A bland, fluffy, and predictable bit of wish fulfillment.

Paige eventually comes to a self-affirming decision, but the Danish interlude succeeds too well in making us feel her boredom.
... thumbs down for me ...
Nothing is new about the movie's premise, but it is entertaining all the same.
Bland and immediately disposable.
Even its pre-teen audience could use a bit more quirkiness and a little less formula.
The sound you hear is the death rattle of the women's movement.
Good acting saves unoriginal Cinderella story.
...generally remains a cut above the majority of its contemporary romcom brethren - with the dreaded fake break-up handled particularly well (the second fake break-up is kind of pushing it, though).
A Royal Letdown.
the script and Martha Coolidge direction are so play-it-safe formulaic that the film lacks fairy-tale luster. It's as predictable as an Elvis movie-without the music.
As pleasing as The Prince & Me can be, director Martha Coolidge's film delivers nothing to advance the genre.
This attempt at a modern-day Cinderella story is about as PC as a Career Girl Barbie and disappoints due to poor structure, flimsy characterisation and insufficient wit to distract from the above.
Romantic comedies don't need to always be about two well-rounded people, because, let's face it; the allure of these films is to escape into a world where we are the adoration of attractive men with quirks. Still, even without fully developed characters we want an interesting concept, or at least a McGuffin to further along the plot. "The Prince and Me" tries to cash in on the childlike dream of becoming a princess, while also following the trend of empowered woman taking down roguish playboys. Sadly the woman in question quickly loses her inhibitions and stops caring about her lifelong dream of becoming a doctor and saving the world, all for the benefit of some dude she's known for four months. As unbelievable as that all sounds, it's also strange that the prince is supposedly Danish and yet speaks with an English accent, as do all the other Danes shown throughout the film. I also take issue with the depiction of Wisconsin as a Podunk state where everyone is inclined to work on farms, as someone who lives in a urban city in the aforementioned state. You can't escape into the trappings of the genre because everything about this film is formulaic, cheap, and thoughtless, which says nothing about the lack of chemistry between the two leads.
The best was this one. The rest are horrible and missing Julia Stiles big time.
I just didn't get it. Not princessy enough for me (barely any scenes in the royal palace!), but not high school enough either. It's just a lot of Julia Stiles rehashing 10 Things I Hate About You and that other dude not being as charming as Heath Ledger.
