One of the most delightful and touching comedies to grace the big-screen in years that features no swearing, no sex, no violence, no drugs -- and no dull moments.

Garry Marshall directs with the same fairy tale charm he gave "Pretty Woman," but without the disturbing prostitution angle.

The film was directed by Garry Marshall, who turned "Pretty Woman" into a fairy tale for big girls 11 years ago. In many ways, "Diaries" is the G-rated remake...

Those in the market for what it has to offer will find it pleasantly agreeable, and those who aren’t won’t be in the theater in the first place.

A modest, enjoyable fairy tale that easily outcharms its animated stablemates of the past decade.

A charming story that transcends gender and age entertaining with sprightly ease.

Does raise a lot of decent if familiar themes, exploring teen self-awareness, self-consciousness, friendship, ego and the like.

All young girls are princesses inside, although many don't know it and some never will. The more movies that let us in on this wonderful secret, the better.
