Of course, a film about Vanessa Hudgens changing place with the accent also of Vanessa Hudgens, but with a questionable Briton on Netflix she is going to have some small plot holes. But many things in Belgravia do not seem to make sense, and we have questions. Questions like:
How successful is Stacy's business?
Like its typical millennial, Stacy De Novo is the owner of a successful small business in one of the major metropolises of the United States. The first contextual information about their bakery, Stacy & Sweets and Treats, is when a friendly customer calls it "Chicago's best kept secret." Stacy smiles, but begs the woman to spread the word. Obviously, a bakery that is a secret is fun for customers, but not so fun when you own the bakery. Penalty fee. The fact that Stacy's bakery is a bit below the radar would make sense as a motivation for her to participate in an international bakery competition (in addition, she may have a cash prize of which we have never heard).
But the next line in the movie is Stacy's baking assistant, Kevin, who talks about finishing an order for the mayor's office. The mayor of Chicago! What kind of business under the radar is getting jobs from the Mayor of Chicago? And to do things even Plus confused, when Stacy arrives in Belgravia for the great bakery competition, a reporter with a relentless accent puts her in sight and wants to interview her because she says she is the baker who needs to be beaten. She already has an international reputation! So, what about this "best kept secret" without meaning?
And to make things even more confusing, Stacy can leave her bakery in the hands of her main sous-baker for the holidays, which seems like it would be a higher time for a bakery business. If you already have orders from the MAJOR, you would think that you have tons of other orders to fulfill. How is he able to pick up and leave? This is a small business that she owns, It is not a corporate work per hour. Bad business strategy.
Why does Stacy wear a hat that says "Chicago"?
I know we're supposed to know we're in Chicago, but we do not need to read it in his hat. I'm from Chicago. No one who lives there would wear that hat bought clearly at the O & # 39; Hare airport.
Why are not Stacy and Lady Margaret more afraid that they have met someone who looks exactly like them?
You've seen the movie Three identical strangers? The first question you ask when you meet someone who looks exactly like you is: "Were you adopted?" Or even take a signal from The parents' trap, and ask when is your birthday! Stacy and Margaret do not even look like twins, they look identical. How is none of them going crazy? Are you totally happy with a half-explanation about a cousin lost a long time ago? This is not how genetics works. I mean, they even have the same tattoo. Either they are identical twins separated at birth, or they are part of a government cloning experiment.
Either way, they should investigate further. Personally, I wonder why they did not go deeper into the adoption question, since it is an important point of the plot of A prince of Christmas, What Lady Margaret looks and what we learn is Stacy's favorite movie.
Prince Edward and Margaret have not even … have they already kissed?
When Stacy replaces Lady Margaret, her PDA with the prince (at least until they really fall in love) limits herself to a dry kiss on the cheek, the kind reserved for a relative on Thanksgiving Day that does not really interest her. – Even when you visit your affiliate in the evening in her room, while she is in her nightgown. Not even a kiss on the lips for the woman you're going to marry in a week? Even in The Bachelor, they get a night in the fantasy suite to find out if they are … compatible. Are you telling me that in 2018, a handsome prince is still a virgin? Not to embarrass anyone for their choices, but that is not something that anyone talks about or references, nobody seems particularly religious, and it seems that only a weirdo would not kiss his girlfriend on the lips.
Why hypocrisy Does Margaret experience life as a normal girl?
The reason why Lady Margaret asks Stacy to make a life change with her is that Margaret only wants one day to experience life as a normal girl. But … why can not he? One point of the plot in the film is that Lady Margaret is extremely shy with the camera, and nobody knows what it looks like. And, then, it makes sense that when Stacy is walking through Belgravia before meeting Margaret, no one bothers to take a second look. We do not get the moment of "Oh, my God, it's Isabella, take a cheese wheel!" The movie by Lizzie McGuire. In fact, the only The time Stacy is recognized on the street is when she is the duchess as Stacy, and the journalist recognizes her as the favorite to win the bakery contest. Stacy is more recognizable than Lady Margaret! So if Lady Margaret is so Desperate to live a normal life, just for a day or so, why is not it? By the logic of this film, all that is needed are jeans and a shirt.
Why do they spend more time in their homes than their accents?
During the montage "teaching each other to act like the other person", Stacy shows Lady Margaret photos of her home and her bakery. This would make sense if, as in The parents' trap, Lady Margaret was going to take Stacy's life in Chicago. But she is not. How will the appearance of your home emerge? Who is going to ask: "Hey, Stacy, remember me, is your house one room, two bathrooms or what?" zero time practicing their accents which is demonstrably much more difficult and much more important.
Why is Stacy so defensive about her interest in international trade?
