A Princess who bring me some memorable moments. (by hollywood-25)
The Princess Diary talk about a 15-year-old teenager whose name is Mia wants to be invisible at school. One day, on the contrary, she was told to be the Princess of a country, which is very opposite to her former expectation. What a big turning to her life ! What she will undergo ? Mia is my very first and memorable impression about this movie. Anything about her comes from Anne Hathaway's virgin performance. After deeply understand the character-Mia, Anne let Meg's story vivid on the screen. Her acting is natural and every detail show a combination of her own understanding of the <more>
character and the shining of the character itself. I noticed some details about Mia,which is very sophisticated. Mia's school uniform represent the 1950's elegance. The black socks and ties. What a copy of Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's". Mia's smile remind me of another famous actress-Julie Roberts, who has become a mother recently. The beautiful big smile is very eye-catching and also memorable. Oh,I remember another person who also have those big smile. She is Amélie Poulain. The Story is philanthropic and extraordinary.It's not simply a Cinderella story.But, a great story about grandmother and granddaughter, a education-valued story about mother and daughter, a special story about father and daughter,a ever-sweet story about first love, a beautiful story about friendship. Above all, it's a growing story. Based on Meg's classic story The Princess Diary, the motion picture make her characters believe-like in another artistic way. Just like having read Margaret's story Gone With The Wind , you then watch O'Selznick's GWTW movie. Your feeling will be like: I seemed to be a part of the story. Those characters are just and always around you! Clarisse: The Sound of Music is recognized as a movie that is priceless, so, this also recognized the supporting actress's performance is priceless. Julie is an actress that could act well on any characters. The governess,the grandmother or on Broadway, etc. Helen Caroline Goodall played a vital role is Mia's growing period. This daughter and mother is a good role model. Because they show the grand respect for each other. Anyone can't grow without friend, the princess,too. From the friendship with Lilly, Mia knows how to tell the truth, how to apologize and how to deal with something that is uniquely occurred in teenager, which is called Growing Pains. Like other reviewers, I also feel the last sentence Mia told Michael is Soooooooo...... Cool ! :-O "You saw me when I was invisible." Why we feel cool ? Because that's what true love is. And, especially, that's what true love is to a princess !! Joe is a person we can't ignore. He acted as a imitate friend to Mia. He told her what she should be. And he is virtually the bodyguard. Oh, by the way, he is a very very special one ! Some of the songs in The Princess Diary is also memorable." A Summer Song" remind me of those romantic school kisses. The final song "Miracles Happen" is special designed for this movie, for Mia and also for all of us. Now, I am recommending this movie to YOU from my heart.
This is one of the few movies that really made me meditate of my own life, and the invisibility around me. I think that Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews are the coolest grandaughter-grandmother couple I've ever seen - Julie Andrews being such a great actress, and Hathaway being so beautiful. Lame acting for Lana - whoever interprets her - doesn't look like a real spoilt brat - See Freaky Friday's spoilt brats for more. Anyway, cool, great movie with a superb plot - can't wait for part 2. I give it a 10. The love story between the two characters - Mia and Michael was so nice, <more>
and the line "You saw me when I was invisible" was sooooo cool.
I really enjoyed this movie. It was fun to see a fairly clean movie that was fun to watch. The acting of Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway is superb and the story shines out hope. The director takes a very unlikely event and makes it believable, teaching us all something in the process. It was refreshing to see a teen film without all the sexual inuendos and crude language.
It rules! (by movie_fanatic23)
I was surprised to see that the overall voting average for PD was in the 6 range, as so many people I know enjoyed it as much as I did. Anne Hathaway plays the role perfectly, making the awkward Mia extremely likable, as the heroine always should be. Julie Andrews shines like a true royal. The entire supporting cast adds something special to the film. It's quality family fun, and destined to be another Disney classic! 9/10 stars!
