I have to say "FINALLY!!". Why don't they make more movies like "Mean Girls", those Olsen Movies, or the old Hilary Duff ones? Which are predictable, girly and funny. And that's why i am really happy with "Monte Carlo". It was exactly that! A a good light girly movie for fun.
Many don't like Selena Gomez for many reasons. I think she is a great young actress, especially for comedies and movies like this one. She has her way to make you laugh and for me it was a nice change to see her in something different than Wizards of Waverly Place.
Leighton Meester is another actress which until recently was mostly known for her role at Gossip Girl. The last two years though, has started working on movies too and in different genres too. Drama is more her style but she was okay in this one too. I really liked how she had less or more simple make up on, and seemed closer to the normal people than the beauty she is. And it also match her role's personality good too.
Katie Cassidy was amazing! Another girl i have watched only in TV but she was totally amazing. She was my favorite of the trio for both her character and acting. She seemed more into it like the other girls.
The movie is not much of something new or wow, but you spent a nice time watching it. I liked how they didn't put some of Leighton's or Selena's singing in to promote them but kept it all in the acting and normal characters.
If you are into that kind of movies, i think you will really like it! I don't believe boys could watch it though while they might find it too girly with all the romance,etc but you never know.
