Princess Diaries & Princess Diaries 2 on Blu-Ray & DVD – Closed

The Princess Diaries and the Princess Diaries 2 is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary with a DVD and Blu-Ray combo pack available in stores now.

Here’s a synopsis:

The Princess Diaries:

Invisible to everyone with the exception of her mother, best friend Lilly and Lilly’s older brother Michael. Making it through high school without throwing up is a challenge in itself for Mia, so it doesn’t come as welcome news when her estranged grandmother shows up out of the blue and calmly informs her that she is in fact the heir to the throne of a European country called Genovia. Suddenly Mia’s life is thrown into complete overload. She’s being taught about scarves, waves and pears in order to become a perfect princess, she gets a makeover and a tough looking yet sweet bodyguard/limo driver called Joe. Things get out of hand when the media gets a hold of the story and suddenly Mia is thrust into the spotlight in both thenewspapers and in school. On top of all that Mia has a choice to make. She must decide by Genovia’s Independence Day Ball whether she longs to relinquish her claim on the throne or to become the princess and heir to the throne and father and grandmother want her to be.

The Princess Diaries 2:  

This modern-day fairy tale picks up right where The Princess Diaries left off!  As future queen of Genovia, Princess Mia (Hathaway) has everything a girl could want – except the magical romance she’s always dreamed of.  But soon, Mia’s shocked to discover that she needs to get married right now or her family will lose the crown! Comic complications rule the day in this delightful family story about finding out who you really are and discovering what it takes to make your dreams come true!

I was actually surprised to learn these movies were based on books, this is something I’d never really know as I am not much of a reader.

These movies are for older tweens/teens, there is some kissing and while it’s rated G, it still may make you blush if you watch the movie together as a young family.  I have a 3 year old at home, and there is no way I would show these movies to her just yet.   I generally like to screen movies before we  watch them as a family, even the G ones and this is one that I’m very glad that I put into the DVD player before attempting to watch it as a family.  Just a short review this time, as I did not find them as family friendly as I was hoping for and did not continue watching the film as I knew it would not make the cut.

While I know I’ve watched the films in the past, it just goes to show how much I forget overtime and as life circumstances change, I see things now that would have never even crossed my mind years ago.

  1. As my kids get older and grasp more of what’s happening in movies, I do find myself screening even the cartoon movies we watch.

  2. No we basically only watch family style movies together or read the reviews to see if family friendly.

  3. Haven’t yet. My son isn’t really the sit down and watch movies type of child he will watch Barney and The Wiggles though. They hold his attention very well.

  4. Only if it’s a movie I’m on the fence about – like I let the little bit see Hairspray because she loves to sing and dance.

  5. yes, sometimes i do because some of the kids and family’s out there haven’t watched these kind of movies before

  6. My child are too young for me to screen movies (5 months old!) I think I will when she gets older however. My parents didn’t and I am scarred for life – just kidding, but kind of!

  7. It depends on the company behind the movie. Typical family movies from Disney or Pixar are generally ok for my oldest to watch without having us prescreen. We do read reviews and watch trailers before we make the decision to purchase.

  8. I just check the rating and usually my friends and family make recommendations to me about movies to watch with my children. Thank you for this nice giveaway

  9. No not normally. I will read the back of a movie and normally know what the movie is about from preview or media review/facebook etc,

  10. My little guy has a really vivid imagination and gets scared really easily (the Backson in Winnie the Pooh Movie was too scary) so we try to screen pretty much everything. These movies, however, would be for me to watch when my hubby has the sports on and my little guys are in bed (I am a sucker for G rated romance movies, I also love Enchanted)!

  11. If I know little ones will be over, I will prescreen the movie to ensure the content is acceptable to the child’s age.
