Consensus: Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews bring charm and elegance to the movie, but there's not enough material for them to work with in this sequel.

Village Voice

Scenes end abruptly, laughs are as rare as yetis, and the overarching question seems to be: Can we turn this into a franchise?

There's not enough story in it to fill a shoebox.

Sometimes charming, sometimes a tad too silly and all the time predictable, Princess Diaries 2 gives you what you'd expect and doesn't take many chances besides allowing for the possibility that a princess might be okay without a husband.

We all love a good fairy tale, but the enchantment is missing in this predictable sequel.

This is one of my favorite movies, and I adore Anne Hathaway not just in these movies but in the other ones she's been in. Also Chris Pine is adorable,… More

It was not even nere the first. The first was original and funny, this was not. This film was pure torture to watch, what a horrible film.

While this sort've loses the grand scale of the first Princess Diaries, it's got a lot better romantic side and works harder on the characters. Chris… More
