Kevin and Margaret are still together. To sum things up: nothing makes sense, the snow is very clearly fake, the forced British accents are brutal, and the plot includes. Stacy agrees to compete and leaves for Belgravia, along with Kevin and Olivia. The point is, these two have conflicting personalities so they decide to switch places for two days. It's mediocre, but it leans more towards the positive definition of that term. From questionable equestrian skills and the true meaning of charity to slipping accents and snowball fights, this is an adventure that no holiday romantic should miss.
So imagine my cynical cringe when two characters in The Princess Switch decide to cozy up for a little Netflix and chill. Start mixing the hot cocoa, because we've got a feeling the rest of the world is going to be curling up next to the fire this year to watch Hudgens stumble her way through this switcharoo holiday flick. The snow was white as, well, snow and the carriage rides romantic as can be. The only thing properly executed here is the creative way in which the two characters have personalities conflicting their social status; Margaret is aching for a normal and spontaneous life, while Stacy is well-organized. This is the question we all ask when the next big movie comes out. Then there's a secret handshake a device lifted directly from The Parent Trap , which is supposed to give the game away. This is my life now.
But a jarring run-in with her ex propels her to shake things up, so she grabs Kevin and Olivia and heads for competition headquarters in Belgravia. The two rush to the competition to resolve matters. You can easily relate to either Stacy or Margaret in a way. She doesn't care that she has to wear T-shirts, affect an American accent, or hang out with complete strangers Kevin and Olivia. They turn on A Christmas Prince , a choice that made me laugh out loud.
She is Stacy De Novo, a baker from Chicago and also Lady Margaret, the Duchess of. The two fall in love, which is exactly what happens between Margaret and Kevin as she embraces commoner living. First things first, The Princess Switch is a delight. And American Vanessa acts like he just wrote her a personalized poem. Enclosed with the invitation is a photo of a hot prince.
However, when the two develop real feelings for each other, Stacy wonders if she has put herself in a heartbreaking situation. Once arrived in Belgravia, the trio goes sightseeing and encounters a Christmas stocking seller who looks very similar to the kindly man Stacy met back in Chicago. There was a character in this film that just kept appearing at the right moment and it was never explained. Stacy and Margaret quickly teach each other about their lives, behaviours and quirks to minimise suspicion and part ways. Let's start with the fictional European countries of Montanaro is this supposed to be Montenegro? Meanwhile, Prince Edward — who was supposed to be away on business for the two days of the switch — changes his plans and wants to spend time with his fiancée, sending Stacy into a panic. Nobody seemed like a character but a real human being. Stacy tries to avoid the medal presentation, and Kevin — unaware of the switch — insists that she accepts.
What kind of Jonas Brother promise ring B. I can also confidently say I have never seen Europe look more American than it does in The Princess Switch. Immediately upon arriving at the charity ball, Vanessa grills the King and Queen about the details of the homeless shelter this charity is supposedly for. Aka Lady Margaret Delacourt, one half of the couple getting married during the aforementioned royal wedding. It is a film supposedly about the magic of Christmas and love and what-not, but the only representation of the best time of the year is of extravagant, cliche decorations. Why do I get the feeling that in the entire fictional 3 years Vanessa and Paul dated, she never got to meet his parents? I had no issues with the pacing at all in this film.
Aid: What does it say? So, she asks Stacy if they can switch places. However, back to this baking contest. At the very least there is a lot to laugh at if not with. Seriously, is like Mike Rohl's 'The Princess Switch' is like the annoying guy who sings Christmas Carols in November. She seems weirdly invested in this plan, though. A film within a film, I know, how meta.
Is the acting the best? Is slut-shaming really in the Christmas spirit? Not too long of time passes before Prince Edward and Stacy start to have a real connection. But the moments where Stacy actually teaches Margaret the handshake and the moment in which Margaret is actually found out are missing, leaving the viewer to fill in the blanks. Stacy, a type-a planner with a penchant for schedules, takes a spontaneous trip to the charming land of Belgravia at the encouragement of her sous chef and best friend, Kevin. The two women agree to switch places. Back at the palace, the Prince apologizes to Vanessa for being an ass. Don't worry about the fact that those two very different locations look strikingly similar! Its other similarly simplistic message is that people spark romantically to different qualities and characteristics.
