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

[A] needless but charming sequel.

Follow the fun in this excellent sequel that I liked better than the original.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

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

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.

Fans of the first Princess Diaries will find enough laughs and diamonds in the rough to sustain them.

Would succeed with the pre-teen set; nothing here for adults.

It's the movie equivalent of a sticker scrapbook filled with rainbows and unicorns, featuring guaranteed girl-pleasers like a princess, a romance and a slumber party.

San Antonio Express-News

This Princess falters before getting to the altar. Once that near-magical event happens (especially, if you're a little girl), the kingdom is enchanted once again.

| Original Score: 2.5/4

The film had a goofy sense of humor, some deft casting...and, best of all, a genuinely charming, star-making performance by Anne Hathaway in the lead role.

Starts out rather awkwardly but succeeds almost in spite of itself.

A number of the goofy set pieces fall flat but tweens should be too busy swooning at midnight horse rides and bling-bling walk-in wardrobes to notice.

Ought to charm its loyal subjects, or at least their less demanding little sisters.

The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement picks up right where the 2001 hit original left off -- not only in its story line, but in its appeal to young girls.

Still going strong at the respective ages of 69 and 68, director Garry Marshall and his singing co-star Julie Andrews are the true royal couple of this straightforward sequel.
