Huge letdown After watching Julia Stiles bring an exciting chemistry with Luke Mabry on phase one of this story, it is unconscionable that the producers allowed all the "subs" to be part of this second act. There was no meshing of Eddie and Paige in this version, and leaving out the original parents of both was a HUGE mistake. Part of the charm of the first version was the interaction of Eddie with Paige's family. There was much to explore in the sequel for Paige to do the same with Eddie's parents. And, Arrabella was left out completely. This was a slapstick attempt at comedy and romance and this movie failed on both counts. ...more info
One of the worst movies ever I loved the first The Prince and Me and was excited that a sequel was being made. Unfortunately, the sequel falls far, far short of the the first movie.
The first problem I noticed was that the entire film is just slightly out of focus. I didn't see a single crystal clear shot in the whole film. In addition the lighting was such that it seems as if no one gave lighting any consideration. All in all, very sub-par photography.
The next problem was the script. The actors lines seemed very stilted almost as if the script writer was a beginner. It was almost as if the shooting script was first draft. There were a number of places in the movie where the writer could have inserted really good lines for the actors ... but didn't ... for whatever reason.
There was also a problem with continuity; things would change from shot to shot and it seemed as if no one was paying any attention to detail. A lot of things changed from the first movie; Paige is now blonde, Edvard's father is healthy again, no mention is made of his sister Arabella, Paiges parents look as if someone grabbed them right off the street. The list goes on and on.
The climax of the movie, the wedding scene, was truly disappointing. This was a "royal" wedding? Mt brothers wedding was better than this and it certainly wasn't royal!
The DVD itself is also disappointing. Amazon lists the DVD as wide screen. The printed DVD front and back also indicate that it is wide screen. They are both mistaken. What the movie actually is is a wide screen movie letter boxed into full screen. It WILL NOT play in wide screen.
In summation, this movie fits right in along with Plan 9 From Outer Space and The Robot Monster. It is almost as if a couple of would-be film makers got a couple of hundred dollars together and decided to make a movie. Save your money for something worthwhile. It ain't it!...more info
Not as bad as I thought The Prince and Me 2 is a sequel to The Prince and Me.
Luke Mably is the only actor that was actually in the original and while it takes a little to get past the differences the movie is not too bad.
Paige Morgan and Prince Edvard of Denmark are engaged to be married. That is until Edvard's distant cousin finds a law that states that The King has to marry a royal from Denmark and trys to get his daughter Kirsten to break up the engagment.
Soon it looks like Edvard and Paige are history and that he will marry Kirsten. Paige doesnt give up though and goes looking for a loophole so that she and Edvard can get married.
What happens next? Watch Prince and Me 2...more info
The Prince & Me 2 I like the first one, but they change the actress and it is not the same. I rate it fair and got it to go with the first one....more info
Ok I agree: It would have been better with Julia Stiles, stuck with the original actors, and went more with the original movie, and in reality the original didn't need a sequal. But it was okay. I'm just glad,that Paige and Eddie ended up together. Also: THERE IS NO WAY A ANCIENT LAW LIKE THAT COULD BE VALID.Antiquated means outdated. It's just that a guy wanted to start something over it. Think Eddie's mother was looking for an excuse again for him not to marry Paige? Notice she said protect the "monarchy" not law? Think that this other guy threatened her? Royalty aren't the main lawmakers anymore, so by law they can marry whoever they want, and no one could stop them. BECAUSE THERE IS NO WAY A LAW LIKE THIS COULD BE VALID IF IT'S OUTDATED. If Eddie's mother was looking for a way again, for Eddie not marry Paige, that's back-stabbing, because in the first one saw that Paige was good for him. So what was it?
Again, ok movie though.
Not even filmed in Denmark Firstly, being a dane - I would have hoped that at least 1/4 of the scenes actually were filmed in Denmark - but no!
Secondly, the "supposed" Danish they are speaking is SO bad, that they shouldn't even have tried - it's just painful to watch.
