We all have those Christmas movies that we can't wait to see every year. They usually play over and over again on TV, but even if they don't, you still find a way to watch them. Elf, Home Alone, and all of the others! Even though we love these movies, there are some Christmas movies that do not get the praise they deserve. Here is a list of the 5 most underrated Christmas movies:

 

1. Christmas Cupid (2010)

Christmas Cupid is a modern take on A Christmas Carol. Sloane (Christina Milian) is a public relations representative for a huge movie star, Caitlin Quinn (Ashley Benson).
