Princess Mia has just turned 21 and is supposed to succeed her grandmother as the Queen of Genovia. But Viscount Mabrey 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 Clarice asks that Mia be allowed time to find a husband, and she is given 30 days, but Mabrey tries to do what he can to stop that: his nephew, Nicholas 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 Clarice has invited him to stay with them for the 30 day period to keep an eye on him.

Trivia

The jewelry used by Mia and the Queen is all real. A guard was on-set the whole time. The most expensive piece is the necklace the Queen is wearing at the wedding. See more »

Goofs

At Mia's slumber party during the singing, Mia is sitting on a chair that is festooned with lace and other bridal type stuff in the front side shots. In the behind shots the chair is plain. It should be showing at the back because of the way the piece of lace especially is draped over the chair. See more »

The corniness has tainted me!
15 September 2004 | by maggiemehveSee all my reviews

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.
