The Princess Switch: Switched Again – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 103
“It’s like Christmas was projectile-vomited onto every inch of this movie.”
Belgravian baker Daniel Barnes and chief of no staff Corky McDonnell overdose on Christmas with The Princess Switch: Switched Again. This sequel prioritizes Christmas quantity over Christmas quality, a strategy that includes casting Vanessa Hudgens in three roles.
Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss state-sponsored bakeoffs, evil Christmas colors, suggestive dialogue and full-Firth sweaters.

Darcey’s dare: “It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The holidays are upon us, so that can only mean that it’s time to watch a really bad Christmas movie (or two). I’m giving you a gift you can open early – The Princess Switch starring Vanessa Hudgens, but wait what’s that in your stocking over there? The Princess Switch (colon) Switched Again!?! You both must have been very good this year. Happy Holidays!”
IMDB synopsis: “When Duchess Margaret unexpectedly inherits the throne to Montenaro and hits a rough patch with Kevin, it’s up to her double Stacy to save the day before a new lookalike, party girl Fiona foils their plans.”
