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 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.
... it's everything you want a holiday film to be: cheesy, hopeful, a little bit ridiculous, and overall as warm and toasty as the fireplace you're watching it next to.
A cute Christmas movie. It's not meant to be taken too seriously and kept me entertained throughout even if at times I was poking fun of its predictability.
The holidays sparkle in light, romantic fairy tale.
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.
