Spirit of Christmas
Verified purchase
rAs always, holiday movies are predictable for the most part. But owning more than 60 plus movies, I would like to comment that it is not always the scripet, but the look of Christmas and the Holiday season itself that most want to see. I have watched hundreds of movies that were great, very good, good and the ones that I was not too sure how they made it as a holiday movie at all, but seeing the decorated trees, ornaments,
lighting, tinsel, songs and all that goes with Christmas makes the better ones greater. There are those that do not deserve a one star. But given that, let's lift up the spirit of Chrisrmas with the great movies and let lesser of them not spoil the mode. Predictable or not, corney or not, the majority of these movies are clean with no vulgar language, no nudity, simple truths and family oriented and that should stand for something in a world where crime, hate, off colored language and more should give us a lift during this special time of the year that we only have one chance a year to at this time to enjoy the lights, colors, glitter, the special gift of family and friends. Merry Christmas ev

Well? Here we go! I never thought for a moment when I bought this movie, it had the wonderful Sam Heughan in it. I was not an Outlander fan at the time either. Starz kept showing and talking about Season 2 and showing it so much that I thought well what the heck and checked out if I could watch Season 1. To my surprise, I could and watched the whole first 16 episode Season. It was very hard to watch 15 and 16. I had to in order to understand the series.
This movie, A Princess For Christmas is a wonderful movie! Katie McGrath did a wonderful job playing the Aunt to a couple of children who lost their parents in a car accident at Christmas time the year before. She is the sister who lost her sister. Her brother in law happened to be a son of a Duke who had nothing to do with him because he married a commoner. Time went on, after a year the Duke wants to see is grandchildren. The grandfather being played by Roger Moore. He other son is played by Sam Heughan who carries a British accent very well. I think he is British in real life. I really don't know. This is a must see movie. I won't give away any spoilers. Let's just say it is Hallmark and it does have a great ending. This being shown on Hallmark surprised me. Hallmark isn't very good at ending movies well at all. This one, they did a great job!

Really cute sweet movie. Not TOO schmaltzy for a Christmas movie
Verified purchase
Really cute sweet movie. Not TOO schmaltzy for a Christmas movie...but if you don't like schmaltzie don't buy this one just rent it. Sam Heughan is worth the price whatever you decide to pay. O.k....going to get a tissue to wipe the drool away now. Hollywood needs to cast Sam In wide release films. I would like to see him on the big screen...and if you are a female...you will agree with me unless you are blind and deaf. :D

Cute, Cheesy and Cheerful
Verified purchase
Wasn't quite sure how I would feel about this movie. Don't get me wrong, I love Sam Heughan and Katie McGrath, but I'd never heard of this movie before. Still, I decided to give it a chance and wasn't disappointed. It's a cute little movie about family, loss and healing around the holidays. **Just a fair warning to all, while cute, this movie is SUPER CHEESY!** I don't mind a little cheese as long as the story line is up to par and the acting on point, which this is. (Plus, can you ever go wrong with a dancing Sam Heughan and the ever dashing Roger Moore?)

A Timeless Christmas Romance
Verified purchase
Are you looking for an enchanting Christmas movie and haven't seen this one yet? If you love happy endings this one's for you. The movie begins in Buffalo NY and ends in one of those small provincial realistic sounding sovereign nations nestled somewhere in Europe with a lovely heroine and a dashing prince falling in love. Jules Daly, our beautiful heroine, is struggling to raise her adorable but prone to carbohydrates niece and tough on the outside, tender on the inside nephew whose parents died unexpectedly in a car crash during Christmas the prior year. When all seems hopeless an invitation to visit the realm of their grandfather, the Duke of Castlebury, appears to be the change needed to see them through the tragedy. While Jules, Miles and Maddie acclimate to castle life, it's obvious there's a growing attraction between Jules and Ashton, her late sister's brother-in-law and heir apparent to an unnamed throne. As with all princess movies, there are obstacles, competition for the hero's heart and personal set-backs to overcome but even though some of this might be slightly predictable the acting in this one completely sells it. Katie McGrath as Jules is both beautiful and down-to-earth. Sam Heughan completely and handsomely fills the shoes of his princely role. Roger Moore, although in better shape during his 007 days is perfect as the gruff Grandfather whose heart eventually melts thanks to an adorable granddaughter and spirited grandson. The supporting cast of the castle staff round out the story with a few stand-out scenes of their own. While it may be a classic Hallmark-movie-style Christmas flick, the themes of loss and sorrow, the value of family, and love conquers all raise this one above the more common Christmas fare. It's well-worth adding to your Christmas collection (and even viewing at other times in the year!).

A pleasant Christmas Romance
Verified purchase
I've watched this one twice now, and liked it better the second time around -- always a good sign.

It stars Katie McGrath as the aunt of a pair of kids who lost their parents and now, as Christmas approaches, she is about to lose her job. It doesn't pay much anyway, but times are tough and she's out the door with few prospects.

But help is on the way: the father of the two children was the son of a Duke, who invites them all to spend the holiday at the family castle in Europe.

This is a very pleasant love story, with good acting, some lovely scenery and characters that it is very easy to like (most of them -- you don't want it to be TOO easy for them, do you?)

It does adhere to more or less the usual formula of Christmas romances but it's the details that always win me over. I liked the fact that her job was in antiques and that she could fix mechanical things and had a true love for Christmas in a place where Christmas was not very welcome. The other characters too were interesting and I find the whole business very entertaining.

Can't go wrong if you're looking for a fluffy happy ending holiday movie
Verified purchase
I wanted to watch this film to see if Sam Heughan was "all that". Bottom line: the beginning was rough -- almost like it was his first film -- but by the end it was a good start for him. This is a great movie for kids/preteens, especially around the holidays. I found it entertaining and it held my interest right through to the last frame. So, it was predictable. What happy ending film is not?

Characters were not all engaging, though. Katie McGrath was cute as could be and believable as the girl with no money. But there was little if no chemistry between her and Heughan. Roger Moore was stiff most of the way through the film. Was he chosen for the name? Did he need a paycheck? Best characters in the movie were the service staff. Loved them!

I would love to see this movie become a holiday standard along with Home Alone and all the others.

An American girl spends her Christmas at a castle in Europe with two kids!
Verified purchase
Pretty young Jules (Katie McGrath) from Buffalo has custody of her nephew & niece following the tragic death of their parents (her sister & brother-in-law), before then unexpectedly discovering that her deceased brother-in-law was actually a member of a European royal family, disowned after marrying a commoner (her sister), but now the children's grandfather, Edward Duke of Castlebury (Roger Moore), wants to meet his grandchildren, and so they're all invited to spend Christmas at his castle in Europe. Nephew Milo (Travis Turner) is an unlikeable, spoiled brat, while niece Maddie (Leilah de Meza) is an adorable little cutie. Anyway, the elderly Duke's handsome son, Ashton (Sam Heughan), has a lovely girlfriend in the Lady Arabella Marchand du Belmont (Charlotte Salt), but if this is a predictable, formulaic Hallmark video, then pretty Jules will no doubt end up together with the children's Uncle Ashton. And so yes, in the end it all comes together nicely!
