QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A recent high-school graduate on vacation in Paris with her stepsister and best friend assumes the identity of a snobby British heiress who is her exact look-alike.
PLOT:
Grace (SELENA GOMEZ) is about to graduate high school, and she's saved for the past four years to go to Paris with her waitress friend, Emma (KATIE CASSIDY). She is a child of divorce, and her mom Pam (ANDIE MacDOWELL) has recently remarried widower Robert (BRETT CULLEN). Robert's young twenty-something daughter, Meg (LEIGHTON MEESTER), is still reeling from the death of her mother and has closed herself off from the joys of life. Seeking to bring the two girls together and snap Meg out of her funk, Robert decides to pay Meg's way onto Grace's dream trip and upgrade the girls to First Class as a "thank you."

Once in Paris, Grace is mistaken for a snobby British heiress, Cordelia (also played by SELENA GOMEZ), who Emma and Meg overhear has decided to "play hooky" from her family and charitable obligations for a week. They convince Grace to take her place, and the three live the high life for a while in France and then Monte Carlo.

Meanwhile, Meg meets a nice, hunky Australian named Riley (LUKE BRACEY) who is also traveling through Europe, and Emma considers cheating on Owen (CORY MONTEITH), her boyfriend back home, with Prince Domenico (GIULIO BERRUTI). Grace finds herself attracted to Theo (PIERRE BOULANGER), a young Frenchman bored with the wealthy socialites he usually meets. Her ruse is threatened when Cordelia's Aunt Alicia (CATHERINE TATE) and then Cordelia herself show up just prior to a climactic charitable event.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Yes, especially "tween" and teen girls who are fans of Selena Gomez from her show, "Wizards of Waverly Place."
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For brief mild language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
