Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average It's a perfect choice for a mother/daughter evening out. And, since it's decently constructed, solidly performed, and not too naïve, even those who are not dominated by estrogen will find a few things to appreciate. I think it works as light entertainment, and young teenage girls will adore what the film has to offer.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average "The Prince & Me" is an efficient, sweet, sometimes charming PG-rated version of the story, ideal for girls of a certain age but perhaps not for everybody else. It has the materials to be a heartwarming mass-market love story, but it doesn't assemble them convincingly.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average The movie offers a healthy dose of female empowerment. But even its pre-teen audience could use a bit more quirkiness and a little less formula. ...the movie is escapist fun. One wishes the screenplay had provided more laughs, fewer extraneous (sexually) suggestive moments and a less predictable ending.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 163 moviegoer opinions. Well, the opinions didn't come in quite as high as I thought they would. There were many negative comments about the strong content for this PG movie and about the story and the acting.
About three-quarters of the movies target audience of teen females rated it very high, which is great, but I expected even more. Twentysomething and adult females rated it nearly as high as the teens. Their opinions were more in the "Very Good" to "Excellent" range while the teen opinions were more in the "Excellent" to "Fantastic" range.
Now for the guys. About half enjoyed it very much rating it "Very Good" or higher, so this isn't just a chick flick. Most of the remaining opinions came in as "Good," which indicates an OK movie.
From these opinions I can recommend "The Prince and Me" to most everyone, but primarily to teen females.
Paige Morgan (Julia Stiles) has her future perfectly mapped out. Working hard toward her goal of becoming a doctor who travels the world to help the underprivileged, the focused University of Wisconsin pre-med student vows nothing will stand
in the way of her career dream. What she never counted on was meeting Eddie (Luke Mably), a disarming stranger who, unbeknownst to her, is actually Edvard Valdemar, the Crown Prince of Denmark!
Reluctant to accept his destiny as the future king, Edvard, a dashing playboy with a penchant for beautiful women and fast cars, has escaped his responsibilities for the greener pastures of midwestern America. There, he changes his name to Eddie, registers for classes at the university.., and falls in love with Paige.
Initially more interested in how Eddie can help her pass Shakespeare than woo her by quoting it, Paige eventually lets down her guard and falls for Eddie too. But as soon as she gives him her heart, she discovers his true identity, and suddenly, Eddie is whisked back to Denmark to attend to his ailing father. Torn between her studies and her newfound love, Paige finally decides her place is by Eddie's side, and before she knows it, she's quickly caught up in a royal whirlwind of lavish galas, gown fittings and photo-ops that would be most any girl's dream come true. But Paige is not "any" girl — she's a girl with her sights set on becoming a doctor, a young woman who has dreams of having it all.. .but can she?
