Critic Reviews for A Christmas Prince

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

By those metrics, A Christmas Prince is an instant classic. It's a Netflix original movie, but it feels like a violation of nature that it somehow isn't from Lifetime or the Hallmark Channel.

If you're into decadent, empty-calorie streaming, Netflix has whipped up quite the seasonal soufflé.

If there's a night where you can't sleep and you're suffering from insomnia, through this on! It's sweet.

Watching this film, though, felt a little like having déjà vu. As each scene proceeded, I thought, I think I know what's going to happen. And I did! Picked it every time.

A Christmas Prince appeared, [is] a warmly lit tale as old as time.

So bad it's good? No. It's so bad it's just plain bad. Did I enjoy it? No. Would I watch it again? Definitely not.

Audience Reviews for A Christmas Prince

The original Netflix film A Christmas Prince is a rather bland and cheesy romantic comedy. Rose Mclver stars as an aspiring reporter who gets her big break when she's assigned to cover the Christmas coronation of an elusive playboy prince who may abdicate the throne, and to get the scoop she goes undercover as a tutor for his younger sister. Mclver gives a serviceable performance, but she doesn't have a lot to work with; as the writing is poor and her co-stars don't bringing anything. And the plot pretty much telegraphs where it's going from the very start, leaving no mystery or suspense. A Christmas Prince has a bit of charm to it, but it's poorly executed and has no passion.

For a sappy, air-headed Christmas romance, this one's a real charmer.

The review I read raving about this can not have been for real. Was this movie actually a piss take? I?m giving it half a star extra assuming it must be because it's more Hallmark than Hallmark.
