Princess Mia Thermopolis (Anne Hathaway) has just turned twenty-one and is supposed to succeed her grandmother as the Queen of Genovia. But Viscount Mabrey (John Rhys-Davies), who wishes that his nephew who is also in line to the throne to be the new ruler, reminds everyone of a law that states that an unmarried woman can't be made Queen, and with the backing of Parliament, he opposes Mia's coronation. Queen Clarisse Renaldi (Dame Julie Andrews) asks that Mia be allowed time to find a husband, and she is given thirty days, but Mabrey tries to do what he can to stop that: his nephew, Nicholas Devereaux (Chris Pine) has met Mia and they are both attracted to each other, but Mia, upon learning who he is, dislikes and doesn't trust him, but Queen Clarisse has invited him to stay with them for the thirty day period to keep an eye on him.Written by
In the beginning scenes, when Princess Mia is explaining what has gone on since the first movie, she says that she and Michael have broken up, and he is now touring with his band. Robert Schwartzman declined to do this movie in order to focus on his band, Rooney, which was touring the country at the time this movie was being made. See more »
When Nicholas kisses Mia his lips are above hers but in the next shot they are lip locked. See more »
Okay so boys may not enjoy it and many dads of young girls will be among few males in the theatre but I thought it was really fun to watch! Also it is nice as the mother of 13 and 10 year girls to be able to take them to a movie without any moments where I cringe - as in many of the PG13 movies they now like to watch (such as 13 going on 30 - it too was very fun to watch but had moments that I would have liked to edit!) My daughters have friends who have very conservative parents and they are not allowed to watch a lot of movies we enjoy, but this one being rated G is acceptable for anyone. Please Hollywood give us more movies for tweens and teens that don't have references to drugs and sex!
