1:25Loving this realtime movie business. Each year it’s just… what I did in Aldovia this year.
3:12Penglia is a rubbish name for a country. Sorry Penglians.
5:25“Classical music makes everyone smarter.” It does??
8:39They’re arguing about riding a subway in a country that still uses horses to get around.
9:40THERE’S A MAP! Aldovia is massive!! And has totally swamped a load of real life countries. I’d be fuming.
11:35If they have a queen, wtf is the problem?
15:23The massive acorn! So confused.
22:07“Such a shame there’s no guests…” couldn’t afford the extras.
25:49What is this Christmas board game? I want to play!
29:49Not sure anyone should be going for walks, they should be on lockdown.
36:16“It’s a long story,” she says. No, no. It just feels long.
45:24Loving the Christmas tree stuffed full of bears.
50:28Mr C’s theory: Lin has stolen it with Simon in order to make sure the families spend time together so both the women can sign the treaty and it was a good guy plan all along.
55:17I must say I’m on board with the sitting down style of ice skating.
57:40Oh my god, she’s nine months pregnant and doing ice skating and archery and now she’s fainted?? Shocker.
1:03:58She was a world class hacker last time, now she’s a little scaredy cat tell-tale brat. Kids, eh?
1:10:09Is she doing the Poirot explanation scene whilst in labour?
1:13:09The best bit about this film is how important Simon and Melissa have been and I have literally have no idea who they are.
1:15:41That’s the kind of movie labour I can get on board with. “It’s time.” Exterior shot. Baby cries.


The only thing I can say about this film, really, is to leave a note to myself: DO NOT WATCH THE FOURTH INSTALLMENT.

This is such a terrible movie. Not even the normal “fun but stupid” holiday adventure. It’s badly written with terrible dialogue and goofy acting, and it really, genuinely feels like it was made by young movie students.

And, once again, we came up with a story twist that was far better than the actual plot.

Rating: 1 / 5