I have to agree with some of the other reviewers as well - the theatricals at the end are too much and really does nothing to bring this movie up to par with the first movie....more info
WTF what is with these producers!? when you produce an excellent movie such as The Prince and Me, and then do a sequel with different actors/actress' it totally SUCKS. i am so sick and tired of this crap! for example fast and the furious, the prince and me, XXX...people need to reconsider whether or not to make a sequel with different actors/actress'. as far as i am concerned, from now on i am going to check each sequel i watch and if it doesn't have the same. well guess what producers, you just lost a sell!...more info
she's no Julia Stiles This movie has to be one of the worst sequels I've ever seen. I am a big fan of The Prince and Me, but as soon as I started watching this one, I knew it could never stand up to the original. Prince Edvard (Luke Mably) is the only returning character, some characters are missing completely, and most of who was cast...has little to no ability in portraying their character. Did they even watch/study the original movie? Terrible acting. Soren (Jonathan Firth) was decent. Paige (Kam Heskin) was ok, but definitely no Julia Stiles. Very disappointed, but glad I only rented it....more info
Bloody Awful!! As a fan of the original Prince & Me this sequel has to be one of the worst ever made. Aside from the talented Luke Mably (who clearly looks uncomfortable in his reprised role as Prince Edvard of Denmark) the rest of the cast and the whole plot of the film is hideous. The actress portraying Paige (Kam Hesketh)lacks any depth and refinement that Julia Stiles brought to the role in the first film. In this sequel some ancient law prohibits Edvard from marrying Paige. Enter some poor Norwegian royal and his ditzy daughter Princess Kirsten who wants to marry Edvard and become Queen of Denmark. In the role of Zoren (The Prince's assistant) Jonathan Firth manages to retain some of the dignity that Ben Miller created, but Maryam D'Abo's Queen Rosalind looks more like a well worn socialite from the Cape and the King has suddenly transformed into a bald and bearded old man. There is no Arabella (Edvard's sister)and Paige's parents are totally miscast. I cannot understand why this follow-up was ever made since Luke Mably is the only returning cast member. This film went straight to DVD so the studio will never recoupe their losses for this turkey....more info
*I Really Liked This!* I must say I liked this.However,I do wish they would have kept the same actors from the first movie.It would have been so great with Julia Stiles in.It was good and kept the story going.The first one is the best,but this is good....more info
The Prince and Me 2 This is a "must see" if you saw the first movie, "The Prince and Me."
If you haven't seen the first movie, watch that first to make it all fall into place. The actress in this movie is different from the one in the first movie, that threw me off a bit. I love both movies and highly recommend them to all girls who enjoy a cute, funny, romantic movie. It is good for young and old, nothing foul about it....more info
Bad followup...destroys character of Paige Morgan The original Prince & Me, with Julia Stiles, was an excellent movie. However, this movie sucks so bad that it makes you wish you had never seen it, and it taints the series for the worse. Pretty much the only carry over from the cast was the actor who played the prince in the original (now king), which likely means that the other actors did not like the script enough to return.
One of the problems is that is really destroys the character of "Paige Morgan" - one of the main roles. The character was a lot more classy in the first movie, and this just rips it away. Compared to the first movie, it basically switches the roles "Paige Morgan" and "Prince Edvard". It would have been a lot better movie if they stuck to keeping Paige Morgan's integrity and class.
If I let anyone watch movies from my collection, and they choose this movie (having watched the first), I tell them not too. It's one of few movies I purchased and regret having done so - and I usually like sequels....more info
Not as good as the first one. This was not as bad as some have said, but it's not the best either. If Julia had stayed and played Paige it would have made the movie so much better. Overall the movie was ok. ...more info
Well, I Sort Of Liked It... Then again I'll watch any movie has the much less famous, often severely under-rated younger Firth brother in it.
(Ok, I'm admittedly smitten, not with the infinitely more well-known Colin, but with his rather splendid character-driven baby brother.)
Fact is this was a rather lack-luster sequel, but I've watched it SEVERAL times, actually bought the darned DVD despite myself to see Jonathan Firth's Soren.
MHO, on the Prince and Me 2?
