Lindsay Lohan celebrates Mean Girls day with the first look at her upcoming romantic comedy, Falling for Christmas. The actress, who found major fame following her performance as estranged twin sisters Halle and Annie in 1998’s The Parent Trap, went on to star in various iconic movies throughout the late ’90s and early 2000s, including Life-Size, Freaky Friday, and Mean Girls. Falling for Christmas will be the first movie to debut from the actress’s three-picture deal with Netflix, with Lohan serving as producer alongside director Janeen Damian. The rom-com will mark Lohan’s first major role in a feature film in almost a decade.
Falling for Christmas will follow Lohan as a recently engaged, spoiled heiress who suffers from amnesia following a ski accident, and is taken in under the care of blue-collar widower and his daughter at Christmastime. Glee’s Chord Overstreet will star opposite Lohan as her down-and-out love interest. The most recent feature-length film Lohan starred in was almost ten years ago, alongside James Deen in IFC’s The Canyons (2013). The only roles Lohan has taken since include smaller parts in the 2015 short film Till Human Voices Wake Us and in the 2019 indie horror film Among the Shadows.
Now, to celebrate the iconic date in pop culture history when Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett) asked Cady (Lohan) what day it was in Mean Girls, Lindsay Lohan shared the first look at Falling for Christmas. Lohan revealed the official poster on her Instagram, along with the caption, “it’s October 3rd. now mark your calendars for November 10th.” Check out the official poster above:
Falling For Christmas Could Be Lindsay Lohan’s Comeback Role
While Lohan has struggled to attain the same movie-star status she held in the 2000s, Falling for Christmas could be the perfect opportunity for her comeback. As Netflix is still the No. 1 streaming platform in the world, it offers limitless potential for Lohan’s big return to be promoted to millions of Americans, all from the comfort of their home. It seems less risky to launch her return to acting in the streaming world than a theatrical debut. Plus, the holiday season brings families together around the fireplace to watch a movie or two, and Netflix’s Christmas content has historically brought in favorable audiences.
However, a place on Netflix’s holiday lineup does not guarantee success. The quality of Falling for Christmas will affect how audiences view Lohan’s comeback. While Netflix has succeeded in the past with such films as A Christmas Prince, The Christmas Chronicles and The Princess Switch, not every holiday flick has been as well-received. Still, the mere inclusion of Lohan should be enough to bring in viewers, and by the looks of these first few glimpses, it seems Netflix is following a similar formula to its previous holiday triumphs to ensure Lohan’s return is a success. Only time will tell, but, hopefully, fans will be delighted when Falling for Christmas hits Netflix this November 10.
