More Info:
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    This charming, if unnecessarily coronation-length production gets the duckling-to-swan ambivalence just right.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    This stylish Disney production is an ideal family film.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Loren King

    Manages to wring some originality out of its fairy-tale plot. This freshness compensates for the expected hackneyed qualities in this Cinderella tale.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Entertaining and pleasing for children and parents, and not in the schizophrenic way of most kid's movies, which toss naughty in-jokes over the kiddies' heads.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    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.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Chris Hewitt

    It's such a delightful, amusing fairy tale that it leaves you wanting more.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • William Arnold

    A rarity: A fun, entertaining 'G' movie.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Ed Park

    A modest, enjoyable fairy tale that easily outcharms its animated stablemates of the past decade.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Fitfully amusing comedy from director and one-time sitcom king Garry Marshall, the fantasy is alive and well among little girls of all ages.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    A mixed bag with a huge amount of heart.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Fluffy, candy-colored and aimed directly at tweens -- girls between the ages of 10 and 12.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Hazel-Dawn Dumpert

    The director is Garry Marshall, but The Princess Diaries is no where near as nauseating a fairy tale as Marshall's "Pretty Woman."

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    This innocuous, frothy fairy tale isn't so off-putting as you might imagine, thanks in large part to Andrews' ageless charm.

    New Times (L.A.) Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Goes on much too long, stretching a modest story into a marathon that outlasts its welcome by about 30 minutes.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Christine Dolen

    If Andrews oozes regal poise and Hathaway radiates movie star allure -- and they do -- credit the actresses, not this flimsy fairy tale.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    Prepubescent girls might get a few safe giggles while others around them are yawning.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Occasionally funny but more often hackneyed, schmaltzy, predictable and overdone fairy tale that seems longer than 100 choruses of ''Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."

    New York Post Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    The extent to which The Princess Diaries succeeds is the result of how pretty Hathaway at first mimics, then internalizes, Andrews' essential majesty.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    This is "Pretty Woman" for children.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Robert Koehler

    Exudes a pre-fab quality.

    Variety Full Review
  • Rita Kempley

    The movie updates Disney's blueprint without altering it in any meaningful way.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Marrit Ingman

    Critic-proof moviemaking, a candy pink wish-fulfillment fantasy prominently peppered with pubescent pop platters.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    A march through the swamp of recycled ugly duckling stories, with occasional pauses in the marsh of sitcom cliches and the bog of Idiot Plots.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    Trite transformation comedy.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Such weak medicine. Sure enough, it goes down. Keeping it down is another matter. Full Review
  • Kevin Maynard

    Families already know exactly what they're in for, and they're likely to leave the multiplex high on the hum of a charming cast, sunny San Francisco locations, and a suitably happy ending.
