Streaming users embrace the unoriginal to launch a formulaic instant favorite to #1 in 52 countries

It’s that time of year where everyone suddenly becomes overcome by the urge to watch as many schmaltzy, sappy, sentimental, and formulaic festive films as possible, while also finding the time to argue over whether or not Die Hard is a Christmas movie. True to form, Something from Tiffany’s has embraced cliche to become a substantial success on streaming.
