Viewers are reveling in the Netflix original movie A Christmas Prince -because it's so deliciously bad. To be fair, I haven't seen any criticism of the actors or the production values, but it appears the plot was written by an algorithm. Every plot device of a little girl's fantasy has been thrown into the mix, no matter how implausible, or how many times it's been used before.
See, it's about a ~quirky~ woman who is worse at being a journalist than Rory Gilmore, and a guy who is literally every bland, handsome, white, quasi-tortured prince with a playboy reputation and a secret heart of gold you've ever watched. There's a Christmas tree in every scene, in case you forget it's a CHRISTMAS prince, i.e. the best kind of prince, obviously. I imagine he smells of cinnamon and wrapping paper IRL. And if you love romance clichés, guess what: THIS MOVIE HAS ALL OF THEM. Every single one.
#AChristmasPrince has everything: The Prince & Me, Princess Diaries 2, Never Been Kissed, Beauty & the Beast, finding out you're adopted /1— Harmony Barker (@HarmonyNBee) November 30, 2017
Let me guess one of them: the lead is a plain woman until she gets to know the prince. Then he is astonished to see how beautiful she is dressed up for the ball, because she's now wearing a dress and makeup. And they live happily ever after. A true Cinderella story.
