|2:54||Aldovia this time. Gonna need a Netflix Christmas Universe atlas.|
|6:30||Always judge a country on the state of their airport. Genovia sucked. Aldovia much better.|
|10:11||I feel like she’s breaking and entering or at the very least trespassing. Maybe spying? Not a good start to your career.|
|13:26||More of a plié than a curtsey.|
|13:54||“Who are you and what are you doing in my palace?”|
|22:03||Spying again! Doesn’t Aldovia have an MI5?|
|23:43||“Because I don’t know how to curtsey and I break everything?”|
|30:58||Hold the phone. Firstly, she was typing in a fake Pages document because the word count was zero. Then it magically turned into a Word document. Aldovia is weird.|
|43:14||No one has ever said ‘toboggan’ with such disdain before.|
|47:39||Loving that her first instinct upon seeing a scary wolf is to just sit down.|
|56:10||I can’t see any of this ending well. I certainly would never forgive her for lying and snooping and knowing.|
|57:34||“Men too, sometimes.” Great comeback.|
|1:04:29||Liking the Converse under the posh gown.|
|1:08:58||If the guy wants to be King in his place, it’s not a very kingly way to behave.|
|1:18:44||Very unpopular king. Actual booing.|
|1:25:52||What’s up with the snowball throwing? Is that some kind of greeting in New York?|
|1:27:58||Come on King Richard, you don’t know ANYTHING about her because she lied to you the whole time.|
Was absolutely expecting this to be one of the rubbish but brilliant Christmas movies and that’s exactly what it was. The story was far-fetched, but kinda fun, and it was a laugh to guess the twists and turns and how the story might unfold (we also managed to write a better twist ourselves as we went along, but hey, simpler is probably better).
Good characters, cheesy story, but a nice message, and a very Christmassy feel. Very good.
