Starring Selena Gomez, MONTE CARLO tells the story of friends Grace (Gomez) and Emma (Katie Cassidy) who save up their money to go on a trip to Paris to celebrate graduating. To their dismay, Emma’s uptight future stepsister (Leighton Meester) ends up tagging along as well. The trip starts out as rustic and hectic, but things take a turn for the better when Grace is mistaken for a British heiress. The three girls end up at a lavish charity event in Monte Carlo where they learn about boys, polo, and who they are.
Sure, the whole plot is a bit redundant and predictable, but we assume it would smell amazing. The films high points are with the casting: Gomez, Cassidy and Meester pull off as a cute trio, and GLEE’s Cory Monteith was the icing on the gourmet cake. It’s a harmless yet slightly annoying plot that’s prime for slumber parties. Basically, if you loved THE LIZZIE MCGUIRE MOVIE, you’ll love MONTE CARLO (they’re pretty much the same film).
