Win the "Monte Carlo" DVD – A Whirlwind Cinderella Story

by Cie McCullough Buschle on October 19, 2011

in Arts and Culture

monte-carlo-dvdSelena Gomez is known to tweens as much for her singing as her acting, and in her song from Monte Carlo, Who Says, she sings “I wouldn’t want to be anybody else”.

That’s the lesson learned in Monte Carlo – it doesn’t matter if you are a waitress from Texas instead of a rich heiress that travels the globe – “You’ve got every right to a beautiful life.”

Grace (Gomez) saves up to go to Paris after graduating high school, a dream come true for her and best friend Emma (Katie Cassidy) and stepsister Meg (Leighton Meester, from “Gossip Girl”).

But the tour was cheap, and the girls are disappointed, until Emma and Meg realize that Grace looks EXACTLY like stuck up heiress Cordelia Winthrop-Scott. Reluctant at first, Grace gets a simple taste of the not-so-simple life and Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo all three get the holiday the brochures had promised. Not only in Paris, but on…to Monte Carlo!

Of course, no one can pretend to be someone else forever, and Grace finds out just like Selena sings “I’m just beautiful me”.

"You look just like her!"

The movie is cute and fun, barely worth the PG rating (don’t cough or you will miss the “brief mild language”). It makes for a great family night movie, and a good starting point for family discussions about the importance of being you.

Another subtle point for teens: just because you have gotten through high school doesn’t mean you have all the answers as to who you are. Watch the fun Cinderella ride, enjoy the travel picture show, and hope some of these messages sink in with your own Princess Grace.
