Monte Carlo (2011)

DIRECTOR: Thomas Bezucha; CAST: Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester, Katie Cassidy…

SUMMARY (from IMDB): Three young women vacationing in Paris find themselves whisked away to Monte Carlo after one of the girls is mistaken for a British heiress.


This is a typical comedy of mistaken identity with predictable complications. It is a good film to give your mind a rest, but not much more.

Naturally, there are some beautiful scenic views of both Paris and Monte Carlo. The dresses are pretty, the romance is sweet, the secrets are revealed, the bad get punished, the good are rewarded, and the love wins.

On the whole, this is a nice, undemanding film to relax with. And yes, there are some laughable moments.

RECOMMENDATION: This is a family-friendly relaxation film. Don't expect to blow your midn off, but if you need a distraction after a difficult day Monte Carlo might just do the trick.
