“Single All the Way” Crowns Jennifer Coolidge the New Queen of Christmas

Watch the trailer for the LGBTQ holiday rom-com hitting Netflix on December 2.

Move over, Mariah Carey. There’s a new Christmas queen shimmying down the chimney, and her name is Jennifer Coolidge!

Netflix has dropped the first trailer for its upcoming gay holiday rom-com, Single All the Way, and we have already donned our gay apparel in anticipation.

Earlier this year, the streaming giant announced that the movie would star Michael Urie, Philemon Chambers, and Luke MacFarlane, along with Barry Bostwick, Jennifer Robertson, Jennifer Coolidge, and Kathy Najimy.

According to the Netflix description, Single All the Way follows Peter (Michael Urie), who is “desperate to avoid his family’s judgment about his perpetual single status. He convinces his best friend Nick to join him for the holidays and pretend that they’re now in a relationship. But when Peter’s mother sets him up on a blind date with her handsome trainer James (MacFarlane) — the plan goes awry.”

The new preview includes plenty of holly-jolly jokes and our first look at MacFarlane as Peter’s dreamy date. However, it is Coolidge asking about Grindr dates and wondering why the gays are “always obsessed” with her that makes us think Single All the Way will become an annual holiday rewatch.

“Celebrating Christmas in springtime with this amazing group of artists must mean I was good this year,” Urie said in a statement when the movie was announced. “Chad Hodge has written a laugh-out-loud-funny and lump-in-throat-sweet movie that [director] Michael Mayer will effortlessly lift off the page. My mom is Kathy Najimy, my dad is Barry Bostwick, and my aunt is Jennifer Coolidge — if that isn’t some kinda gay Christmas miracle, I don’t know what is.”

Single All the Way hits Netflix on December 2. Watch the trailer below, and get ready to deck the halls.
 

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
