Monte Carlo (2011)
Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Family Film, Romance
Monte Carlo is one of those teen romance movies that you might watch with your friends when you are in the mood for a light hearted chick flick. The story is very simple to follow, there are not any big surprises waiting in the narrative and it ends as expected 😛 . Though, it does have a very warming and happy feeling throughout that keeps you entertained. It ends pleasantly and fitting enough for the film 🙂 . The main actresses (Selena Gomez, Katie Cassidy and Leighton Meester) act okay enough for the roles of the narrative but I can’t say the film shows the best acting I have ever seen. Though, don’t get me wrong, I don’t think they are to blame as I think it has something to do with the average and typical narrative plus the film in general. The scenery is great and the whole fairytale aspect is good 🙂 . At times it did make me smile and I was most intrigued during the “almost found out” section near the “climax” of the movie. I also loved the growing romances though some could have been focused on more but at the ending one couple finished wonderfully 🙂 . I also wished they had made the distinction between Grace and Cordelia Winthrop Scott clearer, so the humour of Grace trying to imitate could have been funnier. Overall, an alright movie that I surprisingly liked but can’t deny this isn’t the greatest in romantic comedy genre movies. Good for a girly night in or for younger teens 🙂 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 2.5 Stars out of 5!
