5 amazing movies to watch, whatever you're in the mood for post-Christmas
Christmas is in the books for another year, and we can’t tell which we’re more stuffed with, pigs in blankets or festive movies.
Just like you probably feel like detoxing your belly with a week’s worth of salad, our eyes and minds need decluttering from all the tinsel and glitter too.
Thankfully we have just the thing, with a host of brilliant, festive-free movies to suit every mood.
But one isn’t enough - you’ve sat through three different versions of A Christmas Carol alone in the last five days. Here are five more movies and box sets to help stave off the post-Chrimbo blues…
Disney, Tim Burton and a magical flying elephant? Yes, 2019’s live-action remake of Dumbo is every bit as delightful as it sounds. Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton do their best to steal the show from the adorable baby elephant in a family-friendly flick which moves the story on from the original 1941 animation.
Stream Dumbo on NOW TV.
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
We guarantee your voice will be hoarse by the time the credits roll, because no one can sit through a Mamma Mia movie without belting out every word to Abba’s classic hits! Let your inhibitions go and throw yourself into a world of romance, rollicking laughs and relentless fun.
Stream Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again on NOW TV.
Mary Poppins Returns
Messing with Mary Poppins felt risky - it’s basically the definition of a classic! - but we should never have doubted Disney would deliver. Emily Blunt’s Poppins will make you feel like an eight-year-old, sat cross-legged on your living room floor, staring at the television in wonder again.
Stream Mary Poppins Returns on NOW TV.
The Mindy Project
Mindy Kaling found fame as Kelly Kapoor on the US version of The Office, but today she’s a bona fide A-lister, and it was The Mindy project that helped take her there. It follows gynecologist Mindy Lahiri (who is based on Kaling’s own mother!) as she attempts to balance a hectic work life with social exuberance. Want six full seasons of belly laughs and big-hearted drama? Look no further.
Stream every episode of The Mindy Project on NOW TV.
Tired of your own family after sleeping in your childhood bed for three straight nights? Ditch them for the Pritchetts, Dumphys and Delgados. No show better captures the hilarity of everyday life with the kids, cousins and in-laws, and trust us, it’ll make you feel better about the three-hour Christmas Day argument with your nan about the sprouts.
