Generic princess and the pauper movie
16 November 2018 | by hjalsayeghSee all my reviews

A movie that belongs on the hallmark channel. As generic as can be without anything that'll offend.

The princess here is actually a Duchess and the pauper is a baker and they run into each other on Christmas while the later is preparing for a baking competition.

I feel like I read a studio exec. checklist just now... Well the rest of the movie actually goes like a checklist too. Girls meet, switch places, go through the motions of the Prince and the Pauper but with a princess diary peppered in as well as a Christmas miracle for good measures and true love because why not. Everyone is happy all the time and you can just play this in the background and miss nothing.

It's a piece of fluff so if that's your thing go ahead, just keep in mind that the first 15 minutes is a painfully awkward exposition that was both badly written and poorly acted. Get past that and you get to... every hallmark movie ever.
