and who she ends up with. You can watch the “Christmas Inheritance” trailer here:
This movie stars Eliza Taylor, Jake Lacy, Andie MacDowell, Michael Xavier and Neil Crone. You may recognize Taylor from “The 100” or the Australian soap opera “Neighbours” and Lacy from “Obvious Child” and “How to Be Single.”
Be patient, whip up some popcorn and tune in on Friday night!
