I think the Princess Diaries was one of the best Disney movies I've seen. Anne Hathaway has it all! She's pretty,smart, and funny! I loved the comedy in the movie and the story was good too. It had some scenes with feeling, I love movies like that. I know Anne will never read this but if she ever does....You're doing a wonderful job and doing what you love and don't let anyone tell you different.
