Monte Carlo (2011) - Rotten Tomatoes

Monte Carlo (2011)



Critic Consensus: Although it has its charming moments, Monte Carlo is mostly silly, predictable stuff that never pushes beyond the boundaries of formula.

Critic Reviews for Monte Carlo

All Critics (93) | Top Critics (29)

Ridiculously contrived, superficial throughout and too sugary, 'Monte Carlo' is still too innocent and convivial to cast too many aspersions on.

Teen girls who want a vicarious overseas jaunt are advised to follow Emma's lead in one scene of Monte Carlo and watch To Catch a Thief instead.

It's all frothy and silly, but Selena Gomez and her co-stars are sweet and appealing and are sure to win over the film's target audience.

More gum-popping than jaw-dropping, it's the kind of light entertainment that Elvis used to make.

So corny that a cereal company could have sponsored it...

Short on wit and invention, the film comes over as Texas's answer to Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris.

Audience Reviews for Monte Carlo


Pretty cute lighthearted teenager filled rom-com...

Okay movie for tween girls to watch. (I can't imagine it's appeal would go too much further than that). Young cast are all good here in a far fetched little story about mistaken identity. Not something I would watch again, or was anxious to see in the first place, but pleasant enough use of an hour and a half. I think the scenery around Paris was actually more interesting than the thin little plot, but for what it is, it's okay. It's extremely Disney (I have no idea if it is Disney or not, or it just comes across like it). Happy ending for all.

Three young women vacationing in Paris find themselves whisked away to Monte Carlo after one of the girls is mistaken for a British heiress.

Good movie. I enjoyed it pretty nice, although the main idea of the story was not original in a way nevertheless the story plays out well and spot on. Great young cast with potential.

A young woman, her uptight step sister and her best friend use their savings for a long anticipated dream trip to Paris, which turns out to be a big disappointment. When they decide to take a break from their lousy tour and duck into the lobby of a luxury hotel, one of them is mistaken for a spoiled British heiress. Before they get the chance to reveal their true identities they are wrapped up in misadventures during a vacation to Monte Carlo instead.
