Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Very Good "..a girl's wish that someday someone will acknowledge her essential regal female self is a powerful fact. And this charming, if unnecessarily coronation-length production gets the duckling-to-swan ambivalence just right.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Below Average "The Princess Diaries is okay entertainment only for the target demographic (girls age 8 through 13). Everyone else will either fall asleep, run screaming from the theater, or go into sugar shock.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Below Average "As "The Princess Diaries" creeps from one painfully obvious plot destination to another, we wait impatiently for the characters onscreen to arrive at what has long been clear to the audience. If the movie is determined to be this dimwitted, couldn't it at least move a little more quickly? The metronome is set too slow, as if everyone is acting and thinking in half-time.''

USA TODAY    Full Review
Good "The Princess Diaries isn't always perfect. But it fills an empty spot in the hearts of girls of all ages who have been pining all summer for a movie like this.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Absolutely outstanding moviegoer opinions! EVERYONE indicated that they would recommend this movie to their friends. That's the first time I've seen that, and I've collected tens-of-thousands of opinions.

As usual, the average moviegoer can't base their movie selection on what the critics say. Most critics didn't care for this movie. Moviegoers LOVED IT! These are some very high opinions, especially for you ladies, (as I predicted below :-). It's unusual for a movie to have so many very high opinions and so few low opinions. This indicates a movie with VERY WIDE APPEAL. Almost everyone should enjoy this movie.

There were very few younger male opinions, so they won't be too accurate, but the ones we collected were high. I feel most young males will enjoy this movie, so girls, tell your boyfriend to take you to see "Princess Diaries"!

Adult males also enjoyed this movie, giving it quite high marks. Almost all of them said they would recommend it to friends. Even those that rated it as low as "Good/Avg." made positive comments about it.

This is as close to a perfect movie as you will find. I don't say that because it's that great a movie, but because it's a movie EVERYONE will enjoy!

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
THIS IS A GREAT LITTLE COMEDY! I would highly recommend it to families! Obviously young girls will LOVE IT, but I believe it will have a much wider appeal. Sure it's almost too sweet and sappy in a few scenes, but it's also very funny and touching. I believe it will receive some very high opinions.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Shy San Francisco teenager Mia Thermopolis (ANNE HATHAWAY) is thrown for a loop when, from out of the blue, she learns the astonishing news that she's a real-life princess! As the heir apparent to the crown of the small European principality of Genovia, Mia begins a comical journey toward the throne when her strict and formidable grandmother, Queen Clarisse Renaldi (JULIE ANDREWS), shows up to give her "princess lessons." The two instantly clash—Mia has no intention of leaving her normal life to become the ruler of a far-off country, while her grandmother insists it is her duty. Clarisse is determined to do a complete makeover of this sparkling -- if not polished -- diamond in the rough in order that she take her rightful place in the royal line of succession. Now, the reluctant princess must make the biggest decision of her life—whether to remain with her family and explore a budding romance with her best friend's brother Michael (ROBERT SCHWARTZMAN)—or to leave everything behind to accept the royal responsibilities that come with being the Princess of Genovia.
