THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED.
As Queen Amber (Rose McIver) and the whole of Aldovia are eagerly awaiting the birth of her child, the royal family faces a crisis involving a neighboring monarchy. The third entry in this Yuletide franchise is the worst yet, taking turns being saccharine and moronic, even celebrating the autocratic nature of the two monarchies. One gets the feeling that the filmmakers are mocking their audience; so much here is embarrassing. McIver and Ben Lamb are thoroughly wooden.
2019-U.S. Made for Streaming. 84 min. Color. Directed by John Schultz. Cast: Rose McIver (Queen Amber), Ben Lamb (King Richard), Alice Krige (Queen Helena), Honor Kneafsey, Sarah Douglas, Theo Devaney.
