The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement | 2004 | G | - 2.1.0

Princess Mia (Anne Hathaway) is finally settling into Genovian life, when new complications arise. Expected to take the throne as queen earlier than first planned, she learns of a law that requires her to be married prior to her coronation. With guidance from the current queen, who is also her grandmother (Julie Andrews), and their security chief (Hector Elizondo), Mia carefully tiptoes her way through an arranged courtship and attention from another suitor who appears to have ulterior motives. Also with Heather Matarazzo, Callum Blue, and Spencer Breslin. [2:00]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A man and a woman kiss in a few scenes. A man and a woman fall asleep late at night underneath a tree and awaken the next morning: both are fully clothed and there are no implications of any sexual activity having taken place. While dancing, a young boy asks an older (and much taller) girl if he can blow in her ear. During a search through photographs for a suitable suitor for an arranged marriage, a woman comments that one of the men has a boyfriend. Women wear formal gowns that reveal cleavage.

VIOLENCE/GORE 1 - A woman who is learning archery keeps missing the target resulting in arrows piercing a car tire, a light fixture, and other objects; she also accidentally elbows her trainer in the abdomen. A woman kicks a man. One female character is particularly clumsy and often trips or stumbles over objects. A man threatens to injure another man. Scary music plays as a woman explores a darkened corridor.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
