monte carlo {movie review}

During the epic Nichols sleepover last weekend, we made a trip to the grocery store {for nutella and Dr. Pepper, DUH} and stopped to get a movie as well. After debating and getting frozen to the bone because man oh man it was windy, we decided on Monte Carlo and hoped that is wasn't as cheesy as it sounded.

And it wasn't! Trust me, it is a fun movie to watch with your girlfriends. Certainly not the best movie ever made {I'm still trying to figure out which one is MY favorite} but lighthearted all the same. By the end I was getting REALLY into it and wanted everything to work out for the character's no matter how cliche is was.

It's really pretty obvs that everything works out, though...hence the cliche part of things. Lovers are reunited after a nasty breakup, and many people find love. With that being said, there's really no spoiler aspect to the movie or my review.  But, read on only if you want to!

Here's the synopsis from Monte Carlo's FB page...

"Grace (Selena Gomez) is an ordinary girl who becomes an accidental princess when a family summer trip to Paris turns into the fantasy of a lifetime. Living like royalty, Grace, along with her two best friends, discovers who she really is – by assuming another person’s identity."

I've never really been a fan of Selena Gomez, but she was sing relatively well {and the songs are catchy, so what?} and act well to but I was surprised at her skills in this movie. It was the first time I'd really seen her play a different role. She was rocking the clothes too! I love each and every one of her outfits.

love Grace's bag, the blue striped top and blazer, and skirt on the right.
