Lindsay Lohan's Netflix movie 'Falling for Christmas' marks her return to rom-coms.

Lindsay's Holiday Movie Trailer Has The Perfect Mean Girls Easter Egg

There's no way this was a coincidence.

The rom-com queen is back to make the most wonderful time of the year extra special. Lindsay Lohan is finally returning to helm Netflix’s new holiday movie Falling for Christmas. The movie marks the beginning of a new deal Lohan struck with Netflix, so you’ll be seeing more of her on the streamer in the future. If you’re excited to ring in the holidays with Lindsay Lohan, here’s everything to know about Falling for Christmas, including a first look at the movie and when it will be premiering.

Back in the early aughts, Lohan ruled the screen with a string of endlessly rewatchable hits like Mean Girls, Freaky Friday, and of course, her first-ever movie The Parent Trap. But she began to step away from Hollywood in the 2010s, and has only appeared in small supporting roles in indies or brief cameos as herself in movies since. But that’s all going to change with Falling for Christmas, which will be Lohan’s first lead role in a romantic comedy in more than a decade.

So throw on your Santa hat and start re-learning Cady Heron’s “Jingle Bell Rock” dance routine, because Lohan is bringing the Christmas magic this year.

Falling for Christmas Cast

You can’t have a rom-com with just one lead! In Falling for Christmas, Lohan plays a spoiled hotel heiress (hm, might she draw inspiration from an old friend?) who wakes up with amnesia after a skiing accident. Thankfully, a down-to-earth lodge owner played by Glee alum Chord Overstreet is there for her as she tries to piece her memories back together.


It looks like George Young will be playing the man Lohan’s character is engaged to... until she completely forgets about him. And Olivia Perez will likely play the precocious daughter of Overstreet’s character. Additionally, Lohan’s younger sister, Ali, will appear in the movie, and will have a song with her big sis featured.

Falling for Christmas Trailer

On Oct. 7, Netflix unveiled the trailer for Falling for Christmas, telling the story of how Lohan’s character lost her memory and the aftermath of the accident, all set against the cute and cozy vibes of small-town holiday cheer.

But that’s not the only element of the trailer that’s getting fans excited. If you listen to the song playing in the background of the trailer, you’ll recognize a familiar Christmas carol — one made even more popular by Lohan’s iconic talent show scene in Mean Girls. “Jingle Bell Rock” lives on.

Previously, Netflix released photos from Falling for Christmas, and they are cozy AF.


Falling for Christmas Release Date

Lohan announced that Falling for Christmas will arrive as an early holiday present. It’ll land on Netflix on Nov. 10, 2022.
