Hello, Movie Buffs!
     Aspiring New York journalist, Amber (Rose Mclver) gets her shot when she is sent abroad to get the scoop on Aldovia’s dashing soon-to-be king, Prince Richard (Ben Lamb). However, when things don’t go as planned and she decides sneaks into the palace, she gets mistaken for being the new tutor for Prince Richard’s younger sister Emily. As she gets entangled in royal intrigue and finds love, will she be able to keep up her lie? Or will the pressure become too much to handle? 
     Directed by Alex Zamm (Christmas in Evergreen) and written by Karen Schaler (A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby) and Nathan Atkins (A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby), Netflix’s A Christmas Prince (2017) is an entertaining Christmas rom-com that is sure to leave you smiling at the end. The story is a bit predictable and slightly cliche but there were some elements and twists that were completely unexpected. The scenery was beautiful, the detail was handled with care, and the costumes were great. 
     The characters are great. Rose McIver (iZombie) has never disappointed me with her performances and here she gives a charming performance that is not too over the top funny. Ben Lamb (The Warrior Queen of Jhansi, Knightfall) is great as the conflicted and yet charming King/Prince Richard. Honor Kneafsey (Crooked House) is also great as the spunky and determined Princess Emily. The romantic chemistry between McIver and Lamb is on point, while the friendly chemistry between McIver and Kneafsey is cute. The rest of the cast - Tom Knight, Sarah Douglas, Daniel Fathers, Alice Krige and Tahirah Sharif - are nice in their respective performances.

     Overall, A Christmas Prince (2017) is an entertaining and heartfelt film that is sure to warm your heart this holiday season. The story is predictable but that is expected when it stays within the constraints of a Netflix Christmas film nor does this mean that it is any less enjoyable. The cast performances are great and the chemistry between the characters works well. If you enjoyed other royal-themed Christmas films like A Princess for Christmas (2011) or A Princess Switch (2018) then I highly recommend that you check out this film and is subsequent sequels.

Final Vote --- 6.7 of 10 stars
