The Knight Before Christmas – A perfect Sleeping Pill Before Christmas!

The Knight Before Christmas is the name on one of the many original Netflix productions coming at us before Christmas in 2019. I didn’t have high expectations before it all started, but somehow the movie managed to perform even worse than I expected!

I don’t care if a movie has a bad story as long as it sometimes manages to make me interested. I didn’t like Holiday in the Wild, but still, the animals were nice, and thus, I could quite easily watch the movie without getting too bored. But, The Knight Before Christmas didn’t manage to make me interested in any way. It was simply boring from the very first moment and it never managed to turn into an interesting movie.

Kristin Davis and Rob Lowe in Holiday in the Wild might be a stronger combo than Vanessa Hudgens and Josh Whitehouse in The Knight Before Christmas. I must admit, Vanessa Hudgens has fallen into the really bad B-category movies after her success with High School Musical. But, in her Netflix original movie last year named The Princess Switch, I actually had a good time (even though it was a movie with a low potential as well). So, this could have turned into a movie worth watching. However, it didn’t!

A great alternative to sleeping pills

When I started to watch The Knight Before Christmas, I had energy and looked forward to streaming it. But, it didn’t take many minutes before my eyes felt tempted to make it dark. I remained strong for 50 minutes, but then I simply fell asleep. However, my surroundings didn’t allow me to sleep for a long time, so I returned to the story after a few minutes. But, considering that things didn’t improve, I went back into sleeping mode again. Luckily, I woke up to see the happy ending, but for me, it was happy because it meant that I could brush my teeth and go to bed!

Vanessa Hudgens is cute in her role, but it doesn’t help this movie a second.

Where to watch The Knight Before Christmas?

You can watch the movie on Netflix in Canada, on Netflix in the United States, and on any other Netflix region worldwide. It is a Netflix original movie, meaning that it can be streamed on Netflix everywhere. It also means that you CANNOT stream it anywhere else. You will never find this movie on Amazon Prime, on HBO Now, or on Hulu. And I almost forget, you cannot find it on Disney+ either!

But, is it worth wasting your time on this movie? I would say no. But, if you are desperate for something that is supposed to be a romantic Christmas movie, this might be it. There are 100 times better Christmas movies on Netflix, so click the link to find out more about those.

Let me warn you… the movie only has a 5,5/10 score on IMDb, and that is terrible considering that this portal normally give grades about 6 to all movies.

The Princess Switch review

The Princess Switch is the name of the brand new Netflix original movie. It was released on Netflix worldwide in November 2018, just in time for the Christmas celebration in 2018. But, is The Princess Switch worth watching?

The Princess Switch review
Vanessa Hudgens in The Princess Switch on Netflix

As you probably know already, most Christmas movies are incredibly predictable and they often run on a very low budget. The companies creating the Christmas movies know that we will watch them no matter what, and thus they do not have excellence and high quality as the standard anymore. But, is The Princess Switch just another terrible Christmas movie? Yesterday I published an article about a very boring and predictable Netflix original Chrismas movie named The Holiday Calendar, but what’s up with The Princess Switch?

The Christmas Switch review

Vanessa Hudgens, whom you might remember from the High School Musical movies, is playing the role as Stacy, a baker from Chicago in the movie. She is invited to take part in the annual Christmas baking competition in Belgravia, hosted by the royal family. After arrival, she visits the location of the competition and bumps into another person looking completely like her. The person is no other than Lady Margaret, the future to be the wife of Prince Edward of Belgravia. However, Lady Margaret isn’t that enthusiastic about the marriage and wants to live a different life. They decide to change roles for two days, something that is supposed to be easy and without any complications at all.

We all know that things will get complicated, and the movie is predictable in that way. It is also easy to tell who will fall in love with whom, but that is okay because there are some questions left unanswered that make it interesting to watch the movie all the way to the end.

Vanessa Hudgens does a great job

In the role of Stacy from Chicago and Lady Margaret, Vanessa Hudgens is doing a great job. Her British accent is beautiful to listen to, and she manages to keep the interest up for both her characters throughout the film.

I was surprised by the movie because I expected it to be much worse. In fact, I had a fairly good time watching it, and I even had to laugh a couple of times. That should be considered a big bonus!

The Princess Switch review summary

This is a very nice movie to watch for families, couples, and friends who want to watch an enjoyable Christmas movie containing a romantic story and some good jokes. It will never become a Christmas classic, but it is way better than many movies I have seen in the cinema this year that almost made me fall asleep!
