SYNOPSIS: One week before Christmas, Margaret, the gorgeous Duchess of Montenaro, switches places with Stacy, a “commoner” from Chicago, who looks exactly like her.

FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
The Princess Switch is a generic, Netflix-Christmas movie that finds itself lacking in holiday themes, but still brings that holiday spirit. While the story is unoriginal, predictable and filled with overacted performances and generic cinematography, none of this matters as its feel-good tone and cheesy story make for a heartwarming, enjoyable and relaxing time. This film is the perfect choice to put on for your kids during a snowy Sunday afternoon, but won’t do much for the older audiences.
★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ 6/10 – Consider
