17 reactions to Netflix's The Princess Switch that prove it's 2018's best Christmas film.

In the spirit of Christmas, Netflix has gifted us with the corniest, Christmas rom-com in the form of a one hour and 41 minute cinematic masterpiece known as The Princess Switch.

The initial reviews are in, and yes, you simply must watch it.

Think of the film as a mix between The Parent Trap and The Princess and the Pauper. in which Vanessa Hudgens plays both Stacy – a Chicago-based bakery owner – and Margaret, the Duchess of Montenaro. They fortuitously meet in the fictitious, vaguely European country of Belgravia, switch lives, and promptly fall in love with men they certainly aren’t meant to.

There’s a ton of Christmas baking, festive decorations, ball gowns and royals, and as one very astute Twitter user noted, “I like to think it’s EXACTLY what might happen if I were to meet Kate Middleton at a terribly-run European baking festival.”

Watch the trailer for Netlix’s The Princess Switch right now, and get prepared to gush.

If it all sounds immaculately corny and ridiculous cheesy, that’s because it is. The Princess Switch promises to violently shoehorn the festive joy into your veins and social media is loving it.

Here’s what they had to say.
