This is a rip off of Princess Diaries
26 September 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Every time I watch this movie I always think of Princess diaries cause you've got a girl who is a princess she runs away from her country and befriends a girl named Carter(Selena Gomez) and she learns what its like as an ordinary girl. The plot is easy enough to follow but the ending is a bit of a letdown. I saw it on Disney Channel so many times I think it was a nice film suitable for teenagers who are 12 up.

Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez star in this fairytale all about friendship and being royal.

The cast is OK Selena Gomez was alright and Demi Lovato was a real princess.The music is average and the whole story is a bit like Cinderella meets princess diaries in a way.

If you have any one who loves fairy tales and who likes DCOM's then I suggest that you should see it.

I'll give it a 6/10 as it was a decent flick with an OK message.
