And yes, these Hallmark holiday movies are super fun to watch, but we can’t help but notice they all seem a little similar. SNL hilariously mocks that idea with these commercials for “Yes, Santa” and “Prince Santa,” which feature James Franco as “Canadian handsome Chris Bearwick.” In both, he plays the town heartthrob who just might actually be Santa. And then there’s “Kitchen Christmas Wish,” where a small-town baker’s holiday wish goes terribly wrong.
This cut-for-time sketch also features the ever-funny Kate McKinnon as “Jessica Normal” and pokes fun at the fact that Hallmark movies always seem to star actors who are recognizable, but whose names you just can’t remember.
“You’ll be asking … wait, how do I know that actor?” says Cecily Strong in a voiceover.
She goes on to say “It’s quantity over quality, people, and we are just blasting you with these.” Touché.
Still, we can’t pretend that we haven’t been watching our favorite Hallmark Christmas movies all month (sometimes with a glass of wine and this fun drinking game). After all, tis the season!