A few words from a simple-minded Disney fan (by Hawkslash91)
I'm sure you'll find that as you read this you will discover "a few words" to me means something short of an essay, and "simple-minded" comparative to an analytical computer. Which I will apologize for in advance I know myself too well -_- .The Princess Diaries is bound to be one of Disney's classics. There is no question about that. Many people have submitted such comments as "It wasn't as cheesy as I expected" or "It was much better than I thought." Another prevailing opinion is that the casting of the movie, and the chosen director, <more>
were great. On all of these points I most heartily agree on.Now, the negatives. The strongest opposition to the movie is that it is totally unfaithful to the series by Meg Cabot. Personally, I have never read the series. BUT! Before you sigh and turn away, read the next sentence: I HAVE skimmed through the first book, in my case, "skim" means reading it in a complete random order, although by the end I did manage to read most of the book so I AM aware of the father's inability to...uh...reproduce, Lily's original Russian boyfriend who played the violin, I believe? , the grandmother's not-so-pleasant personality, etc.None of which are portrayed in the movie. Which is a great disappointment to those who are die-hard fans of the series.But. It's only common knowledge that novels remade into movies are always twisted and changed until it only resembles the original storyline. It's usually only the extremely popular or classic books, with worldwide recognition, such as The Da Vinci Code, the Harry Potter series, and The Secret Garden, that are saved from facing total transformation. And even then, most people that I'm acquainted with have confessed the novelized version is always the better.Yes, there are exceptions to what I'm saying. Of course there are. But hear me to the end.Disney, especially, has a tendency to turn everything into a children's fairy tale. Because the entire company is a company devoted to children. Its aim is not to portray a novel the way it is written, but to give a classic happy story to their fans. That is the contract it has forged with its audiences.Take the Disney classics, for example. Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid...they were all based off original fairy tales. But even they were changed completely in Disney's portrayals. Belle Beauty and the Beast originally had two jealous sisters. Aladdin had a mother and an evil uncle. Ariel The Little Mermaid turned into bubbles died in the end. None of these happened in the movies.But we the Disney fans love them. Not because we loved the original fairy tales and loved to see them on screen if that's what you wanted, you would've watched the original French movie Beauty and the Beast , but because we fell in love with the movie itself, the characters the movie gave us, and the story the MOVIE told us.>>The Disney movies stand for themselves. I think that's their strong point. They don't have to rely on what novels or fairy tales they were originally based off of, but they stand as independent films, having EVOLVED from another novel or fairy tale.Everyone's watched Disney films. This should have been expected of the Princess Diaries, too. I'm sure Meg Cabot was aware of Disney's reputation--if she wanted her novel to be copied onto the screen, she would have chosen 20th Century Fox or Warner Bros. That's what J.K. Rowling did. I'M surprised so many people were shocked to find the movie was not like the novel.To be fair, I do admit that Disney HAS, on some occasion, been pretty true to the stories some of the films were based on. Holes, for example, and Chronicles of Narnia. But a storyline like Princess Diaries' couldn't go that way.>>I do think that out of all the movie companies, Disney was the best choice for this movie--the other companies may have been more faithful to the series, but only Disney would have made it a classic.And I am a personal fan of Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway, and they pulled off a great combo in this film, I believe. I also enjoyed watching Mandy Moore in A Walk to Remember, so I had my eyes on her during this movie, too.Everyone's entitled to their opinions, definitely. So while I will never tell anyone off for hating this movie, I will also take the liberty to say that The Princess Diaries, while not Academy Award material, is definitely one of my favorite and heart-warming films.
One of the most romantic Disney movies I have ever seen! (by Catherine_Grace_Zeh)
Even though I've never read the book, THE PRINCESS DIARIES, in my opinion, is one of the most romantic Disney movies I have ever seen. If you ask me, Michael Nyman's score was absolutely romantic. In addition, I thought that the performances were superior, the directing was excellent, the costumes were perfectly designed, and the casting was perfect. Also, when Mia Anne Hathaway got hazed, I felt really sorry for her. You poor thing. When she fell for Josh Erik von Detten , I got all warm and tingly inside. In addition, when Lana Mandy Moore got coned, I felt really good. Kudos <more>
to Garry Marshall and everyone involved for a job well done. Now, in conclusion, if you are a fan of Julie Andrews or Anen Hathaway, or you enjoyed Meg Cabot's title novel, I highly recommend this movie. You're in for a feel good time, so see this movie today. You're in for a good time, so go to the video store, rent it or buy it, kick back with a friend, and watch it.
