      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews bring charm and elegance to the movie, but there's not enough material for them to work with in this sequel.

      Eye C It's ok, childish at moments, but I know that is what is meant to be… good ending. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/24 Full Review Meydiana R A disappointing and boring sequel The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement is an unneeded sequel and for adults the movie isn't very good. Mia {Anne Hathaway}, the new princess of Genovia, is ready to assume her role when she learns she may have to become queen even sooner than expected. The catch: she must get married first. With the help of her grandmother {Julie Andrews}, they begin to weed through possible candidates. I think the plot was a little weak and of course the film is predictable. The first one had a lot more charm but this sequel is rather boring. Sometimes the film is charming and that's due to its likable cast. Anne Hathaway does a great job but she can't save the film. Julie Andrews does a good job as well but her singing return was a little disappointing. Heather Matarazzo, Raven ,Larry Miller and Caroline Goodall all have small roles and they do a decent job but I think they could have left out Ravens character. Garry Marshall returns to direct and while he does a better job with this film then Raising Helen, he still could have tried harder with this one. The movie is very unrealistic as well but its a kids movie and it has a fairy tale story so it doesn't try to be realistic. There are a lot of cheesy scenes like the slumber party and most of these scenes are just not funny or enjoyable. I actually enjoyed the first one but this one was just long and not very interesting. The film is 113 minutes long but they don't have a lot of interesting material to fill the running time. The kids I saw it with didn't like it that much either also most of the funny lines are used in the trailer so it doesn't extend much past that. Rating 9/10, skip this sequel and go watch Ella Enchanted it's a lot more enjoyable.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/27/23 Full Review cato k Not as good as the first one but definitly worth to watch Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/15/23 Full Review Sadie D Fast paced but iconic. So many good scenes. Love Anne Hathaway as Princess Mia and the plot. Loved how the second movie took us to Genovia and seeing Mia in her final steps to become queen. Romantic, girly, fairy-tale like, while still chic, modern, and 2000's-esque. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/21/22 Full Review Frida Monserrat R I may start saying that is a hilarious love story about a princess who needs to get married in order to become a queen, the princess (Anne Hathaway) is faced with the pressure of finding the perfect husband but what she doesn't know is that she'll find love in someone who she hates. It is a very light movie, the story develops slowly but it does not feel like it. Between jokes, funny escenes and spontaneity you'll feel happy and captivated by how the characters and story evolve.

      Nell Minow Common Sense Media A fun romp for girls of all ages. Rated: 4/5 Dec 28, 2010 Full Review Empire Magazine Rated: 3/5 Apr 1, 2006 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com I'd like to, but than that would be lying, and if I've ever learned anything from Disney it is that lying is wrong. Rated: 1.5/4 Dec 13, 2005 Full Review Micheal Compton Bowling Green Daily News A braindead film that sucks the life out its audience with its annoyingly overbearing screenplay. Nov 16, 2019 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens A fairytale, once-upon-a-time. . .this movie is for the princess in all of us. Nov 14, 2019 Full Review Deborah Hornblow Hartford Courant The pace of ``Diaries 2'' is not always as crisp as some of Marshall's other films, but it is an amiable enough entertainment.
