Teen queen Lizzie McGuire grows up a bit and hits the big screen in this comedy drama, based on the popular Disney Network series. Lizzie McGuire and her best friends Kate, Gordo, and Ethan have just graduated from middle school, and to celebrate, they're taking part in a class trip to Rome, Italy. Eager to celebrate their new maturity as high school students, Lizzie and her pals hope to live it up in one of Europe's most fabled cities, but fate has something more spectacular in store for Lizzie. Lizzie discovers that she bears a striking resemblance to Isabella, an Italian teen-pop idol famous for her duets with heart-throb Paolo -- so much so that when Paolo and Isabella have a falling out, he asks Lizzie to take Isabella's place for an upcoming concert. Lizzie, however, isn't sure she feels comfortable stepping into the spotlight, and is even less sure about the way she feels about Paolo, who makes no secret of his infatuation with her. Things don't get any simpler for Lizzie when ... Written by
When Paolo and Lizzie go to Franca's place to choose a dress, Lizzie tries on a dress that has a magazine cover for a hat. The magazine is the edition that Gordo has just seen the two girls reading with Lizzie on the cover. But when he shows Lizzie the magazine when she gets back to the hotel, she looks astounded that she is on the front cover of a magazine, but wouldn't she have already seen it (when she was at Franca's) before Gordo shows it to her?

I rented this movie instead of seeing it in the theaters, because I expected a simple little teen romance film. It has romance, but it had a surprisingly better story than I expected. I actually, went back and watched the final sequences over again. The movie appears a straight forward and pleasant film until just before the end when you get hit by a very unexpected twist. I'm old enough to play Lizzie's dad and yet throughly enjoyed this film, it's not just a teen date film.
