Review:

Christmas and royalty and romance, a combination I’m only now realizing I enjoy.

Snow and pretty horses, check.

Snobby, grasping blond, check.

Cheesy dialogue, longing glances, and a complete castle transformation for Christmas, check.

Last, but not least, a misunderstanding that almost ruins it all, check.

I love the predictable nature of these movies. I don’t even mind the fact that the actress occasionally lost her American accent. Or that the teenage boy had a really creepy/pervy look several times throughout the movie. It was exactly what I was looking for and I hope I’m able to find more.

Oddly enough, or maybe not, it’s really very similar to A Christmas Prince which I watched earlier. Honestly, it might end up making my yearly rotation, I don’t know why I liked it just a little bit more than A Christmas Prince, even though Rose McIver was really great in that version.

4/5
