Your basic Cinderella makeover story with a fresh and affectionate twist. Mia is a frizzy-haired, glasses-wearing 15-year-old girl whose two highest ambitions are to become invisible and to get a few kisses from an attractive school heartthrob. She is stunned and horrified when her coolly continental grandmother shows up and informs her that she's the crown princess of the European principality Genovia.

The Princess Diaries is such a good movie that is perfect for teens. It follows the story of Mia Thermopolis, a 15 year old girl who already thought life was hard enough being a quirky teenager and all, when all of a sudden she receives the shocking news that she’s a princess and soon-to-be queen of a country called Genovia. This film is super funny, cute, romantic, and dramatic. It features stars such as Anne Hathaway, Mandy Moore, and Julie Andrews. I would totally recommend it and rate it 4/5 stars.

A favorite guilty pleasure movie of mine. Not entirely accurate to the book, but it certainly captures the spirit of it.

A fun movie that embodies every female's fantasy. One of my favourite fairytale movies.

A good coming-of-age story about learning who you are, and who your real friends are.

I loved the part where the hairdresser guy came in and she was like totally transformed. By the way, in the beginning of the movie she reminded me of Harry Potter SO much! LOL But the movie overall was great.

" Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear. "
