If you are looking for a fun girly movie (great for girls of all ages) this is a great one. I had a blast watching it, and it also has my 15 year old niece's approval.
Grace, her step-sister and her best friend go on a post-high school graduation trip to Paris, where their dream vacation starts out great and turns into a touristy nightmare of keeping up with everyone else's packed schedules. They miss their tour bus at one stop, get drenched in the rain, and end up at a posh hotel where Grace is mistaken for a wealthy (and spoiled) Paris socialite.
Suddenly, the girls touristy vacation turns into a humorous and luxurious walk in someone else's shoes (literally). While Grace is off pretending to be someone else (and make a difference for a charity event), her step-sister falls in love, and her best friend finds out that all is not always as it seems for the rich, and she may have had it pretty good back home.
Without giving too much away, I'll just say that it was a feel-good movie, that won't leave you crying at the end (unless you are sappy for a happy ending), and that it will take you to some beautiful sites in and around Paris and Monte Carlo.
Note: I was hoping for some sort of musical scenes in which Salena Gomez got to sing... but not the case this time around... maybe next time?? :)
Perfect for tweens, teens, and girls of ANY age because it is both cute and fun. No objectionable content from my perspective (no bad language, no sex, no drugs, etc)
