Storyline

Jules Daly is struggling to raise her orphaned niece and nephew (Maggie and Milo) alone, but it isn't easy after getting downsized out of her antique sales job while Milo rebels against the death of his parents through petty theft. With things looking bleak for Christmas, an English butler named Paisley arrives with an invitation for all to come see the kids' emotionally distant grandfather who lives in Castlebury Hall, somewhere near Liechtenstein. With nothing to hold them back, they go, but the grandfather - Edward, Duke of Castlebury - is rather cold over their visit to his castle. So is his other surviving son, Ashton, Prince of Castlebury. Before long, they're all having a good time and looking forward to hosting a Christmas Eve ball, but Jules overhears a conversation from which she draws a wrong conclusion. Written by statmanjeff

Goofs

When Prince Ashton is playing the violin, Debussy's "Claire de Lune" is heard. The actor's fingering on the violin's fretboard and his bowing are completely out of sync with the music and with the notes. He should be using vibrato which would synchronize with the music and the actor is fingering the fretboard too quickly and touching notes which would not produce a vibrato. See more »

Quotes

Milo Huntington: What a weirdo.
Maddie Huntington: He's not a weirdo. He's just old.

A Christmas Fairy Tale - no less..
22 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When you imagined the castle of cinderlla - it may have looked like this one. When you imagined how nice Prince Charming may be - it might have been just like this one.

Its a fairy tale - are fairy tales ever meant to be realistic? Of course not!

My family did not like the movie because they believed it to be poor acting but good looking performers and a unimaginative plot.

I loved it because it was heart warming. It is not a thought provoking movie. Its lovely. That's all it is.

Merry Christmas!
