As they have in years past, in 2019 Netflix continued its tradition of releasing original holiday movies instead of uploading classic favourites to the streaming service. This year, the platform released six movies for viewers to enjoy, and it looks like A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby was the lowest rated.
This year's festivities started off back in November with the release of Holiday In the Wild, which wasn't exactly the most holiday-themed film. After viewers weighed in, the movie ended up with an audience score of 50% on Rotten Tomatoes.
The film Holiday Rush came in with a mediocre score of 65%, meaning that the only holiday film that Netflix users really loved this year was the animated tale Klaus, which scored an astounding 99% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Yesterday, December 5, Netflix released the third film in its Christmas Prince franchise, titled A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby. The first film in the franchise came out back in 2017 with a score of 48% on Rotten Tomatoes.
The second film, A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding came out in 2018 and received an audience score of only 29%.
With such a low ranking on the second film, viewers have been curious to see if the third film would be able to redeem itself, and it looks like it did — at least a little bit.
The Royal Baby is currently sitting at a mediocre rating of 40% on RT, making it Netflix's lowest-rated Christmas film of 2019.
Even though the rating may be low, those of you who enjoy a good cheesy Christmas love story will probably enjoy it, especially if you're hoping to see some clever references to Meghan and Prince Harry.
