In case you haven’t heard, ‘The Princess Switch’ starring Vanessa Hudgens just dropped on Netflix, making it one of the first Christmas movies to grace our screens.
Looking at the trailer, the story seems to be one of those ‘twin switch-up’ movies we’ve seen countless times before in movies such as ‘The Parent Trap’ and ‘Lizzie Mcguire’.
Judging by the early reviews, ‘The Christmas Switch’ seems to be also just as formulaic. You know, the type where the twin comedically adjusts to her new life, eventually grows to love it, and ultimately gets her happy ending.
However, the thing is, people can’t seem to decide whether it’s a good or a bad thing.
Apparently, the flick is turning people into masochists

Others were more… straightforward
The Princess Switch on Netflix is literally just Barbie’s Princess and the Pauper. Smh unoriginal

One thing’s for sure, it’s cheesy AF
The Princess Switch is as cheesy and predictable as one may expect, yet Netflix has produced another “why am I watching this and enjoying it?” movies!!!!

Does the #PrincessSwitch look cheesy, cliche and over the top? Totally. Is it an update version of the Parents Trap? Absolutely. Am I going to watch it and enjoy every minute of it? Damn right!

Our main takeaway? Don’t think too much and just enjoy the damn movie