I didn't like the some of the changes at all. The subtraction of the younger sister, the old king and queen's surprise transformation and the old king's resurrection or remission or whatever THAT was. (Made NO sense that, now WHY was Edward made king again?) I desperately missed Julia Stiles, that's for sure. But other than an awkward moment or two for Luke Mably I thought the rest of the cast was just fine.
But honestly I didn't miss Ben Miller's "Soren" at all. I didn't mind him in the first film, but in all honesty I thought the character a bit bland compared to the way he was portrayed in part 2. Maybe I am biased, but I rather liked the direction Jonathan Firth took him in. I thought it was understated, very charming, and VERY funny.
The Prince and Me 2 The Prince & Me 2 - The Royal Wedding The Prince and Me 2 was a ok, the first one was better with Julia Stiles. Luke Mably was a stud, a true prince charming. If you love romance movies like I do, this will be a good one to view....more info
The Prince and Me 2 - A Little Disappointing I liked the story, but wished that the actors had been the same. The only one that was the same as the original Prince and Me movie was Luke Mably (the Prince). The chemistry between Luke Mably and Kam Heskin was not the same as it was between Luke Mably and Julia Stiles. It was not as close a relationship this time around. With all of the characters being different actors, I felt like I was looking in on some sort of alternate Earth. The only actors which looked like they could have been the same as the first movie was the crowd - which should have been different....more info
A Great love story: It was a great romantic,idealistic,warm hearted love story.Free spirited,level headed, American, Paige, and Prince Edvard love was
put to the test.
The Danish Prince kingship was in jeopardy when an old law stating that an unmarried heir to the throne can only marry a woman of noble blood, or else relinquish the throne.
The Monarch Prince, had to find a loop hole,or relinquish the crown for
Enjoyable, funny, keep you on the edge of your seat love story.
A must see!
Run, Don't Walk Away From this One You just saw the Prince and Me, and with magic in your eyes you want more, well, you are not going to find it here in this straight to video horror.
The scene where the Prince's future wife walks into a room of the worst computer animated butterflies should have been hint enough but there is more...
First you wonder where the rest of the cast has gone, not even the minor, minor characters have returned for a reprise (except the poor Prince).
The plot is not worthy of a movie of the week. It is the typical "We must prevent a commoner from ascending to throne."
Trust me, put the first one back in the DVD player and lets pretend it just did not happen. Watch it and you will be royally sore....more info
The Prince & Me 2 - The Roy Wedding A fine, light romance movie, have enjoyed watching it several times. The only thing that would have made this movie better would have been to have the original cast members from "The Prince and Me" movie. But still a very fine movie and beautiful scenery....more info
Very disappointed It's hard to like a second movie like this one... Only 1 actor returned out of the big characters in the 1st movie. That is what really disappointed me. Julia really made the character in the 1st movie, and would have really made a huge difference in this film....more info
Yes, it is that bad. I finally watched this movie on the Disney channel the other night. Well really I can only say I watched half of the movie. I just couldn't take it anymore. If you liked the first one, DO NOT WATCH THIS! The actress that took over for Julia is much more better suited for the evil Norwegian princess role than Paige Morgan. Luke Mably is the only redeeming actor in the movie and even he feels like he is just there for the paycheck. It's a real turd....more info
The Prince & Me 2 What most people are forgetting is that this is (yes, though a sequel) also a movie of its own. If you don't compare the two movies, what you get is not too bad. The acting is... decent, the set is still rather beautiful, and you also get a bit of laugh out of it.
When you compare the first and the second though, of course, the first one is going to be better. The cast in the first one is more ably than the second.
In the first movie, you have Julia Stiles and Miranda Richardson. They alone ably moved the movie right along. In the second one, you have a completely new cast, and every actor has a certain way in which they see their character; so, you mustn't be too harsh when you've seen the differentiation.
What I consider to be the downfall of the movie is the presentation of the characters and even the actors they chose, because it is the actors that brings a certain something to a film.
Paige's look in this movie is prissy. I thought the actress, Kam Heskin, is better fitted in a movie such as Mean Girls or something of the like. She also doesn't hold onto the portrayal very well. She seems to lose grasp on the concept of Paige's character every now and then (And she pouts too much).
