Our Score
Filmed largely in Hungary, with Budapest doubling for both Paris and Monte Carlo, this unremarkable romp staggers along with the old "mistaken identity" storyline. While vacationing in Paris, American teenager Grace (Selena Gomez) is assumed to be lookalike Cordelia (also Gomez), a spoiled British heiress, and is whisked off with her two companions (Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy) to a life of super-luxury in Monte Carlo. The three ride along with the ruse until the slapdash plot introduces not only a missing necklace and the arrival of a French detective straight from the Inspector Clouseau School of Silly Policemen, but also the arrival of the real Cordelia. So corny that a cereal company could have sponsored it, Monte Carlo is pure pre-teen fluff but fans of Disney Channel regular Gomez and shows like Gossip Girl and Glee (Glee star Cory Monteith plays Cassidy's boyfriend) probably won't care.
