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.

Lord Crawley and his identical twin brother (who don't get along) tersely acknowledge each other by their first names, Jerry and Dean. This is a reference to Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, who were the most successful comedy team of the 1950s, yet were known to have had several heated arguments late in their joint career. They finally split up amidst a great deal of bitterness in 1956, and didn't speak to each other for twenty years. See more »
When Mia is practicing The flaming arrow bit the ring target was about 3 or 4 foot off the ground at most but when Mia does it for real at her coronation the ring is more then 30 feet off the ground. See more »
Disney have proved yet again why they are a head and shoulders above the competition when it comes to producing movies that aren't admittedly brain food, but are "good clean fun", (if you'll forgive the cliché), for kids. For every little girl who ever dreamed of becoming a princess, this film is the perfect way to spend two hours.
True, it was grossly unfaithful to Meg Cabot's original novels, but still managed to convey the charm and slick veneer that has come to be associated with Disney, and the valuable message of independence for little princesses everywhere.
For the more mature audience, this is a happy chance to revisit childhood, or simply breathe a sigh of relief that what your child is watching is not in any way compromising or damaging, and will not have to be explained later.
Good message. Solid performances. Sweet (if bland and predictable at times) story line. Great movie!
Highly recommended for two hours of escapism on a summer's afternoon.
