Storyline Heading
The packaged Paris tour that Grace diligently booked begins with dampened expectations, and soon hits rock bottom. But a change is about to blow through in the unlikely form of spoiled British socialite Cordelia Winthrop Scott. After watching Cordelia throw a small tantrum in a grand hotel, where they’ve ducked in out of the rain, the girls are stunned to notice that Grace is a dead ringer for the bratty heiress. With some encouragement (make that insistence) from Emma, Grace decides to attempt to pull off a brazen masquerade.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Adventure Comedy Romantic - This is a comedy aimed at the older pre-teen and teen female audience. Fans of the three female leads, especially Selena Gomez, will be pleased. Cory Monteith fans may be disappointed by his fairly small role. The film is fairly clean viewing for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average 'Monte Carlo' is a harmless, innocuous tween fantasy that seems constructed out of bits and pieces of movies that we must surely have seen before, but can't quite place because there's nothing much to remember.

USA Today Full Review
Average Monte Carlo is all about déjà vu, cobbling together elements from so many other sources it feels like movie stew.

Washington Post Full Review
Average It is ultimately a sweet story, after all, and a few scenes might even make them LOL.

OPINION GRAPH

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

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 63 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:Most of the kids loved "Monte Carlo." A fair number did rate it somewhat low which is unusual for kids. They tend to love the last movie they see.
TEENS:GREAT REVIEWS from the teens! Nearly all of them loved it and the few that didn't still rated it above average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The one male and most of the females rated it very high.
ADULTS:There aren't enough reviews in this age group to be very accurate but it appears that adults really enjoyed "Monte Carlo." About a third loved it and half enjoyed it very much. The rest rated it average so no one disliked it. For this type of movie I would say these are very good reviews. "Monte Carlo" would make a great mother daughter movie date.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Freshly minted high school grad Grace (Selena Gomez) and best friend Emma (Katie Cassidy) are jettisoning their waitress jobs in Texas for a trip to Paris. But Grace's killjoy stepsister Meg (Leighton Meester) is involuntarily installed as chaperone by Grace's mother (Andie MacDowell) and soon-to-be stepfather (Brett Cullen). Meanwhile, Emma's boyfriend, Owen (Cory Monteith), is trying to put the kibosh on the trip altogether with a ring and proposal.

Grace and Emma, however, will not be deterred from crème brulee by the Seine, and soon enough, the two friends, with Megan in tow, arrive in France.

Ah, Paris…the lights...the boulevards...the…

Sorry, no time for that! Scurried past famed landmarks by a hyperactive tour guide, and discouraged by their "luxury” accommodations and frequent tiffs, the trio's spirits sag like the behinds of knit-panted American tourists.

Fortunes change, however, when Grace is mistaken for British socialite Cordelia Winthrop Scott. When the girls inadvertently take possession of Cordelia's invitation to a ritzy charity ball in Monte Carlo, they seize the moment, indeed, the entire week, by ditching their hopeless packaged tour, and heading south. With carte blanche to the socialite's grand suite, clothing and accessories (including a $4 million necklace), they embark on a romantic adventure of yacht parties, polo matches and highly eligible bachelors. But when the necklace goes missing and the real Cordelia unexpectedly arrives, Grace, Emma and Meg have to rely on all their southern charm, wit and bravado to keep their sugarcoated vacation from turning into a full Monte meltdown.
