Marshall, G. (Director). (2001). The Princess Diaries [Motion picture]. Burbank, CA: Walt Disney.

Mia Thermopolis isn't exactly the ideal princess. She is clumsy, goofy, and just plain odd. One day, she is visited by the Queen of Genovia and told that she is not only a princess, but next in line to rule this tiny European Country..."SHUT UP!"  Starring Anne Hathaway, Julie Andrews, Hector Elizondo, and Mandy Moore, viewers will be laughing, and crying, in this tale about an underdog turned hero.

In order to prepare Mia for her role as princess, not only does she have to deal with a team of hairdressers, make up artists, manicurists, and stylists, she has to cope with the paparazzi and her new royal reputation. Unfortunately, if Mia does not want to  claim her royal birth right, the country will be passed down to an outside family, thus, the end of the Thermpolis line.  Like most teens, Mia not only has to balance the trials of adolescence, she also has to grow up, quickly, and make a life changing decision that will give her more responsibility than any teen could possibly imagine.
