We've already started cuddling up with our hot chocolates to watch our fave festive films. Now, we know they're usually a cheese-fest but that's not always a bad thing, as Netflix's latest Christmas movie, A Castle for Christmas, shows us.
The film starring Brooke Shields and Cary Elwes follows an author looking to escape from a scandal by fleeing to Scotland. There she finds a castle she falls in love with, owned by an irritable Duke.
Watch the trailer below:
Sounds like a classic Christmas romcom that makes it onto the list of our festive guilty pleasures.
And viewers have been talking about how it's so bad that it's actually good.
One person shared on Twitter: "We watched 'A Castle for Christmas' on Netflix last night. It falls into the 'so bad it's good' category. It's hilarious. We enjoyed it.
"It takes a minute or two and quite a few bursts of 'WTF' before you settle in to the surrealist pantomime Scotland that Netflix has created."
Another tweeter agreed: "Just watched A Castle for Christmas on Netflix. So so cheesy & a Scottish accent worse than Mel Gibson's in Braveheart but have to say it’s so bad it’s actually good, really enjoyed it especially the beautiful Scottish countryside & plenty of whisky drinking too."
"A Castle For Christmas is terrible. I loved it. (Brooke Shields and Cary Elwes look amazing and his Scottish accent didn't make me want to break the telly, which is good)", wrote another fan.
"‘A Castle For Christmas’ has so little plot and conflict that it might not even count as a story, officially?! Good harmless watching", assured one Twitter user.
Other people also noted how happy they were to see a romcom with older actors getting to have the fun: ""A Castle for Christmas" was surprisingly good. I liked that Netflix made a movie where the leads are 50+. The Scottish locations made it a treat. Brooke Shields should appear in more movies."
With some being especially fond of the male lead: "Cozy feel-good rom com. I wouldn’t mind hiding away in a Scottish pub to knit and drool over Cary Elwes while trying to buy a castle with an author salary."
Can't wait to be transported to a Scottish castle this Christmas!
