A Christmas Prince is as Advertised
I had Christmas cards to address and needed something Christmas-y while I was doing it,* and so I turned on Alex Zamm’s A Christmas Prince. It wasn’t terrible. I found that Theo Devaney (Simon) was more interesting than the Christmas Prince himself, so I wasn’t really rooting for the right person, but overall, I didn’t hate it.**
The verdict: Skip
Cost: Netflix monthly fee ($8.99)
Where watched: at home (also, I had to pay more attention to this than It’s a Wonderful Life and thus kept making errors in addressing the Christmas cards.)
Consider watching instead:
- It’s a Wonderful Life
- The Holiday
- Sleepless in Seattle
*I don’t own a copy of It’s a Wonderful Life, which is my go-to for this sort of thing
**I’ve really enjoyed Rose McIver in iZombie, and was surprised to see her coming off as so vapid in this film.
- Did you like this film? If yes, what worked for you?
- Do you think this movie deserves to have two sequels?
Favorite IMDB trivia items:
The movie was filmed on the Peles Castle, a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian Mountains, situated in Sinaia, in Romania.
(I question your syntax there, IMDB trivia contributor, but I was wondering where that castle was.)
