The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement [WS] [DVD] [2004]

  • SKU: 6881225
  • Release Date: 12/14/2004
  • Rating: G
Directed by Garry Marshall, The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement picks up where its predecessor left off -- that is, with American teenager Mia Thermopolis (Anne Hathaway) reeling over the news that she is a princess within the royal family of Genovia, a little-known European nation with a population of barely 50,000. As promised, Mia, along with her best friend, Lily (Heather Matarazzo), travels to Genovia after their high-school graduation. The unlikely princess has hardly settled into the castle, let alone begun representing the country, when she learns that a larger title is approaching more rapidly than expected; it seems as though Mia will have to take over as queen. Suddenly, in addition to further schooling on the etiquette of royalty, Mia finds herself with a daunting prospect -- according to Genovian law, all princesses must be married before they can be crowned. In addition to Julie Andrews' reprisal of her role as Queen Clarisse Renaldi, The Princess Diaries 2 also features Hector Elizondo and John Rhys-Davies in supporting roles. Though Princess Diaries author Meg Cabot did pen a sequel (The Princess Diaries: Princess in the Spotlight), this film is not an adaptation.

    Cute but flawed film

    I enjoy both of the films. I 1st watched them simply to see Julie's performance. The film is cute but flawed, NOT near perfect. Some scenes work, others drive you crazy on how cheesy they are. After the surgery that hurt Julie' ability to sing the chance to see her sing in the film DISNEY HAD TO RUIN TO ADD THAT RAVEN GIRL IN THE SONG JUST BECAUSE SHE HAD A SHOW ON THE DISNEY CHANNEL AT THE TIME. JULIE SHOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN A SONG SHE COULD DO ON HER OWN. Do we need to point out Julie's Disney history? Her 1st film "Mary Poppins" won her the Oscar. The soundtrack won an Oscar & Julie sang several memorable songs. Did Disney forget this? I did NOT like Larry Miller's character in either film Hector Elizondo was good as Joe in both films Good, not outstanding, extras on the DVD. Songs in the film did NOTHING for me.

    This is an okay movie, but definately a disappointment after the first Princess Diaries. It's not as funny or original. Also Mia (Anne Hathaway) isn't as much of a "good girl" as we'd all hope she'd be. Her decisions frustrated me therefore making the movie less enjoyable. I'd say if you have nothing better to watch, this is an okay movie to pass the time.

    As a huge fan of The Princess Diaries books and the first movie, I honestly thought this movie would not be as good. The second time around, The Princess Diaries is just as pleasing and a complete joy to watch.

    It was the best movie ever, it started off with slow however it picked up later on. Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway and the rest of the cast was breath of fresh air to see on the tv screen.

    It is nice to see the cast back for the sequel but they do not have that much to work with here. It is still a good family film.

    A movie that parallels real life and wishful life

    Shows the reality of people's greed for power and people's ability to over come obstacles.
