The Princess Switch
Stacy who likes to plan EVERYTHING and owns a bakery gets the opportunity to compete in a baking competition. Together with Kevin and his daughter, they go to Belgravia. During the rehearsals, Stacy meets Lady Margaret who looks a lot like her. Even better: they look identical. They decide to switch places because Lady Margaret wants to know how it is to live a normal life.
I was really looking forward to watching this movie. I am a big fan of Vanessa Hudgens since ‘High school musical’ And I was super happy to hear that she now was going to play in a Netflix movie. And not just one role, but two! Besides that, when I was younger I was a big fan of ‘the parent trap’ movie with Lindsay Lohan too. And this looked like an adult version of it.
There made a lot of mistakes in this movie. For example, at the beginning of the movie, they were driving a car, but there was still snow on the windows. Nobody can drive like that. It is dangerous. And some parts looked fake too. In those moments you could really tell that they used green screens for it and the background is fake. I didn’t like that. It also reminds me of those Hallmark movies.
And that part where two people who were sabotaging their kitchen aid at night was weird too. Because you can never enter a studio that easily. There is always security. And it doesn’t matter if you are one of the bakers.
Anyways, a lot of mistakes in this movie. And that was too bad because I can really get annoyed by that. But if you can ignore those mistakes, you will like this movie. It was definitely romantic. And I think it is amazing how Vanessa, who plays two roles in this movie, can have amazing chemistry with the two guys. If Vanessa plays Stacy, there is chemistry between her and Edward, but not with Kevin. When Vanessa is Lady Margaret, there is definitely chemistry between her and Kevin but not with Edward. So yes, Vanessa Hudgens is a great actress.
Overall, it is an okay Christmas movie with a lot of romance. Yes, you have to ignore those mistakes. So if you are not good with that, don’t watch this. If you don’t mind that they made a couple of mistakes, go and watch it. Especially if you also like Hallmark movies.
