If you're looking for one of those feel-good Christmas movies made only to reaffirm a kind of mindless giddy holiday mood, look no further than "A Princess for Christmas" (8 tonight, Hallmark).
Just to ensure an emotional response, "Princess" piles it on. We've got orphans, a Cinderella-like love story, a Scrooge-like transformation, and a chance to show that Americans are better than those snobby Brits.
The words "Once upon a time..." introduce the story of Jules (Katie McGrath), a klutzy and pretty 20something who's raising her niece Maddie (Leilah De Maza) and nephew Milo (Travis Turner), because their parents were killed in an accident during Christmas time. A year later, Jules gets laid off from her job at an antique store just in time to get an invitation and free plane ticket to take the kids to meet their estranged grandfather (Sir Roger Moore). He's estranged because the grandfather, a duke, thought his son married down. But now that his son is dead he wants the connection.
