Ranking My Favourite Plot Holes In Vanessa Hudgens’ Christmas Romcom Masterpiece The Princess Switch

I love this glorious mess of a movie.

The cheesy Christmas romcom season is well and truly upon us and Netflix’s most recent release, The Princess Switch, does not disappoint. It’s every bit as unapologetically bad as we hoped and it’s extremely enjoyable to watch.

However they got Vanessa Hudgens to star in this Parent Trap/Cinderella extravaganza (?$$$?) it was all worth it so that we could sit around and lovingly roast all 100 minutes of this film.

So now, to celebrate our newfound love for what will forever be known as ‘That Vanessa Hudgens Christmas movie’, it is time to rank the many, many plot holes that stole my heart and made The Princess Switch a certified masterpiece. Here we go.

*Spoilers ahead, obviously*

#17. Stacy is a sh*t friend.

Why has Kevin been friends with Stacy for so long when she’s clearly not a very good friend to him? When Margaret asks about Kevin, Stacy literally rolls her eyes and says, “Kevin is like a puppy, if you’re nice to him, he’ll follow you anywhere.”

I mean WOW Stacy be careful you’re letting your sociopathic personality show.

Plus did you see the look of surprise on Kev’s face when Margaret-pretending-to-be-Stacy acknowledged he existed to that reporter? Seems like Stacy doesn’t make a habit of sharing the credit for their work. Seems like Stacy kinda sucks.

#16. Who is this old guy?

There is no magic in this movie so how does this random fairy-godfather-type character fit in? Is he stalking them? Should we be worried?

#15. How is this kid so smart?

Olivia figures out that Stacy switched places with a Duchess who just happens to look identical to her just from some burnt toast and a single caller ID. I mean HELLO child genius.

#14. Why not just tell Kevin?

Honestly if the kid can know, what’s the harm in telling Kevin too? Save him the trauma of believing that his long-time friend has suddenly developed feelings for him. #SaveKevin.

#13. Is Vanessa Hudgens not getting cold???

Real talk it is snowing girl??

#12. The Duchess’s wardrobe is hella spicy.

I’ve seen enough tabloid stories about Meghan Markle to know that someone in Margaret’s position probably wouldn’t dress in these racy outfits. But damn they are a huge mood. You do you Margaret.

#11. Why not just tell someone that the blender has a broken wire?

Literally they would just find you a blender that works. Boom. No lumpy Raspberry drama. Getch’ya head in the game Stacy.

#10. Did they even really need to switch places?

If someone is walking around looking identical to Margaret and not getting hassled, then surely Margaret can just chuck on some plain clothes and have a wander? No?

Willing to let this one go because Margaret had a busy schedule and also I love switching places storylines.

#9. Both of them falling in “love” within 48 hours.

Zero chill!!!

#8. Is anyone really that impressed with those mediocre music skills?

When Edward and Stacy play that 8-year-old level piano piece, everyone acts like they just performed Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony. Did they hear the same sh*t we did? 

#7. Stacy not being attracted to Kevin.

Margaret: “Have you ever seen Kevin with his shirt off?”

Stacy: “Ew Kevin? No!”

Yea OK Stacy.

#6. The twin thing.

The whole distantly-related-but-somehow-identical trope will never get old. It is the greatest gift special effects has ever blessed us with.

#5. When Margaret cries after watching A Christmas Prince.

I actually respect Netflix for putting last year’s cheesy Christmas romcom of the year within this year’s cheesy Christmas romcom of the year, and then having Vanessa Hudgens brought to tears by their own movie. They are trolling and it’s great.

#4. Why is Margaret being so messy?

The fact that Margaret could have told Prince Edward what was going down while they were sitting on the bench but instead makes it all unfold on live broadcast at the baking competition is iconic.

I’m actually not sure this is a plot hole. I think Margaret low key just lives for the drama.

#3. Vanessa Hudgens doing a British accent.

Talented. Brilliant. Incredible. Amazing. Show stopping. Spectacular.

#2. Kevin being shirtless…

Princess Switch

…And that not leading to sex? 

#1. Prince Edward’s haircut.

There is a bizarre distance between Prince Edwards ears and Prince Edwards hair.

It brings me immense joy. That is all.

The Sequel To Netflix’s Christmas Prince Looks Like The Gloriously Terrible Meghan Markle Biopic We All Need

Except there are no stakes and nothing really makes sense.

There are a lot of corny Christmas romcoms out there, but last year, Netflix’s A Christmas Prince really took the cake for bringing non-sensical extra-ness to a whole new level. It stole our hearts and our time as so many of us shamelessly got around the repeat viewings of the belovedly bad Christmas special.

And it looks like the sequel, A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding, is going to be just as corny and extra, so buckle up because Christmas is coming early.

Netflix just dropped the trailer for the Christmas Prince sequel and it’s most definitely riding that royal wedding hype wave. It’s actually like a very low-budget, slightly fictionalised Meghan Markle biopic, and we are absolutely here for it.

Somehow the only stakes in the film seem to be whether or not Amber Moore (Rose McIver) will delete her blog to conform to the royal decree.

Meghan Markle shut down her lifestyle blog, The Tig, but will Amber shut down her dear diary blog?

I know what you’re thinking – ‘Not the blog! Anything but the blog!!!!’ But yes, that and a bad wedding dress appears to be the only obstacles in this film and the trailer pretty much sums up the plot from start to finish.

But if you think we won’t be getting around A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding immediately when it comes out on Netflix, then you would be very mistaken.

November 30, Netflix, see you there.

Netflix’s Surprise Christmas Episode Of The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Sounds Unseasonably Spooky

It’s always Halloween in Greendale.

It hasn’t been long since Chilling Adventures of Sabrina came into our lives and made us fall in love with all things dark and witchy. It was the greatest Halloween gift we could have hoped for.

Well now Netflix is playing Santa and dropping a Christmas special episode of Sabrina into our stockings nice and early this year. Come December 14, we’ll be able tune in to the surprise bonus episode titled, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale.

Judging by the synopsis, this episode of Sabrina is going to be like the beautiful love child of Halloween and Christmas, because things are always spooky in the town of Greendale.

“The Church of Night, like all covens, celebrates the Winter Solstice – the longest night of the year – when families gather around the Yule Fire to sing pagan carols and tell ghost stories. But the holidays are also a time for guests and visitors – both welcome and unwelcome – you never know what might come down the chimney…”

You can catch a few glimpses of the Sabrina episode in Netflix’s Christmas content promotional video.

The Christmas special should help to tide us over until the next season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which thankfully is already being filmed. It truly is a merry Christmas when it’s full of ace holiday content, so thank the yule tides and be merry.
