A recent graduate of Princeton, Mia is now moving to Genovia to learn how to rule; her grandmother Queen Clarisse Renaldi (Julie Andrews, in a wonderful reprisal role) will have to teach her poise, decorum and diplomacy before stepping down as queen of Genovia, so Mia can be crowned. Best friend Lily (Heather Matarazzo) is attending Berkeley, and Mia and Lily's brother Michael (Robert Schwartzman) are now just friends, as Michael is off touring the country with his band. When Mia arrives in Genovia only to learn that another person is eligible for her crown, and that by Parliament's rule she must marry before 30 days is up or forfeit her crown, she is stunned! Mia has always wanted to marry for love, and who can possibly expect someone to fall in love in just 30 days?
In Mia's search for an eligible Prince Charming she comes across a lovely young man named Andrew Jacoby (Callum Blue) from England, who is perfect for her in every way: but can she love him? Another is in her path as well: a guy named Nicholas (Chris Pine), with whom she dances briefly at her birthday ball (she flirts with him mildly). When Mia discovers shortly thereafter that "Sir" Nicholas is actually THE Lord Devereaux that is trying to steal her crown, she is quite upset!Read more ›
Princess Mia (Hatheway) has just graduated college. She is soon going to take over as Queen of Genovia from her grandmother, Queen Clarisse (Andrews). However, Mia learns that she must marry in 30 days or forfeit the crown of Genovia to another rightful heir, Nicholas Devereaux (played by, please excuse me for this, the total hottie Chris Pine). His uncle, Vicount Mabrey is really the one who wants Nicholas to be King, but Nicholas goes along with the scheme nonetheless. So Mia picks a decent guy who's sweet and charming and likeable, but can she go through with this wedding? Check out the movie for yourself to find out... though it's fairly obvious what will happen about fifteen minutes into the film, but who cares, it's great anyway.
Anne Hatheway is such a delight on screen, carrying an aura of likeability. Julie Andrews is, of course, wonderful as well and completely believable as a Queen, as she is in the first film. And as I've already said, Chris Pine who plays Nicholas is absolutely gorgeous, completely sending me head over heels, and while I like to have composure about this kind of thing that doesn't matter in a movie at all (ah-hem-- how hot a guy is), I just can't help myself.
Fans, definitely check this one out, you won't be disappointed. Everyone else, by all means check this out as well but leave your Citizen Kane expectations at home. This is just a fun movie! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
I enjoyed "Princess Diaries" so I was looking forward to seeing this sequel. I had hoped that the sequel would be at least as good as the first film and I certainly wasn't disappointed.
"Princess Diaries 2" has the same charm, humor and sense of fun of the first film but this one is even better. Firstly, the fantasy and romance quotient is higher. Secondly, many of the original characters (and the actors who played them) are back including Mia's best friend Lilly (Heather Matarazzo), Joe (Hector Elizondo) and Mia's mom (Caroline Goodall). Thirdly, some new characters are added including Mia's assortment of would-be suitors, the devious Viscount Mabry (John Rhys-Davies), her dim-witted ladies maids Brigitte and Brigitta and the colorful assortment of security guards, servants and footmen who populate the palace.
The story begins with Mia (the always charming and lovely Anne Hathaway) graduating from college and on the verge of turning 21. She arrives in Genovia with the intent of inheriting the throne from her grandmother Queen Clarisse (Julie Andrews). However, the law declares that she must marry before she rules and so the stage is set for her search for an appropriate husband. Mia then finds herself torn between two very different suitors - Andrew and Nicholas (played by handsome actors Callum Blue and Chris Pine) - and also the dilemma of choosing duty versus love.
I took my young daughter to see this film and we both enjoyed it...Read more ›
