Couch Potato: The Princess Diaries (2001)Monday, March 11, 2013
WATCHED: August 23, 2010
A socially awkward but very bright 15-year-old girl being raised by a single mom discovers that she is the princess of a small European country because of the recent death of her long-absent father, who, unknown to her, was the crown prince of Genovia. She must make a choice between continuing the life of a San Francisco teen or stepping up to the throne. While Mia makes up her mind, she’s pressed into taking princess lessons from her grandmother.— FROM imdb.com
It will always be one of my favorite chick flicks (and book series). I enjoyed everything, from Mia's awkward, ugly duckling phase to her wonderful transformation as a princess. It was refreshing to see Julie Andrews as she is one of my favorites as well and Anne Hathaway was in bloom. It was definitely a great start for her. Despite some differences, I still love how the movie and the book still has similarities, from the humor, drama to all the princess things we all want and wish to happen to us. It was a magical experience to an aspiring princess like me (LOL) and to other princesses (true or wannabes) all over the world.
And because I can never get enough of it, here's the trailer:
I will rate it 5 out of 5 stars since it is my favorite.
