Lindsay Lohan last appeared as a leading lady in the drama The Canyons. In the romantic comedy Falling for Christmas, which is being produced by Netflix, the Parent Trap star is making a comeback almost 10 years after the film’s release. Fans are thrilled to see her in a new project, but the movie nod to one of her well-known movies, Mean Girls, is likely to excite them even more.
Mean Girls Was Iconic
You might be reminded of the famous scene from Mean Girls where Cady, played by Lindsay Lohan, sings “Jingle Bell Rock” to save her and The Plastics’ dance routine after their CD player breaks in the middle of the song. The 36-year-old actress claimed during an appearance on Live With Kelly and Ryan that she came up with a pitch while speaking with the directors and producers about her desire to somehow incorporate the well-known song. She had originally intended to perform the iconic teen comedy dance with the cast during a blooper reel at the end of the film. She then quickly regretted that advice, so it was dropped at the time.
The crew still desired to use the cheery Christmas jingle despite this, though. The team remembered the star’s suggestion to include the song “Jingle Bell Rock” in the movie at some point during post-production. They chose to have Lohan record a version of the song for the end credits because the film had already been edited at that point. The movie’s trailer even featured the song.
Lindsay Lohan in Falling for Christmas
Fans first got a glimpse of Falling for Christmas in a set photo featuring Chord Overstreet and Lindsay Lohan, who looked very cute together. Being able to watch Lohan in this type of production once more is very satisfying. She has the opportunity to return to her comedic roots, which she developed in Disney films, and more mature fare like Just My Luck.
According to the critics’ evaluations of Falling for Christmas, Lohan truly shines. While other critics pointed out that the Netflix film adheres to well-worn tropes, it nonetheless seems to have a lot of heart and humor. And this isn’t Lohan’s first time working with the streaming service; in Irish Wish, in which a woman wakes up as a bride after wishing to find love, she will appear in another romantic comedy.
The actress/singer Lindsay Lohan’s performance in Falling for Christmas has so many amusing moments that will make viewers smile, and her performance of “Jingle Bell Rock” is just the cherry on top.
