39:56 “That sounded like a compliment.” “It was more an insult to him.”
48:20 He has a very impressive feather duster.
56:06 Just under an hour before Christmas actually makes an appearance.
1:01:42 AHHH Princess Switch crossover!!
1:11:34 They have a lot of Christmas decorations… he must have had to plant a lot of stuff.
1:22:11 Snowball in the face isn’t the romantic apology gesture he was hoping for.

Thoughts

Mildy better than the third installment of The Princess Switch, but probably not a great film. It was entertaining and cosy, the argument at the end felt a bit over-the-top and really just there to give the conflict that needs to be resolved for a happy ending. The characters were cute though and the village adorable, and I liked that he wasn’t your traditional heroic lead. A medium level entry in the Netflix Christmas Universe.
