Storyline

A young woman, her uptight step sister and her best friend use their savings for a long anticipated dream trip to Paris, which turns out to be a big disappointment.

Before they get the chance to reveal their true identities they are wrapped up in misadventures during a vacation to Monte Carlo instead. Written by Fox 2000 Pictures

User Reviews

The adhesion of the main characters pays off for a great ending
1 July 2011 | by ThreeTwoOneActionSee all my reviews

The movie holds your attention because you're curious. A few zig-zags complicate a trip to Paris. Confusion turns to mischief. Can an awkward Texas girl (Selena Gomez) fool the social elite and find love along the way? The relationship between three young ladies who long to see the City of Love becomes the nucleus for a bizarre stay at hotel romp. Turn the light switch off and on and suddenly an English sophisticate (Selena Gomez) gets put on hold while Texas Gomez fills her shoes. This wouldn't be so extraordinary except that everyone buys it... Small town Texan fools the french elite into thinking she is one Cordelia Winthrop Scott. Sooner or later you know she's gonna get found out but by then it's just a matter of working around a few Monte Carlo authorities... Selena had no trouble playing polar opposites in this movie. Her previous acting career opened the door.
