All Critics (123) | Top Critics (33)

Scenes end abruptly, laughs are as rare as yetis, and the overarching question seems to be: Can we turn this into a franchise?

Was there a point of a sequel to a movie that was just decent after all?

Reel Film Reviews

Audience Reviews for The Princess Diaries 2 - Royal Engagement

Again i still very much enjoy these movies, i think this second one is maybe more funny than the first, still very enjoyable and light hearted.
Its a great teen comedy to keep you amused.

Film Crazy

Super Reviewer

No, this was way too cheesy. Anne Hathaway's carelessness was way too much. But I did liked the romantic moments which was the only part I enjoyed.

Dead Angel

Super Reviewer

It was not even nere the first. The first was original and funny, this was not. This film was pure torture to watch, what a horrible film.
