Bastou um pouco de ambição para que este simpático representante do gênero 'água-com-açúcar' deixasse o similar (e ruim) A Filha do Presidente a anos-luz de distância.
| Original Score: 3/5
| Original Score: 9/10
I know I'm supposed to intensely dislike this latest Mandy Moore offering. The problem is that I don't dislike it -- intensely or otherwise.
| Original Score: 3/5
It confronts the universal adolescent plea for freedom from parental supervision, taken from the sly angle of a rich kid's rejection of material privilege
This brand of romantic comedy mostly depends on the appeal of its stars, and Mandy Moore is an uncommonly gifted young talent.
| Original Score: 68/100
Chasing Liberty will probably win over as many fuddy-duddy fathers as fillies with its mixture of sweetness tempered with genial cynicism.
It's all quite engaging.
| Original Score: 3/4
The movie's most disarming aspect is its old-fashioned regard for Europe as a charming, fun, cosmopolitan, friendly place.
It's light, airy fun, with the cheery snap of bubblegum and the proficiency of a well-turned sitcom.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Rather than off-putting or cloying, its youthful exuberance is positively contagious.
Cute, sweet and totally harmless.
Chasing Liberty is fine (if empty) fun, and much credit for that should go to feisty Moore.
| Original Score: B
It's your typical stuff but the leads are easy on the eyes, and Jeremy Piven and Annabella Sciorra add some fun as Moore's bodyguards.
| Original Score: B-
[A] happy trip.
It's nothing that countless romances haven't done before, but then the target audience... isn't likely to have seen... Roman Holiday or It Happened One Night.
Teen-targeted romantic comedy about President's daughter Mandy Moore pursuing her liberties is surprisingly sweet and civil.
Familiarity doesn't always breed contempt. In the case of Chasing Liberty, it breeds affection.
Like the recent Freaky Friday, pic also manages to maintain an appealingly even-keel temperament, sympathizing with the frustrations of both parents and children.
It's pure formula, but it would take a true sourpuss to sneer at it.
A likable, light-as-air road comedy.
