Movie Info

A poor boy who spends most his spare time playing stickball in the streets suddenly finds himself returning volleys to his butler in this contemporary take on the classic Mark Twain tale starring Cole and Dylan Sprouse. Running away to the east side in his chauffer-driven limousine, thirteen year old Matthew hatches an ingenious identity-switch scheme after running into his spitting image - a fun-loving inner city youth named Jeff. Intent on making his mother pay for a series of minor infractions he may have been responsible for while studying at an ultra-posh boy's academy, Matthew sends Jeff to live with his self-made millionaire mother as he prepares to spend Spring Break with his new stepfather and two stepsisters. While Jeff is dumbfounded to discover that stores actually sell clothes that have never been worn before, Matthew is thrilled to take the field for his first rain-soaked baseball game. Yet despite the fun these two kids have on the opposite side of the social spectrum, they quickly learn that life just isn't the same when you can't go home to your true loved ones.

Audience Reviews for The Prince and the Pauper

Did we really need another retelling of the Mark Twain classic? Appartantly so. This film was really bad in both performances and it failed to enthrall me.

I had the honor of watching this twice while substitute teaching today. Really just a terrible film, the kids didn't seem too crazy about it either.

It was a good movie. Not at all like the book in on many levels - But, I will say it was funny, cute, the names were inventive in Edward's case and true in Tom's, & I think we still got some of the main points of the book. It was not a word for word remake or full of blood and sorrow, it was just good, clean fun, and I like that a lot. SPOILER:I like the Miles from the book, but at least this guy looks like the Miles in my mind.
