2:54Aldovia this time. Gonna need a Netflix Christmas Universe atlas.
6:30Always judge a country on the state of their airport. Genovia sucked. Aldovia much better.
10:11I feel like she’s breaking and entering or at the very least trespassing. Maybe spying? Not a good start to your career.
13:26More of a plié than a curtsey.
13:54“Who are you and what are you doing in my palace?”
22:03Spying again! Doesn’t Aldovia have an MI5?
23:43“Because I don’t know how to curtsey and I break everything?”
30:58Hold 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.
43:14No one has ever said ‘toboggan’ with such disdain before.
47:39Loving that her first instinct upon seeing a scary wolf is to just sit down.
56:10I 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.
1:04:29Liking the Converse under the posh gown.
1:08:58If the guy wants to be King in his place, it’s not a very kingly way to behave.
1:18:44Very unpopular king. Actual booing.
1:25:52What’s up with the snowball throwing? Is that some kind of greeting in New York?
1:27:58Come on King Richard, you don’t know ANYTHING about her because she lied to you the whole time.

Conclusions

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.
