Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: Offers enough glossy good cheer to appeal to everyone.

- Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle, Wednesday, August 11, 2004

Rotten: It's an 8-year-old girl's fantasy of adulthood, right down to the purple-and-scarlet uniforms worn by the Genovian National Guard.

- Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer, Wednesday, August 11, 2004

Rotten: We all love a good fairy tale, but the enchantment is missing in this predictable sequel.

In the Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, Mia turns 21, and is preparing to take over her grandmother's position as queen of Genovia. When she arrives, she is surprised to find out that unless she gets married within the next 30 days, she is not fit to be queen. There is also a conspiracy against her carried on by a member of parliament (John Rhys-Davies) who wants his obnoxious nephew (Chris Pine) to become the future king of Genovia. Together with the Queen, Mia finds the perfect candidate for her arranged marriage, he's handsome and diplomatic and honest but there is no spark. To complicate matters, Mia ends up falling for the nephew. Will She or he abdicate for love in the end ...or will she oblige to a 'duty' marriage in order to save the throne?? The first one was really good. It was pretty funny, witty, entertaining, and put a smile on my face but although this one had its moments, it offers nothing new.
