User Review

Excellent tween and teen movie!

Rating:


Monte Carlo is a charming movie for tweens and/or teens. Several other
reviewers disliked the movie calling it predictable and boring but I
have to vehemently disagree. If you are looking for a cute, adventurous
movie with NO SWEARING, NO NUDITY, NO SEXUAL SCENES or INNUENDOS, NO
SMOKING, and NO DRUGS then this is the movie for you (and us!)! This
movie reminds me of some of the 1960's Disney movies that were
plot-wise too old for little kids but still 'safe' for the not quite
teenagers.

This is a classic movie about mistaken identity and learning to get
along. The 3 main characters in the movies are all very different
personalities but they grow and learn to accept each other by the end
of the movie. They also have very different 'happy endings' but seeing
how different they are, the characters should end happily-ever-after
differently.

There are some funny moments, some thinking 'would I do that?' moments,
and some 'good for her' moments. You genuinely like each of these
characters (except the mean girl) by the end of the show whether you
liked them at the beginning or not.

This movie is perfect for its target audience of tweens/early teens and
I wish more movies like this were available with today's stars!
