Critic Reviews for The Princess Switch

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

  • Everyone in A Princess Switch does just fine: Hudgens has a lot of fun, particularly as Stacy (fake accent aside), Sagar and Palladio are charming in different ways, and they manage to bring the whole thing in for an appropriately silly ending.

  • Much like The Christmas Prince, the plot is no more than half-baked, but these "prince and pauper" stories are classics for a reason.

  • Exactly what the hopeless romantic ordered for their Christmas viewing this season. This is likely one that will be in heavy rotation throughout December.

  • It's a mess, but it's a jolly fun mess.
