Each State’s Most Searched ’90s Christmas Movie

Last Updated on December 3, 2021 by Zoi Walker

Jump to:

Every holiday season, families gather together to enjoy their favorite holiday films. For many families, that means watching some of the iconic Christmas movies of the ‘90s like The Nightmare Before Christmas or Home Alone, which have lived on in pop culture in the form of internet memes or even Lego creations

Even though most families probably won’t be going to a rental store to get a VHS tape or waiting for Christmas reruns on TV this year, they’ll certainly be revisiting some of their favorite ’90s classics, so we decided to take a look at which of these nostalgic holiday films are being searched for the most in each state leading into the yuletide season.

The Top 5 Movies on the ’90s Nice List

  • Home Alone is the most popular ’90s Christmas classic nationwide, with 14 states googling it most, including Illinois, the state where the film takes place. Home Alone is also the highest grossing film on our list, earning $476 million worldwide, and has won 11 awards including “Favorite Movie” at the 1991 Kids’ Choice Awards. This year the storyline will be introduced to a younger generation with the reboot Home Sweet Home Alone, available exclusively on Disney+. 
  • Although Jingle All the Way has the lowest Metacritic score on our list at 34, it is the most searched movie in nine states. For fans hoping to watch Jingle All the Way this holiday season, Disney+ recently added the movie to its library. 
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas is the most searched in six states. The animated children’s film has the highest IMDB and Metacritic scores of any film on our list. Good news for fans of The Nightmare Before Christmas—a sequel to the movie, Long Live the Pumpkin Queen, will debut in July of 2022 as a young adult novel. 
  • Dumb and Dumber tops the list in four states, rounding out our top five. Released in December of 1994, Dumb and Dumber developed a cult following in the years after its release. In 2000, the movie was voted the fifth greatest comedy film of all by the readers of Total Film magazine.