She rocks. She rules. She reigns. (by Lady_Targaryen)
Mia Thermopolis is a smart but shy girl. She is not from the group of the popular people and also has as an expectation in her life to be invisible. But she doesn't know one important thing: She is the only heir alive to the throne of Genovia! Her father, Philliph was the prince, but he needed to get a divorce of Mia's mother,since she didn't want to have a life full of rules and obligations. Now, Mia is going to have classes with her Grandman, Queen Clarisse Renaldi, to things like history, art until how to sit and band in order to behave as a princess. Paolo also helps in her <more>
looks making Mia become a very beautiful girl.This movie is very lovely, but I never read the books to compare. But I can say that I loved to see Julie Andrews as a Queen, and to see the new and beautiful actress Anne Hathaway in her debut movie!
Wow, I can't see why this film has such a low rating on IMDb (by MartinHafer)
I am a forty-something year-old father and not the sort of person to which this film was targeted. I like foreign films, classic Hollywood and even silent films and am very critical about the horrid quality of the films that have been released over the last thirty years. Because of all this, you would assume that I would hate THE PRINCESS DIARIES--I sure did. But when my oldest daughter insisted we buy this film and watch it together, I was genuinely shocked that I found myself enjoying and being sucked into what is essentially a teen and pre-teen girls' film. Due to terrific writing, <more>
very good acting and a fairy tale-like quality to the film, I was very, very impressed.The movie, by the way, reminded me of a much better retooling of the old Grace Kelly film, THE SWAN. However, unlike THE SWAN, this film was really engaging and sweet.FYI--SPOILER ALERT!!! I have never seen the sequel to THE PRINCESS DIARIES and have no desire to. That's because the fundamental message in the first movie is that you need to be true to yourself and your friends and no matter what the pressures were, the new princess did not forget her friends or nerdy boyfriend. However, the main plot idea of PRINCESS DIARIES II is that she's in search of a prince to marry--what happened to the message and happy ending to PRINCESS DIARIES?!
I hear that a lot of people don't like it, they must be crazy! (by chrisbishop5000)
A very modern, comical follow-up to "My Fair Lady". Lots of reviewers and critics are not happy with what they see in "The Princess Diaries" what I say is "what's wrong with it?". I'll agree that there is hardly any action or violence in it but isn't it about time that movies these days ought to be softened up a bit? "Pirates of the Carabian" and the "Lord of the Rings Trilogy" were successful and they are disturbingly violent and rather grim. This film is very easy-going. The story is simple, Mia Anne Hathaway is a <more>
self-conscious teenager who wants to lead a quiet, happy life but when her abrupt grandmother Julie Andrews travels from Europe to America to tell her that she is a princess of a large country. Mia is totally shocked and her grandmother expects her to be calm and think nothing of it - how harsh is that? Mia's warmhearted mother makes a compromise that she would attend princess-lessons and if she really doesn't want to accept becoming a princess then she doesn't have to. The Queen still isn't impressed but this helps Mia feel better about attending Princess-lessons and reluctantly does so. Being an all-American, rather an affected-by-hormones kind of girl things don't go to plan especially when Mia thinks she has won the affections of a teen-aged boy she is sexually attracted to who goes to her school but she doesn't know that she is being used in order for him to become famous. The Queen is very angry about how much she let the royal family down. Mia tries to explain that she didn't do it deliberately but the Queen won't listen. A few days later the Queen comes to Mia's house and apologises. The night the grand ball takes place for Mia's speech, her heart is telling her that being a princess would be the right thing and so she announces to everyone at the ball that she will be the new princess of the European country. Now hearing the story I've briefly explained, how is that rubbish? It's interesting, fun, romantic, extremely funny, heartwarming and all it has missing is the violent action and horror audiences today expect from a good movie, and to me that is a very good thing. I advise you to give it a go - you might be surprised.
