Goofs

When Sir Cole is first transported to modern day, a group of young women circle him in order to take a selfie. When the selfie is viewed on the phone, the girls are in a different order. When the view returns to the group, they are still in the original arrangement, not the one seen on the phone. See more »

Quotes

Santa Claus: Hey, buddy. Can you maybe, uh, stop calling my wife an "Old Crone?" You look a little lost.
Sir Cole: Indeed. I fear I'm no closer to becoming a true knight than I was before the crone sent me here.
Santa Claus: Crone?
Sir Cole: A wise woman that presents herself in various disguises to test the hearts of knights.
Santa Claus: You must be one of those method actors. You really get into your roles, huh?
Sir Cole: A knight is always pure of heart. Alas, I fear I'm no close to achieving my quest than I was the moment I got here.

Disappointed
24 November 2019 | by boselfSee all my reviews

I adore rom-com Christmas movies. I have watched her previous and amazing Netflix movie 'The princess switch' multiple times and love this actress. All the actors were really sweet and did their parts, but it felt mechanical. I also was no fan of the plot and the lack of depth in dealing with going from one era to the next. That must be seriously confusing, but there was no room in the story for any depth in to dealing with this matter.

The movie felt superficial, robotical and incredibly staged. Even the special hair and make up was not really professionally done. I don't want to rant, but was really disappointed after watching it.
