From the Politics of Demi's nation to the Politics of Selena's high school
With all the hype that the Magic Kingdom has been giving this film over the past several months, I expected something a lot better from the Princess Protection Program. I think most kids even those who look at stars Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez as role models and they're not bad ones either, would find this film just too much.
Selena is the daughter of widower Tom Verica who is the owner of a bait shop in the bayous of Louisiana and also works for the CIA. He just finished a mission where he rescued a princess from a small Caribbean island nation which just had a military coup. Now he's deposited Princess Demi Lovato with his daughter and drawn her into his other life.
Selena's mission and she's got no choice but to accept it is to make Lovato blend in like a normal teen, at least a normal teen in the Disney view. From the politics of Lovato's nation to the politics of Gomez's high school, the two girls get off to a rocky start, but in the end become great pals.
In the pattern of what they do at Disney Studios when they have successful stars from successful shows they always try to mix and match and team these stars in film projects. This was one case where the film idea was so preposterous no matter how appealing these two young women are, they simply couldn't put it over. They're both far better at their Disney shows than in this film.
I mean really, CIA dad gets daughter to help out on one of his missions? I don't think Princess Protection Program would have ever been made if Disney himself was around, though perhaps for different reasons than I didn't like it.