Luke Mably seems lost and uncomfortable in the film. During the first movie, his performance isn't bad. It is actually quite good. I think he gets a bit lost in this movie because he doesn't have a compatible actor to work against as in the first one with Julia Stiles.
What is also disappointing is the lack of depth in the plot. The plot seems almost silly and childish. There's a lacking of character development in the script (which may have also caused the actors to fail a bit in this department).
If you really want to watch this film, I highly suggest that you rent it first.
it could had been better prince edvard is very handsome like always but his face got a little older and the hair is different i like his hair on the first movie. and i like paige morgan the original one the second paige morgan doesnt really act the same she is much to soft to look at, she doesnt fill and act like she is in the movie she doesnt fit like a princess. while julia is innocent but more like she knows how to act a lot better.. you go girl...more info
not as bad as people say it is I think people are being a little too harsh about the sequal. I agree, it would've been better with Julia Stiles but Kam wasn't awful. Luke Mably was as hansome and talented as ever. He held this movie very well. From a girl's standpoint, I wish he was in it more but it was still pretty good. Is it me or does Kam have a weird body? I dont know. I mean, she's thin and all but her upper body is a bit to wide. Maybe it was the clothes that didn't fit her body type. Anyway, I don't regret buying this movie at all because I found myself watching it over and over again and I'm 23 years old. Give this movie a chance! Don't base your decision on other what other people think. After all, everyone is different....more info
the wedding of a prince and his commoner bride a chance meeting of two college students who find themselves in a completely different kind of situation. both growing up much faster than each expecting , but making the goals in their new life together come true
not as bad as all that Even though this sequel didn't include any of the orignal cast except for Luke Mably, it wasn't as bad as some of the previous reviews make it out to be. I have definitely seen some worse sequels than this.
Though Julia Stiles would have been better than Kam Heskin, it is a sequel worth watching. Just because other people don't like that doesn't mean you won't; just rent it from a local video store and if you like it enough to want to buy it then go ahead....more info
Not as Good as the Original but not Bad either!! I enjoyed watching The Prince & Me 2.
Not as good as the original but it's not that bad as some reviews are making out that it is.
Okay, none of the original cast came back to the sequel, other than Luke Mably but Kam Heskin played a nice Paige and Joathan Fith performance as Soren was very good.
The Prince & me 2 isn't a five star production BUT if you watch the sequel for what it is you will find that it is a nice clean romantic comedy. Give this movie a go!! ...more info
Fairly entertaining...... I loved the first "Prince and Me" and was sad to see that Julia Stiles did not return for the sequel. I didn't expect much from the movie after having read some of the reviews but "Prince and Me 2" really isn't as bad as it is made out to be. You cannot compare it to the first film because the first film did have more going for it - a bigger budget, more experienced director and screenwriters, more talented cast (Julia, James Fox, Miranda Richardson and Ben Miles sadly do not return), better script and higher production values.
"Prince and Me 2", however, isn't totally devoid of charm. Luke Mably is back and still as handsome as ever. His character IS more serious and more grown up - after all, he is king now. Kam Heskin (who I did like in the modern day "Pride & Prejudice") replaces Julia as Paige Morgan and does what the script demands of her. The always likeable Jonathan Firth (Colin's brother) is a fair replacement for Ben Miles as Soren eventhough his role is fairly small. Clemency Burton-Hill is quite good as the conniving Princess Kirsten and the majority of locations from the first film are back in the sequel.
Instead of the romantic drama that "Prince & Me" was, this version is more of a romantic comedy. In fact, I couldn't help comparing it to "The Princess Diaries 2" somehow. After all, this film is about a nobleman relative who introduces a 'complication' to the royal succession and brings forward his younger relative (his daughter) as a more suitable wife to the prince. "TPD 2" is very similar except that the nobleman puts forward his younger relative (his nephew) as a more suitable successor to the throne.
