Teen queen Lizzie McGuire grows up a bit and hits the big screen in this comedy drama, based on the popular Disney Network series. Lizzie McGuire and her best friends Kate, Gordo, and Ethan have just graduated from middle school, and to celebrate, they're taking part in a class trip to Rome, Italy. Eager to celebrate their new maturity as high school students, Lizzie and her pals hope to live it up in one of Europe's most fabled cities, but fate has something more spectacular in store for Lizzie. Lizzie discovers that she bears a striking resemblance to Isabella, an Italian teen-pop idol famous for her duets with heart-throb Paolo — so much so that when Paolo and Isabella have a falling out, he asks Lizzie to take Isabella's place for an upcoming concert. Lizzie, however, isn't sure she feels comfortable stepping into the spotlight, and is even less sure about the way she feels about Paolo…

Goodbye Lizzie McGuire, hello fabulous.
A good ending to the Lizzie TV Series
My girls are 8 and 5, are fans of the Lizzie TV show, and they love
this movie. It's funny, exciting, inspiring and sweet. I don't know how
many times I've had to rewind the last music scene for them to watch
and dance to. The soundtrack is very good with a large variety of
artists and music styles. This is one "kid" movie I enjoy watching even
though I've already seen it again and again. Hilary Duff is very
convincing in this roll, and the rest of the cast do a great job, esp.
"Miss Ungermyer" and "Matt" are very funny. This is a great ending to
the Lizzie TV Series. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes
the "Lizzie" series, young girls from five to fifteen and anyone else
not too "cool" to watch a fun lighthearted movie. Great "pajama party"
