Movie: Monte Carlo (2011)

She's having the time of someone else's life.
 
Monte Carlo (2011) is a romantic comedy movie about three friends posing as wealthy socialites in Monte Carlo, Monaco. 
Synopsis: Grace (Selena Gomez) has been saving for her dream trip to Paris with her best friend Emma (Katie Cassidy). When the day finally arrives, her mother (Andie MacDowell) and stepfather (Brett Cullen) insist that Grace's stepsister Meg (Leighton Meester) should be joining them, much to Grace's disappointment.

The trip turns out to be a disaster at first, and eventually an eventful one when Grace is mistaken for a spoiled British heiress, Cordelia Winthrop-Scott. They travel to Monte Carlo to assume the heiress' identity and life.

Basically, this movie is somewhat "inspirational" for teens and the message is "you're good when you're yourself, don't pretend to be someone else". Ironically, according to this movie, you need to go through the mistaken identity phase first before you discover how important being yourself is. Maybe.

About the three main actresses: Katie Cassidy looks too old and somewhat "slutty" for her character; Selena Gomez is pretty okay as she can act as an innocent Grace and the next minute, she's a stuck-up Cordelia. Leighton Meester can do better than being a sour prune and negative force in the group. There's not much "sister" chemistry among the three girls. Later on, all three have separate romantic scenes with their sweethearts. Cliché. Cliché. Cliché. Urgh.

Whatever the case is, this is a dull rom-com that I won't bother to recommend unless you really like Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester.
