Monte Carlo -- it's as a pretty as a picture.

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.

Mature viewers will appreciate the rare lack of bad language in what for them will be a reminder of screwball comedies past.

Trashily enjoyable thanks to some expertly assembled clichs, an assortment of picturesque locations and likeable chemistry between the three leads.

This is a film that knows what its teen audience wants - and gives it to it in spades.

The film's tween-age target demographic will be perfectly content with what they see here.

I probably shouldn't admit this, but I was just fine with the mistaken identity tween girl fantasy coming of age drama Monte Carlo.

More than a bit silly and contrived, but so agreeably cast and well executed as to certainly mitigate these shortcomings for its core audience, who'll lap up the improbably romantic adventure.

I'm shocked, but this movie respects its audience more than 'Larry Crowne' or 'Transformers 3'
July 5, 2011
A throwback to escapist rom com fare in the sixties. Totally unrealistic but still fun for the "tween" set.

Bezucha directs the agreeable cast with a deft touch capturing the spirit of the old screwball comedies.
July 1, 2011
The movie hits a surprising range of emotional grace notes, including several moments of genuine regret, and concludes with an understated moral lesson about the value of self-respect over social status,

Silly but sweet travel comedy says to be true to yourself.
