  1. Ends strong, in an ultimately smoother, smarter sequel.
  2. As a movie, it's a mixed bag with a huge amount of heart.
  3. Although all the key players are back - including, fans will be glad to hear, Heather Matarazzo as cynical sidekick Lilly Moscovitz - the freshness of the first is long gone.

    Sometimes charming, sometimes a tad too silly and all the time predictable.

    Good-natured but overstuffed sequel.

    Benefits from extremely modest expectations. For it to be anything but painfully arbitrary would count as an accomplishment, so the fact that it's superficially entertaining qualifies as a minor triumph.
  7. There's not enough story in it to fill a shoebox.

    The film is meant only for girls. A sequel that has nothing to do with its front. It's like a Disney Princess movie but modern version.

    As with any sequel, some of the original zest is lost. Nevertheless, Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews are a match-made-in-heaven. They keep us entertained and what more could we ask for? Expand
