True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Movie Review: A Princess for Christmas



Starring: Sam Heughan, Roger Moore, Katie McGrath
Directed by: Michael Damian

BLURB: Christmas is right around the corner, and Jules Daly (Kate McGrath) is doing her best to create a loving home as new guardian to her mischievous niece and nephew. But when she loses her job and an exasperated nanny on the same day, a mysterious and unexpected invitation arrives.

REVIEW:  Now why did I watch and am I reviewing a Christmas movie in May you ask? Because the movie stars Jamie Fraser ah er Sam Heughan that’s why! LOL. Yes our beloved Sam from Outlander starred in this lil movie back in 2011 before he donned the kilt and became the king of one of our favorite book and TV series Outlander.

I was really surprised by how good this little movie was it has. I really enjoyed it and I do intend to buy this one myself soon as my budget allows. It’s a great little feel good family friendly movie that the whole family can snuggle up and enjoy together. 

Just a little on what it’s about Jules Daly (Kate McGrath) has been left custody of her niece and nephew after the tragic death of her sister and brother in law. And quite frankly Jules has her hands full with them mostly because of the rebellious and troublemaking preteen nephew who wants to act out and quite frankly needs a good spanking! The little girl is a bit mischievous but she’s mostly just sweet and making honest mistakes to try to help that end up well not helping bless her lol. Now Christmas time has rolled around and Jules finds herself suddenly out of a job and who shows up on her doorstep but a real honest to goodness butler who is employed by the children’s grandfather who suddenly wants to finally see his grandkids for the first time. (Note the grandfather is a titled snob who for all intents and purposes disowned his son when he chose to marry Jules’s sister who was just a commoner from the States).
He offers to fly them over to England and cover all their expenses to spend Christmas with him at the family castle yep you heard it right a bonafide castle. Jules first balks totally at the summons from the jerk who shunned her sister and her husband and children while they were alive but now all of a sudden wants to play grandpa but then she reconsiders and thinks that they deserve to meet their grandfather and that he can also afford to give them a much better Christmas than she can especially since she just lost her job.

So they pack their bags and head off to jolly ol England where they step into what seems a literal fairtale castle with maids and footmen the whole lot at their beck and call. But things don’t go exactly smoothly as grandpa (played by the wonderful Roger Moore) is still a bit of an uppity butthead at first. But things change when they meet their Uncle Ashton played to perfection by the gorgeous and a bit uppity himself at first Sam Heughan.

It isn’t long though before the Americans teach the starched Brits how to get their knickers out of a wad and relax and actually have a little fun. What follows is a sweet and heartwarming little story that leaves you smiling and feeling good at the end.


I highly recommend this one as a great holiday film for the whole family. As I said I will be adding this one permanently to my own collection soon. Sam was wonderful in this and though not as ruggedly handsome you can still see the charm and genuine goodness shining off the screen that made us all fall in love with him in Outlander. Do yourself a favor and get this one for yourself today and have it handy for Christmas.

 


Officially it wasn't rated because it was a TV Movie but if it was it would be G it's completely clean and safe for the whole family.

this one is cheaper to by than it is to rent so go all the way it's well worth it anyway!
