  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.

    If Andrews oozes regal poise and Hathaway radiates movie star allure -- and they do -- credit the actresses, not this flimsy fairy tale.
  5. Mr. Marshall, is not much of a film director. Depending on the budget, his movies look either cheap (like this one) or studio slick ("Pretty Woman"), and tend to have the same flat, presentational visual style that's familiar from most sitcoms.

    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.
