Audience Reviews for The Princess and the Barrio Boy


It's not very convincing and tends to be shallow. The acting is uneven but not bad. The story is a veryfamiliar one, so it lacks originality. Mildly entertaining.

This movie was a lot better than i expected it to be which was really bad. It has some really fun stuff in it. it is a low quality cheesy light movie but still it was fun.
