Monte Carlo Reviews

December 29, 2011
More gum-popping than jaw-dropping, it's the kind of light entertainment that Elvis used to make.
October 26, 2011
So corny that a cereal company could have sponsored it...
October 23, 2011
Short on wit and invention, the film comes over as Texas's answer to Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris.
October 22, 2011
Harmless enough to a point... but the idea that girls should aspire to little more than acquiring a boyfriend, a home or a brand-new pair of Blahniks will be desperately depressing for any parents dragged along.
October 21, 2011
A dull fantasy-farce of luxe hotel suites, hot guys and product-placement jewellery, a pretty unappetising mix that the film tries to justify at the end with some blather about Romanian orphanages.
October 21, 2011
A comprehensive waste of time and money.
October 20, 2011
Meester especially is a lot better than this.
October 20, 2011
A corny grown-up's vision of teenage wish-fulfilment, like a sexless Sex And The City 2.
October 20, 2011
[A] good-natured but insipid vehicle for tween star Selena Gomez...
October 20, 2011
Clichd and glitzy, it throws its lots in entirely with the romantic ideal of love and Monaco, but has a bubbling spirit and Meester drives a scooter in Grecian sandals impeccably.
October 20, 2011
Gomez, looking every bit the child bride, keeps strutting her actressy ambitions like a pushy diva hogging the dress-up-box.
October 19, 2011
Sluggish, witless and desperately twee.
October 18, 2011
Glossy entertainment for tweens. Avoid if you're over 14.
October 7, 2011
Teen girls who want a vicarious overseas jaunt are advised to follow Emma's lead in one scene of Monte Carlo and watch To Catch a Thief instead.
September 21, 2011
Performances are generally twee, there's not a believable moment in the film -- it's like we're watching children dress up in adult clothes, and that's pretty much how they act.
September 21, 2011
Its excess of spun sugar presents a distinct health hazard.
September 21, 2011
The locations make for enjoyable viewing, but disappointingly this bland teenage drama never transcends its formulaic approach.
July 26, 2011
...rarely as much fun (or as entertaining) as its premise might've led one to expect.
July 8, 2011
Writer/director Bezucha inefficiently draws out this first act. In the process, he encourages expectations of a more earnest, grounded-in-reality picture than the one Monte Carlo morphs into when it hard-turns into mistaken-identity whimsy.
July 8, 2011
Ultimately, it's not hateful or anti-girl and if you happen to be 10 years old and female then you're probably going to love it.
