Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ridiculously contrived, superficial throughout and too sugary, 'Monte Carlo' is still too innocent and convivial to cast too many aspersions on."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"The scenery is pretty, the actresses work hard and it all goes by fairly quickly, if unmemorably."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"It's all frothy and silly, but Selena Gomez and her co-stars are sweet and appealing and are sure to win over the film's target audience."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"Short on wit and invention, the film comes over as Texas's answer to Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"A dull fantasy-farce of luxe hotel suites, hot guys and product-placement jewellery, a pretty unappetising mix that the film tries to justify at the end with some blather about Romanian orphanages."
‑ Anthony Quinn, Independent
"Teen girls who want a vicarious overseas jaunt are advised to follow Emma's lead in one scene of Monte Carlo and watch To Catch a Thief instead."
‑ Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
"Director Thomas Bezucha lingers too long on side plots and doesn't give the film emotional resonance."
‑ Adam Graham, Detroit News
"More gum-popping than jaw-dropping, it's the kind of light entertainment that Elvis used to make."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Harmless enough to a point... but the idea that girls should aspire to little more than acquiring a boyfriend, a home or a brand-new pair of Blahniks will be desperately depressing for any parents dragged along."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"A comprehensive waste of time and money."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"The movie sputs out like fizzled fireworks in the Monte Carlo night."
‑ Greg Quill, Toronto Star
"After Selena Gomez's auspicious big-screen debut in Ramona and Beezus, Monte Carlo feels like two steps back for the Wizards of Waverly Place star."
‑ Nancy Churnin, Dallas Morning News
"So corny that a cereal company could have sponsored it..."
‑ David Aldridge, Radio Times
"Mature viewers will appreciate the rare lack of bad language in what for them will be a reminder of screwball comedies past."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"Meester especially is a lot better than this."
‑ Alex Zane, Sun Online
