Washington Post
Nothing is new about the movie's premise, but it is entertaining all the same.

ReelViews
It's a perfect choice for a mother/daughter evening out...decently constructed, solidly performed, and not too naïve.

Dallas Observer
Trashes whatever spirited fun it initially established. Goodnight, Sweet Prince. Dream on.
58
Entertainment Weekly
In a series of endings, she, and the audience, are falsely promised that she can have it all. In other words, The Prince & Me is committed to the controversial American policy of No Fantasy Left Behind.

L.A. Weekly
To no one's possible satisfaction -- the non-question of how Paige is to ascend to the throne and retain her personal integrity that The Prince and Me falls, finally and irrevocably, flat.
40
The Hollywood Reporter
An unremarkable romantic comedy that gives short shrift to both romance and comedy.

Variety
Totally cliched and nearly two hours long, pic takes forever to get to hopelessly obvious places.
38
Chicago Tribune
It's one of those movies where talented filmmakers waste time with stale, phony material.
30
The A.V. Club
Few actresses exude restless intelligence as effortlessly as Stiles, which is fortunate, since Martha Coolidge's film relies on that forceful charisma to make it past awful dialogue, contrived situations, and hokey use of Disney-style butterflies.
30
Even the teens at whom this plodding and predictable romantic comedy is clearly aimed are unlikely to be swept away by its contrivances.
