Critic Reviews for The Princess Switch

  • 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.

  • Put it this way: I wasn't always positive which character I was watching onscreen, but I always knew that whoever she was, I was rooting for her.

  • The Princess Switch is not innovative or particularly creative, but Hudgens is charming enough to make me sit through the entire thing.

  • For its many, many flaws, there is something quite charming and enjoyable about this botched attempt at a Christmas rom-com.

  • Do not expect it to be incisive in any aspect. [Full Review in Spanish]

    February 25, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Much like The Christmas Prince, the plot is no more than half-baked, but these "prince and pauper" stories are classics for a reason.
