In the beginning of the movie, Anne Hathaway flings her bracelet to the palace guard, and he says "It happens all the time," which was an allusion to Julia Roberts' character flinging her escargot to the same actor in Pretty Woman (1990). See more »
In the scene where Paolo is arranging Princess Mia's hair for the wedding, he states that he is Italian, that "all Italian men love babies." In the same scene, just before revealing Mia's last hairstyle, he counts off, "Un, deux, trois." This is French, not Italian, Paolo may be Italian but that does not mean he can't speak french.

I am teenager residing in Arizona and chose to see this movie when I was on my last day of my cold I was having (meaning, for the youth that really are stupid, I was absent from school). Now, this movie was supposed to be aimed to teenagers and pre-teens, preferably girls. I remember seeing the original and I was just curious to see how they would do the sequel (since most movie's with sequels are really bad).
I got in the theater, noticing only a few people here and there (mostly withered old ladies) and checking the rating age. "G". Oh god, not G. No blood, no cuss words, no nothing' that I enjoyed seeing. G movies always have scared me, even when I was a little kid. This struck up my fears of seeing this movie.
I sat in my chair, only to see childish movie advertisements go on the screen. And then it started.
It started...and I wanted to die right there.
The narration voice over just seemed so annoying. They absolutely changed EVERYTHING FROM THE ORIGINAL! Making it cheap. Very cheap. They had those Disney stars like Raven go and be one of the princesses. The jokes were corny, too corny for my tastes. And they used phrases that made me shudder. It was totally unrealistic, it was trying too hard, it just was bad. And then forcing a song into it. I maybe laughed one or two times during that whole movie. Most of the time those laughs were because it was either unrealistic or just down right corny.
It was too Disney-esque. Now let me say this, I'm not the big Disney fan. Most of their films are too predictable and don't have much meaning to some of their films. I could predict almost everything that was going to happen. The klutz jokes were getting old and the movie was too long for my liking, but then out of nowhere. IT ENDED! TIME FOR ANOTHER MOVIE...I guess.
Only that chair in the backrow of the theater, that was reserved for me, will be empty if another movie Princess Diaries comes out.