This film has its faults, of course. There are a few scenes that are a tad silly or corny (several comedies are guilty of this, unfortunately). The actors in this film simply do not have the experience and talent that the first film had. The screenplay could use some work. I also agree that though Kam Heskin's Paige is not bad, this Paige is just not the same intelligent, ambitious, down-to-earth and no-nonsense Paige that we fell in love with in the first film. I really wish the filmmakers made more of an effort to follow the story thread and characterizations of the first film.
All this aside, I still liked this sequel to "Prince and Me." It was nice to see Paige and Prince Edvard's relationship reach its conclusion and Luke Mably is always a pleasure to watch. If you like romantic comedies with the sort of slapstick humor that "Princess Diaries 2" or "Ella Enchanted" have, for instance, then this movie is worth a watch. Lower your expectations and don't expect it to be exactly like the first "Prince and Me" and you won't be disappointed....more info
Not bad I thought this sequel was actually nice. It has a good plot line and brings to a close the courtship of Paige and Eddie. In spite of the film's low budget (which is probably why none on the big stars are in the sequel), it moves right along and is fun to watch. Granted, the computerized butterflies are a bit strange, but overall, is a well put together flick. ...more info
So bad, it's almost funny I saw the first Prince and Me movie and loved it, so I decided to give this one a try. Julia Stiles did not return, so they got this girl who looks a little like her, but they want you to think it is her. They also use lame special effects; there is one scene where Paige walks in a room full of computerized butterflies and you can really tell they are fake. This movie was a waste of time, even if you are the biggest Prince and Me fan....more info
A sweet, clean, romantic film After reading the reviews about this movie, I have come to the conclusion that many people hate it simply because almost all of the actors have changed from the original film. Apparently, they are used to the actors from the first film, and can't accept that someone new can play the part.
Have you ever seen a play in a theater? Each time a play is redone, there is a NEW cast, with NEW characters, and the new actors bring something different to their roles than the actors that went before them did. Having new actors actually makes the production more interesting!
I watched this movie knowing that most of the actors were different, but I didn't let it bother me. I enjoyed the movie--it wasn't five stars, but it wasn't one either (which most people seem to be giving it!). It is a movie I can watch with my kids and not be worried about questionable content. It is a movie that made me smile--and I felt good after watching it. If you like light romantic movies, then give this one a try. And if you have seen the first film, don't let the fact that there are different actors in the second keep you from enjoying yourself!...more info
My 8 year old daughter even thought it was terrible! What a disappointment! What a terrible sequel! True, most sequels can't hold a candle to the original but they are at least enjoyable to watch. The whole time I watched this movie I stayed confused. You would think the writers would stay true to the original but they did not. First off, "Paige" was not even "Paige." This Kem girl was not down to earth and practical like Julia Stiles was in the first one. Julia brought this "simple" yet beautiful look to the role of Paige - easy to see her become queen. The new Paige was just plain ditzy! Second, the king seemed to be knocking on deaths door in the first movie, but was miraculously healed in this one! The queen wasn't regal, Edvard's sister was non existent - along with Paige's bothers, and when Paige's parents came to the wedding they weren't even right. What a terrible movie!! My daughter and I loved the first one - this one was just plain awful! Don't waste your money or time! This movie was a whole spin off of Princess Diaries II - but at least that movie was entertaining, as this one was not!!! ...more info
Very disappointing I can't believe that they did not have Julia Stiles play Paige. That would have made the movie. Eddie didn't even look good, he looked fake. The story line was horrible nothing like the first movie where you just fell in love. It was a smooth movie all the way through for the first one, this sequel was not good at all. Very hard to stay interested. I couldn't wait for the sequel to come out especially since I have watched The Prince and Me so many times that I know it all by heart, but now I am very disappointed....more info
It was very enjoyable If you saw Prince me, you have to see Prince and Me 2 to see what happened to Eddie and Paige.I didn't expect the movie to change the world and it didn't. But it lived up to what I expected, a sweet love story. Yes it was a bit corny, but you expect this when dealing with fairytales. Yes, It was disappointing that everyone except Edvard (Luke Mably) was gone, but after a while I forgot that most of the original cast members were missing. Kam Heskin did a good job as Paige Morgan. Both leads had great chemistry, and played off each other well.I would recommend this movie....more info