It is a classic rom-com girl to show the boy that it is much more complex than he thought, but when "Lady Margaret" and the prince ride on horseback, it really does not make sense that Stacy is so angry when the prince assumes he is not particularly interested in trade. I mean, is Stacy particularly interested in international trade?
All this takes for granted the fact that the prince of a nation, not even its monarch, is the one who is going to negotiate trade agreements, but it is that Is it impolite for him to assume that the intricacies of the wheat prices of the small European nations or whatever would not interest Lady Margaret? It is not a character defect to not know or worry about those things.
I went to an Ivy League school and went politics older, and I do not know anything on European trade agreements. Stacy is a baker from Chicago; there is absolutely no reason for her to know about the duties of the prince. You can be a feminist feminist and still not know everything!
But also, does not this country have a parliament and a prime minister? And if these are decisions that the monarch takes, I mean … there is a king right there. Why is this the responsibility of the prince?
How is the royal family so bad in charity?
Does it take Stacy, a random American girl, to point out that maybe they should visit the orphanage for which the royal family raised money? And reading children's books is such a special and generous movement? In 2018, the monarchy basically only It exists for charirty photographs. How has this royal family never done anything?
How is Stacy playing Twister with a skirt and heels?
A tight and straight miniskirt, and high heel shoes Twister is an uncomfortable game to play in private, much less with a skirt, let alone in public. and much less if you are the future king and queen of a country. There is a zero percent chance that a shot per skirt was not the best of the Daily mail the next day. Imagine the scandal of a real behaving like this!
How is there no more wedding preparations a week before a royal wedding?
Surprisingly, there is nothing left to do except decide if a salad dressing should or should not have peanuts.
Why does not Stacy wear a hat on her first breakfast like Margaret?
Okay, so this one needs a little explanation: when Stacy pretends to be Lady Margaret for the first time, she's in her nightgown, trying on the duchess hats in her closet when the prince shows up at the door. Still wearing her hat, she invents a false explanation that in Montenaro, it is customary to always wear a hat when you are drinking tea, even if it is at night, in your pajamas. And the rules are the most important thing for Stacy: that is the character trait that defines it. This is the first time she and the prince have joined together, because both agree that the rules should not have exceptions or substitutions. Drinking tea, put on a hat. I have it.
And yet the very next morning The duchess goes down to breakfast and drinks tea. without a hat If you are going to invent false rules, you must fulfill them! And the prince says nothing. This is our first indication that Prince Edward will be a weak and ineffective monarch, without memory or without interest in tradition and coherence.
Is the Christmas pastry contest televised? It's live?
Because nobody seems to react or worry when the Duchess takes off her sunglasses and reveals that she looks identical to the woman who has just won the competition, and everyone can speak privately behind the scenes without worrying or worrying about the fact that they are on the stage of a television for a competition program that is still being recorded.
Why are they pureeing berries inside the cake when the cake is completely finished?
So Stacy's rival, Brianna, sneaks into the night before the competition to cut the string from Stacy's blender. Even ignoring the fact that someone should have noticed it before, and Stacy should be able to get a new one, the first time Stacy sees that something is wrong is when she tries to make a berry puree. But for What? The cake is already full and completely frozen! It's in your bank! And when the judges taste the cake, it seems that the puree is inside the cake as one of the layers? HOW? Also, who would use a mixer to make a berry puree? To make jam, the berries are cooked in a saucepan. She needs a mixer for that, but not, say, the icing she's already made?
Wait, why does Margaret marry Prince Edward?
They mention briefly that since her parents died, she feels the need to defend must, But this is not the seventeenth century. She does not need to marry a prince to forge an alliance between her nations. This is not how things work. And we to know This is not how things work because when the prince announces a week before his wedding that he is really marrying a random Chicago baker, nobody cares. The king and queen do not care. This was not an important arranged marriage and he did not to have Marry someone from a real family. And neither does Lady Margaret because she's super happy dating Kevin. So, why did they get married in the first place?
Who is the magical elder who keeps appearing?
WHO IS THIS OLD MAN? I'M FURIOUS. WHAT TYPE OF "CHRISTMAS DESIRE" GIVEN? IS THE ANGEL? DO NOT DO ANYTHING MAGIC! It Just Says RANDOM EXPOSITION BITS! You can not present a magical angel character without a wink to the audience or reveal that it is actually an angel or something, because as it is, it is just a very intrusive stranger. The strangest part is when Stacy sees him in Belgravia after seeing him in Chicago a week earlier, and she asks him about it. "How could I Be in Chicago? "He asks with condescension. Um, on a plane, weird. Stacy was in Chicago, and now she is here. This is how international travel works. I hate you, deux ex machina old piece of garbage. You're the worst.
The switch of the princess now it's being aired on Netflix.
