But I think that if you enjoy mindless, cheesy Christmas movies then it is definitely worth the watch & will put you in the Christmas spirit!

The thin and bland plot full of "romantic" stereotypes is further riddled by clicheed dialogue in nearly every scene and cardbox characterizations.

Mom: Hey, I'd rather have absurdly silly than boring, and this was very, very silly.

Being transported to the middle of a Christmas festival, Cole wanders around in confusion and finds himself bumping into Brooke (Vanessa Hudgens) where the two have moment that only two strangers could experience in a romantic film as they share a long pause and stare into each others eyes.

I just watched this movie for the first time and I enjoyed it!!

Pretty cliché and a bit cringe sometimes.

A very sweet and enjoyable Christmas movie.

For me, it's too long and I was boring during all the film.

Don't waste your time.

It just seemed slow to me and I was kind of bored throughout the film.

a waste of time .

The plot is cliché for a romantic comedy movie.

I usually enjoy romcoms and a little cheesiness but this movie, if you can call it that, was really boring and uber cheesy.

Very cliche and very cute

Regardless, it is very enjoyable.

The sets are beautifully decorated, Vanessa's outfits are stunning and the warm Christmas magic and silly romantic jokes are amplified by the charming co-star, Josh Whitehouse as Sir Cole.

It was charming and enjoyable despite me not being a fan of the main actress.

It was still cute and heart warming, and I totally enjoyed it.

Worst Movie I have seen this year .

I actually wish that once people wil create a super suspenseful xmas movie to truly bring the xmas miracle to life

It's an alright Christmas movie and quite enjoyable.

The movie has no message and you probably won't watch more than once.

This is the worst movie that I have seen this year.

Very boring and nothing new.

cliche & feel good .

But in the meantime the story was entertaining and it had some funny parts of how a 14th century knight acted in the 21st century.

The scenes that were supposed to be suspenseful were not even that good and went over so quickly.

Boring, save your time.

It's enjoyable and enough reason to watch it!.

The Knight Before Christmas is an enjoyable film that provides plenty of cliche scenes and heart warming moments that whole family will enjoy.

I highly recommend it.

I have no negative criticism, for I believe the movie was definitely worth watching and I recommend it to everyone.

The Cliche Before Christmas...

While watching the movie there were times where I personally could not keep viewing the movie because of the amount of cliche there was in the movie.


Cliche and boring all the way .

But it's cute, funny, enjoyable, and very sweet.

Sure, most of us watch these popcorn movies for the cliched plot and the obvious ending, but I would say The Knight Before Christmas is definitely one of its own, with a plot so obvious that it might cause you to fall asleep if viewed in a comfy couch.

This movie is a total cliche and with the format that we already have seen this year with "Noelle" from Disney+.

The lighting was great I liked how it was changed every now and then with more shadows to convey more intense emotions, and more light in the shots to convey happier ones which benefited the cinematography by allowing each scene to be viewed easily.

The creator of the movie was able to get his point across while also entertaining the audience with magic, love and laughter.

Very boring, bad story line.

When closely analyzed, you can see that the plot of the story is even more cliche than the typical cliched Hallmark Christmas movies.

Derivative and predictable, your typical "Fish out of Water" movie that has been before to death.

Yes, it is cliché (a lot).

Pleasant But Dull .

One feels like it's a pharmaceutical commercial, so innocuous and bland.

Enjoyed it .

No story and no message .

Terrible yet enjoyable .

Worth watching over and over!

The chemistry between Hudgens and Whitehouse is indeed very good and I assume they do the best they can with the uninspiring script.

Very entertaining and Christmasy .

A lot if cliche situations with some line that make you want to be brain dead.

Entertaining film with a research error and a weird setting combiation.

A knight from 14th century Norwich, England, time (and distance) travels to 21st Century Ohio, USA to fulfil his quest, with predictable consequences.

It was cliche, cheesy, and did not run smoothly.

However, producer Vanessa Hudgens uses a decent budget well, providing a lovely festive backdrop, an entertaining script and, crucially, actors that aren't embarrassingly bad.

However this film was formulaic, the set decoration was over the top excessive and the two costars had zero chemistry.

This is one of the most enjoyable, original Christmas movies I've seen in years.

Bored within the first few minutes Why aren't there any great new Christmas movies.

If you are looking for your classic romance cliche movie than The Knight Before Christmas is the movie you should watch.

It's not a 10, but I've already watched it twice with my wife and enjoyed it both times.

The movie is so repetitive you already know what's going to happen and how its going to end.

This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

It's a Christmas romance movie , being cheesy is a given , the actors are likeable , the movie is enjoyable therefore it's actually a pretty good Christmas movie.

High interest in this movie after watching the very enjoyable Vanessa Hudgens princes Christmas movie from last year.

A movie that grows - very slightly on you - but still leaves you with a completely bland taste .

This movie is cringe and uneventful throughout.
