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.

More gum-popping than jaw-dropping, it's the kind of light entertainment that Elvis used to make.

So corny that a cereal company could have sponsored it...

Short on wit and invention, the film comes over as Texas's answer to Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris.

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.

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

Anthony Quinn
Independent (UK)
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.

A comprehensive waste of time and money.

Meester especially is a lot better than this.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail (UK)
October 20, 2011
A corny grown-up's vision of teenage wish-fulfilment, like a sexless Sex And The City 2.

[A] good-natured but insipid vehicle for tween star Selena Gomez...

Clichéd 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.

Gomez, looking every bit the child bride, keeps strutting her actressy ambitions like a pushy diva hogging the dress-up-box.

Trashily enjoyable thanks to some expertly assembled clichés, 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.

Sluggish, witless and desperately twee.

Glossy entertainment for tweens. Avoid if you're over 14.

Ridiculously contrived, superficial throughout and too sugary, 'Monte Carlo' is still too innocent and convivial to cast too many aspersions on.

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.

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