Please Watch A Christmas Prince, Netflix's Unintentionally Hilarious Holiday Romance

When it comes to watching cheesy romance movies, I like to think my tolerance is fairly high. Sure, I cherish Never Been Kissed and Bridget Jones's Diary, but I also have a soft spot for . . . Beauty and the Briefcase. And From Prada to Nada. Oh, and Pizza My Heart (Yes, Pizza My Heart). There's something comforting about sinking into the couch and getting wrapped up in the pure fluff of these movies' romantic entanglements, and I won't apologize for it. Some people meditate or go for a run to let off steam; I like to watch B-list actors get themselves into relationship problems that would be solved in real life with a single text message. That's why, upon spotting Netflix's new original holiday movie, A Christmas Prince - Note: not to be confused with My Christmas Prince or A Princess For Christmas - I was ready to shut off my

Fyi: Outlander's Sam Heughan Once Played a Prince in a Gloriously Cheesy Holiday Movie

While we all know and love Sam Heughan's immensely talented work in Outlander, did you know that the smoldering Jamie Fraser isn't actually his best role? No, that honor goes to his tireless dedication to playing the great Ashton, Prince of Castlebury. "Who is the great Ashton, Prince of Castlebury?" you might be wondering. "Is there some high-brow royal biopic I missed? Did he guest star on The Crown?" Well, long before he was making us weak in the knees on Outlander, Heughan popped up in Hallmark's gloriously cheesy holiday romance A Princess For Christmas (not to be confused with Netflix's A Christmas Prince or My Christmas Prince, of course). The 2011 film follows a down-on-her-luck antiques dealer named Jules (Katie McGrath) and her young niece and nephew. They travel to the whimsical European country of Castlebury (stay with me) to visit their estranged grandfather. It turns out the man

Christmas Comes Even Earlier This Year to the Smallscreen

It’s not your imagination: Christmas comes earlier every year, and on TV at least, it stays longer.

Programmers are leveraging the marketing platform of the holidays like never before. Cable networks such as ABC Family, Hallmark Channel and Lifetime practically give themselves over to holiday-themed movies during the months of November and December, after revving up with Halloween fare just weeks before.

Home for the Holidays,” “Help for the Holidays,” “Hitched for the Holidays,” “A Princess for Christmas,” “A Boyfriend for Christmas,” et al. — the stream of hokey telepic titles is endless, it seems, at this time of year.

NBC is looking to capitalize on the feel-good festive environment with its live broadcast of “The Sound of Music,” toplined by Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer, on Dec. 5. CBS has its share of holiday chestnuts that are perennial faves — and is perhaps looking to add to that this year with the Dec.

"A Princess for Christmas" Is One Gift You'll Hope You Never Get

Feel-good family-friendly Christmas movies are a dime a dozen, and so are films about independent young women unexpectedly becoming royalty through a “spontaneous” romance that proves she’s in love and not seeking riches and titles. A Princess for Christmas, directed by Michael Damian, blends these two genres together and comes out with a mangled, simplistic story filled with wooden acting, stilted writing, and a chain of events that make little sense save for the fact that they’re prerequisites for any basic “average girl becomes a princess” kind of film. It’s unfortunate that the basic structure and elements are so horribly executed because there are enough strong cast members, like Merlin’s Katie McGrath, Charlotte Salt, and Roger Moore, that a more talented director could have made a memorable holiday distraction.
