Five Things Wrong With The Princess Diaries
We live in an age where modern directors like to bend the truth… a lot. We also live in an age where you watch the same movie over and over again to find out what the directors did wrong (Peter Jackson, Gary Ross, etc.).
- In movie two where is Michael?
Sure, I get that I haven’t watched it yet. But I’ve seen the trailers and I don’t see Michael at all. I don’t even see John-Paul Abernathy IV. Did Garry Marshall skip a few books? Is Chris Pine portraying J.P.? I don’t see how he is, considering that he’s in the Genovian government.
- Mia’s interest in Greenpeace.
In the movie Mia couldn’t care less about Greenpeace. Sure, they say a little thing for Lilly, but not much. In every book there’s like a whole five paragraphs (or more) that have the word Greenpeace and animals. They don’t say anything about Mia being vegetarian (which she changes in book eight).
- Mia’s mother marries Mr. O’ Connell or Mr. Gianni (read #4)
Mia’s mother (Helen) doesn’t marry Mr. Gianni. In book two her mother is supposed to marry Mr. Gianni.
- The name changes in Mr. Gianni.
Another one of my problems is that Mr. Gianni’s name in the movie is not really Mr. Gianni. It’s Mr. O’ Connell. (See #5 for my second problem with Mr. Gianni in the movie.)
- Mr. Gianni in the movie is not Mia’s Algebra teacher. He’s her Debate teacher
I don’t even know what teacher he is. But he’s not her Algebra teacher. Because what Algebra teacher would make his students debate.
Well, that’s all for now. And I know there’s more where that came from.
