IMDb Plot Synopsis: Mia Thermopolis is the average teenager - sweet, a little geeky and pretty much invisible to everyone with the exception of her mother, best friend Lilly and Lilly's older brother Michael. Making it through high school without throwing up is a challenge in itself for Mia, so it doesn't come as welcome news when her estranged grandmother shows up out of the blue and calmly informs her that she is in fact the heir to the throne of a European country called Genovia. Suddenly Mia's life is thrown into complete overload. She's being taught about scarves, waves and pears in order to become a perfect princess, she gets a makeover and a tough looking yet sweet bodyguard/limo driver called Joe. Things get out of hand when the media gets a hold of the story and suddenly Mia is thrust into the spotlight in both the newspapers and in school. On top of all that Mia has a choice to make...

A Quick Review: Princess Diaries is my ultimate childhood film and it brings back so many memories that it’s hard to review this objectively! Somehow, coming back to this almost 10 years later, I knew it off by heart still - I completely wore out my VHS copy!
All I can tell you is that, while it has its cheesy moments, Princess Diaries is a funny, romantic, feel-good film. I love it!
Score: 8.5/10
