      Hilife Health Care r I do not understand. This movies moved along nicely, was entertaining, had all the elements of entertaining and yet some critics panned it. Is it their job to simply knock every movie they review? Well then forget the critics this movie was very entertaining to a common person, looking for two hours of great entertainment. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review andrea e Honestly one of the worst movies ever. Instead of making me feel good like one of these movies should, I was irritated to the point of rooting against the obnoxious liar female lead. And the acting borders on criminal. Is there NO ONE in Hollywood from NY? I kind of think there is, so why the horrible, phony New Yawk accents? But you can't blame the actors for the dialogue so cliched it literally sounded like an SNL skit satirizing bad movie dialogue. When the prince/king comes to propose to Amber at the end, even she says "but we barely know each other" yet (spoiler!) ten seconds later, she says Yes! Oy vey. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member There is a secession crisis in the kingdom, and you are falling in love with the illegitimate heir? There is an economic crisis in the kingdom, and you are having a wedding with the formerly illegitimate heir? There is a treaty that, if not signed, could bring a devastating conflict to the continent, and you are having a baby? How the fuck hasn't this nation fallen apart yet? Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Classic Christmas cheese, wonderful Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review lois d This is a great movie - well acted, interesting story, and empowering for women. This is not your usual puff piece where a sappy woman just falls for the handsome guy, but an interesting story (and the rest of the movies as well) with a plot, great scenery, smart women, and believable. Watch them all! Don't be dissuaded by the negative reviews by the guys who can't believe a woman can be smart and accomplished. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Decent watch, probably won't watch again, but can recommend. While it isn't anything truly special, it's a decent version of a "journalist in disguise falls in love" trope. Though the object of affection being a prince allows for resources that almost anyone wouldn't turn down. There certainly is a lot of production put into the movie to maintain the grand perception of royals, but the best part of the movie is the heart felt Christmas vibe of it. Unfortunately, this is mostly achieved through the secondary characters and them influencing the royal family. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Dana Schwartz Entertainment Weekly By those metrics, A Christmas Prince is an instant classic. It's a Netflix original movie, but it feels like a violation of nature that it somehow isn't from Lifetime or the Hallmark Channel. Dec 27, 2017 Full Review Alberto Carlos Espinof The performances are decent, the script has a good pace even when introducing its twists, it has a correct realization. [Full Review in Spanish] Aug 5, 2019 Full Review Ruth Maramis FlixChatter Film Blog I'd be willing to forgive a lot of things in this movie if at least the romance is swoon-worthy. Unfortunately, I think it's the biggest fail here as there's simply zero chemistry between the two leads. Rated: 2.5/5 Mar 1, 2019 Full Review Josh Oswald Pittsburgh City Paper If you're into decadent, empty-calorie streaming, Netflix has whipped up quite the seasonal soufflé. Dec 18, 2018 Full Review Funmi Sunmonu Add This To Your List If there's a night where you can't sleep and you're suffering from insomnia, through this on! It's sweet. Aug 28, 2018 Full Review Estelle Tang Cosmopolitan Watching this film, though, felt a little like having déjà vu. As each scene proceeded, I thought, I think I know what's going to happen. And I did! Picked it every time. Mar 8, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
