Two promising young stars turn this boilerplate Disney Channel movie into a decent diversion for `tween girls. A funny story of a princess and tomboy who join together to battle various high school horrors, it also includes a nice message about self-esteem.

Selena Gomez ("Wizards of Waverly Place") shines in her first starring role, with comic sensibilities that hint at a long career. Likable co-star Demi Lovato ("Camp Rock," "Sonny Without a Chance") adds charm of her own, and together the two young stars have great chemistry. Also worth mentioning is another newcomer, Jamie Chung, who MTV viewers will remember from "The Real World: San Diego." She plays Chelsea, the front-runner for homecoming queen.

Girls between the ages of say, 7 to 13, should love it. If you buy it for one, you'll score bonus brownie points by telling her that the Jonas Brothers co-wrote one of the featured songs, "Two Worlds Collide."

What a great movie this was! Normally from a Disney Channel movie, you wouldn't expect it to be a blockbuster movie, but this movie is one of the best ones that Disney has had in a long time! Although it doesn't quite beat the Hannah Montana phoenominon, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato are very talented young ladies. It even adds on that these two girls are best friends in real life because they have a lot of chemistry together while acting in this movie. It's a great movie to watch with your girlfriends and fun for the whole family! There's comedy, romance, and drama. This movie has almost everything you could ask for and it teaches the moral lesson that you should always be true to yourself, it's okay to let your inner beauty show, don't judge too quicky, and most of all, best friends will always be there for each other and you should never let boys come between that. This was a very cute movie and I would give it five stars right off the bat!

Princess Protection Program doesn't really have to have a story, as long as there's a shopping scene set to hot music, a wacky mess scene, a mismatched pair that get to like each other and a not-too-hazardous denoument where girl power saves the day. Add the standard heroic, handsome dad (but only attractive in an "old people" way 'cause otherwise it would be ewwww), assorted mean girls and cute boys, shake well and you have a hit for the J-14 market. To paraphrase Carly Simon, nobody does it better than Disney Channel.

Sally Field-ish sprite Demi Lovato (please someone do a remake of The Flying Nun with this young star!) and snappy but not too caustic Selena Gomez stay true to the onscreen personas established by their respective TV series, though one wonders why they didn't mix things up a little by having Lovato play the eye-rolling American tween and Gomez play the affected princess, who doesn't use contractions much like Barbara Eden did on I Dream Of Jeannie ("Master, are you not pleased?" "Major Healey, do you not think my master would like me to blink an elephant into his office?")

It's still grand movie matinee fun that stretches logic and story sense with the same elán that The Monkey's Uncle did for Annette Funicello and Tommy Kirk. You never worry for a minute about anyone being in serious danger and the biggest hazard besides snarky rival girls is yogurt. My daughter loved it, so case closed.

The DVD does not include too much that we didn't see on Disney Channel interstitials, including the "aren't we the best of friends" segment that was brought to fever pitch on premiere night when the two BFFs hosted the movie and had oh-so-much fun.

Sort of like Gidget and LaRue.

This movie empowers the pre teen (tween) to teenage girls giving them skills on looking at others with who they are not how they appear. This movie takes into consideration differences in cultures and learning to live with those around you who are different.

This movie will have a lot to discuss afterward such as "are there people you judge that you should take another look at?" & "are there people you want to be like that are not nice to others?" & "how can you learn to treat others in a kind manner while sticking up for who you are and what you believe?"

A super girl night mother / daughter movie!

This is a cute movie for younger girls and teens. The Princess Protection Program is an international program to protect princesses from coups and assassination plots. More importantly, it throws a Spanish princess together with a southern girl. The two learn about each other and how to cope with the challenges of high school "princesses." The real princess shows the high school snobs how to act with class and dignity. Overall, for a Disney made-for-TV special, I found the movie surprisingly entertaining and not too corny.

Very cute. It is nice how the girls became friends even though they were from different worlds. How the princess had to act like a normal high school girl was funny. Selena Gomez was charming after the initial rudeness. She realized the other girl was just trying to fit in.

After seeing this movie about 6 or 7 times via Netflix rental, I thought, "Oh, I've got to get this movie!" So, I ordered it at DeepDiscount.com and it came right away! There are lots of things that I love about this movie: 1. The cast, especially Selena Gomez & Demi Lovato (those two actresses work well together and play their characters to perfection), 2. The plot, where Lovato's character is about to be crowned Queen of her country, Costa Luna, however, a month before the coronation, the palace gets attacked. Fortunately, agents from the Princess Protection Program (PPP) are at the scene and they rescue the princess and take out the attacker's henchmen in the process, but they leave behind the Queen and she gets taken as a hostage. Then, at PPP headquarters, the princess goes through 4 stages: 1. Extraction, which brought her there, 2. Transition which leads to stage 3. Transformation, where she gets a new name, Rosie Gonzalez, a new hairstyle & wardrobe, then, finally, stage 4. Relocation, so that nobody can know where to find her and that place is rural Louisiana, where she will live with the agent who rescued her and his daughter, Carter, played by Selena Gomez. However, Carter shows hostility toward Rosie until Rosie explains her situation, the two become best friends, then Carter shows Rosie how to be normal instead of royal and, in return, Rosie shows Carter how to reveal her inner princess. Lastly, I like the 4 lessons that are taught in the movie: 1. Always be true to yourself, 2. It's okay to let your inner beauty show, 3. Don't judge too quickly and 4. Best friends will always be there when they need each other. So, I recommend this movie to anyone who loves Selena Gomez/Demi Lovato or is in the mood for a good Disney movie because, believe me, it is WONDERFUL!!!
