The Princess Diaries 2

2006-03-30 12:49

Five years have passed since Manhattan dwelling teenager Mia (Anne Hathaway) discovered that she was princess of the far away kingdom of Genovia. Since then Mia has matured into a beautiful young woman and is now ready to assume her role as princess of her kingdom.

But no sooner has she moved into the Royal Palace with her wise grandmother Queen Clarisse, (Julie Andrews) than she learns her days as a princess are numbered - she must immediately take the crown herself and become queen.

To make matters worse Genovian law states that a princess must be married before being crowned. Now Mia must endure a parade of suitors who'd all like to be her king.

What the critics are saying:

"...Marshall doesn't know a class act when he sees it, squandering a landmark scene (Andrews singing on screen for the first time in two decades) and obliging her to play second fiddle to Hathaway's bland teen lead."
- Neil Smith, BBCi Film

"A number of the goofy set pieces fall flat but tweens should be too busy swooning at midnight horse rides and bling-bling walk-in wardrobes to notice."
- Megan Lehmann, New York Post

"Sometimes charming, sometimes a tad too silly and all the time predictable, Princess Diaries 2 gives you what you'd expect and doesn't take many chances besides allowing for the possibility that a princess might be okay without a husband."
- Sara Gebhardt, Washington Post

Both Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews bring buckets of charm and elegance to the project, but the plot is just too thin and the movie flounders badly as a result.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

2016-10-14 07:38

Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
