Making it through high school without throwing up is a challenge in itself for Mia, so it doesn't come as welcome news when her estranged grandmother shows up out of the blue and calmly informs her that she is in fact the heir to the throne of a European country called Genovia. Suddenly Mia's life is thrown into complete overload.

Things get out of hand when the media gets a hold of the story and suddenly Mia is thrust into the spotlight in both the newspapers and in school. On top of all that Mia has a choice to make.

Loved it.
6 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

I think the Princess Diaries was one of the best Disney movies I've seen. Anne Hathaway has it all! She's pretty,smart, and funny! I loved the comedy in the movie and the story was good too. It had some scenes with feeling, I love movies like that. I know Anne will never read this but if she ever does....You're doing a wonderful job and doing what you love and don't let anyone tell you different.
