A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this movie.

Educational Value

Princess romance meant to entertain rather than educate.

Positive Messages

Follow your heart. True love wins in the end. Keep working hard for what you want and you'll get it. It's strongly implied that Paige didn't need to be jealous of Kirsten when she was "rotund," but Kirsten is thin now and a serious rival for Edvard's affection.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Edvard and Paige are good models for working hard, taking responsibilities seriously, and doing what they feel is right. Paige continues to pursue her medical degree even as her wedding into a royal family is only a few weeks away. Edvard's parents are supportive, trust him to do the right thing. A university campus has some ethnic diversity, but all the main characters are Caucasian. The villains are shallow and greedy. Kirsten and Edvard exchange some laughs about how she used to be fat. Edvard drives too fast, and neither he nor his passenger wear seat belts.

Violence & Scariness

Some mild scariness in a dark catacomb with vague, skeleton-like images along walls or in recesses.

Sexy Stuff

A few kisses, one or two lasting several seconds; bride and groom kissing at a wedding.

Language
Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

A scene in a nightclub setting; young adults order wine and beer. Adults drink wine several times on social and state occasions, usually as part of a meal. No excess is shown.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Prince & Me II: The Royal Wedding is a fairy tale princess romance sequel that picks up pretty much where The Prince & Me left off. There's no content of concern for any age, really, but the grown-up situation involving an antiquated Danish law won't be of much interest to kids younger than tweens. And little kids who saw the first movie may be confused because a different actress, who looks quite different, plays Paige in this installment. There are a few kisses, and adults drink wine and beer moderately in social situations or with meals. There's also some mild scariness in a dark catacomb. It'll be best enjoyed by hard-core fans of all things princess, romance, and royalty.

What's the story?

THE PRINCE & ME II: THE ROYAL WEDDING picks up with Edvard (Luke Mably) and Paige's (Kam Heskin) wedding just a few short weeks away. While the two are in the midst of wedding planning, med school classes (Paige), learning Danish (Paige), and running a country (Edvard), greedy Prince Albert (Jim Holt) from Norway arrives quoting an obscure, ancient law that means Edvard can't stay on the throne if he marries Paige. Albert knows that if his daughter, Princess Kirsten (Clemency Burton-Hill), marries Edvard instead, Albert will be saved from financial ruin. Can a loophole be found that will allow Edvard to marry the woman he loves?

Is it any good?

Unfortunately, this fairy tale princess sequel doesn't quite deliver the royal wedding bang real fans will be looking for. When it's right there in the title, The Prince & Me II: The Royal Wedding, viewers will be looking forward to pageantry, spectacle, gowns, and all the trappings of the ultimate romantic fantasy. But in this case, we patiently wait through a series of predictable stumbling blocks against the happy couple for a royal wedding that doesn't live up to the name. Paige only has 10 minutes to get dressed for the wedding, and her gown is disappointing. And then the ceremony can't even start until she awkwardly tries to read the Danish constitution aloud and in Danish. Instead of feeling like the culmination of everything that's come before, the wedding itself has so little time devoted to it that it ends up feeling more like a side note.

The happily ever after is never in doubt, and the stumbling blocks aren't very compelling or suspenseful. There are lots of better choices out there for hard-core fans of all things princess, romance, and royalty.
