A fun romp for girls of all ages.

The larger message -- that you should marry for the right reasons only when you're ready -- is one everyone can applaud.

The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement is unapologetically aimed towards young girls, making this review virtually moot.

[The film] runs an insufferable two hours, leisurely chugging toward an ending most of the audience will have predicted 15 minutes in.

Saddled with the sort of dialogue that would fell a von Trapp.

A chocolate-box sequel whose rose-tinted view of constitutional monarchy will provoke hoots of derision this side of the pond.

Unlikely to appeal to anyone, regardless of their thoughts on the first film.

If you are a prepubescent girl with a five-year old intellect, this is a smash hit. If you're not, bring a good book.

Shadows on the Wall

Constantly opts for contrived cheesiness, slathering on the cuteness with a trowel.

Premiere Magazine

This threadbare sequel takes a page from such revisionist fairy tales as Shrek and Ella Enchanted, movies that assume we've grown so weary of the same old Cinderella story that they go out of their way to invert the formula.

Sadly, the film leaves you with the feeling this was done just for the money this sequel would possibly bring.

Toy tiaras for orphans! (the first one's always free)...Another day, another dollar for Disney's lucrative business of breeding...ever-longing dream princesses.

Simple romantic fluff that at least doesn't shortchange its target audience in the usual condescending manner.

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

Film Threat

I admit, I'm more or less hardwired to dislike this movie, but even by Garry Marshall's abysmally low standards, there isn't much to recommend The Princess Diaries 2.

Sure, the characters are very basic, the situation has been seen before and you can practically write the script from frame one. But that doesn't stop it from working.

Even the long-awaited Sound of Music coming from Julie Andrews is uninspiring.
