5 reasons why Netflix’s The Princess Switch is a mindlessly fun movie to watch

If you are subscribed to Netflix, then you might already know that The Princess Switch was released last Nov 16.

Directed by Mike Rohl, it is a Christmas romantic comedy starring Vanessa Hudgens, Sam Palladio and Nick Sagar.

Hudgens plays both Stacy DeNovo, a Chicago baker and Lady Margaret Delacourt the Duchess of Montenaro. Margaret was also the future bride of Edward, the crown prince of fictional Kingdom of Belgravia.

Stacy and Margaret decide to switch places for a couple of days as the latter was hoping to live a normal non-duchess life before her arranged marriage to Edward.

With a predictable storyline, the movie opened to mixed reviews with a handful of bloopers here and there.

Nonetheless here at KajoMag, we have five reasons The Princess Switch is a mindless fun movie for you to watch this Christmas.

1.Watch it for Vanessa Hudgens’ cringey British accent

Hudgens plays both Stacy DeNovo (left) and Lady Margaret Delacourt (right).

Hudgens playing the American Stacy DeNovo attempting to carry a British accent is funny to watch. However, Hudgens playing Lady Margaret Delacourt with what she means to be a native British accent was cringey. For this, you really have to watch The Princess Switch to experience the difference.

2.It features the world’s hottest sous chef

Nick Sagar playing Kevin Richards (Stacy’s best friend and sous chef) was one of, or maybe the best thing in the movie.

All I can say is there’s a scene featuring a shirtless Kevin and it was the only man-candy moment you need from a movie this Christmas.

Yes, everything is fine. Credits: Screenshot from Netflix trailer.

3.A life-swapping movie is always fun to watch

17 again, The Parents’ Trap, Freaky Friday, 13 Going 30; a life-swapping movie is always fun to watch.
Furthermore, it is always interesting to watch any actor acting two different characters in one movie.

4.The Duchess’s closet is worth killing for

Obviously, Lady Margaret the duchess has a way better wardrobe than Stacy the baker. And the Duchess’ closet is on top of my Christmas wish list this year. From the heels Stacy wore during her visit to the orphanage and her maroon ball gown, every fashion item was definitely to die for.

5.A good movie to watch mindlessly while sipping on a drink this Christmas

Putting aside the nonsensical idea of learning to be somebody else in just few hours, The Princess Switch was actually a fun movie to watch. Hudgens, should consider acting in more rom-coms as she was hilarious in the movie.

If you are watching The Princess Switch this Christmas, grab a glass of wine, beer, brandy, whiskey or eggnog and expect a fairly tale movie with a fairly tale ending.
