Lord Crawley and his identical twin brother (who don't get along) tersely acknowledge each other by their first names, Jerry and Dean. This is a reference to Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, who were the most successful comedy team of the 1950s, yet were known to have had several heated arguments late in their joint career. They finally split up amidst a great deal of bitterness in 1956, and didn't speak to each other for twenty years. See more »
In the beginning of the movie (at about 00:01:49) the princess is leafing through her diaries. On one page you can see a 20 EURO bill taped to the paper. It's a counterfeited bill, or better a kind of fantasy-bill, composed of parts of the real bill. See more »
Princess Diaries 2 has it's moments, but over all is a pretty lame film
I just recently viewed The Princess Diaries and over all liked it pretty much, so I figured I would see the sequel. I rented it yesterday and watched it this morning and it seemed to me like it was the same plot as before only with a couple different elements. The film also felt very rushed in some aspects, some of the plots or characters that took place seemed to come and go. Although I'm still not sure since I haven't read the books, but the movie itself was just predictable and a bit too silly at times, it just seemed like it could insult the audience it was aimed at.
Mia has graduated college and is off to Genovia to become queen and her grandmother, Clarrise is about to give up her title. But Genovia law is that before Mia is to become queen she must marry someone. She is falling for a young man, Nicolas, but he is also up for the throne as king, so his uncle is trying to set Mia up where she will loose her crown before she could even have it. Mia has to decide wither to go with her heart and let herself love Nicolas or have her duty for her country and marry for Genovia.
The Princess Diaries 2 has some cute and funny moments, I won't lie, I did laugh a little bit, but over all I have to say that it just could have been more, you know? The actors didn't seem to click as well as they did in the first film. Not to mention how quickly the character Michael went away and Lily just was there for 5 minutes to make like a semi quick cameo and just be out of the story. If you want too, feel free to watch this movie, it's harmless, but it's not a great movie if you're looking for one.
