Trivia

It seems unusual, but "Meg" seems to be a nickname derived from the middle name of the character. Her full name, seen in the passport on her arrival in France, is Mary Margaret Kelly. See more »

Goofs

The airport stamps that Emma, Meg, Grace and Owen received upon arrival are country exit stamps. The arrow on the stamp should have been pointing to the right upon arrival into a country, not left. See more »

Wanted it to be good - it wasn't
20 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie should have been good I was so looking forward to it. They had an attractive cast and beautiful locations. How could they go wrong? It's pretty bad. The premise is familiar but still usually works

  • 3 American girls go to Europe and fall into mischief and romance. The
problem is there is very little romance and very little humor. The screenplay is badly written without amusing situations or a build up of romance. The dialog is not witty or charming. Hardly any laughs. The directing is bad and choppy. Scenes just seem to jump from one to another abruptly. Leighton Meester is a good actress on Gossip Girl but here she seems to have just limited expressions. Katie Cassidy is slightly miscast a bit too together looking to be what she plays. The casting is strange. Selena Gomez looking like a British heiress? Not only does she not look the part her accent and acting in her 2 characters are not different enough. The male leads Cory Monteith who is a bit of a limited actor usually and Pierre Boulanger don't have much to work with. Only saving grace the locations and scenery are spectacular and it has a very on location feel. Overall: See if it you are a die hard fan of one or more of them but prepared to be disappointed.
