Did You Know?


In the Genovian Independence Day parade, the announcer introduces the Mertz marching band directed by Lucille Carmichael. These are names from I Love Lucy (1951), which Princess Mia later confesses to Chris Pine's character is a favorite of hers. See more »


In the scenes where Mia is reviewing the troops, there is a shot where Lily and Nicholas introduce themselves across Andrew ("Best friend of the queen-to-be. I don't like you.") In a later, related scene, Nicholas has followed Mia to the tack room. His necktie changes between the two shots. The director says (in the special features part of the DVD) that this was actually a shot taken from another scene: the pear tree scene (which is in the deleted scenes), and put into this scene instead.

A Complete and Total Disappointment
23 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

This movie lacks everything that was good about Princess Diaries 1 - a witty, honestly funny, smart storyline. They realized they could make a lot of money off of this movie, no matter what crap they put out there; this was the result.

I suppose this film has its good moments, which are mostly romantic moments that I enjoyed. But the whole basis of the relationship was preposterous; Mia sure got rid of Michael quickly.

I recommend this movie to little girls 11 or younger and who can't afford a more decent movie. To everyone else, skip it or find yourself rolling your eyes every 5 seconds into this cringe-inducing movie.
