The Prince and Me DVD Review

In 2004, you've been bombarded with fairy tale movies of princes and princesses and happily ever after endings - but how many of them really get you day dreaming of what it would be like to be swept off your feet? Find out if the Prince and Me makes the grade or if you should keep searching for that perfect catch.

The Prince and Me - A Prince is Born

The Prince and Me is the tale of the prince of Denmark. He's rich, young and can get any girl he wants. He's wild and his parents, the King and Queen of Denmark, have no idea how to keep him in line. Then he gets the idea to head off to Wisconsin, after watching a Girls Gone Wild type commercial. His parents really aren't interested in funding any more of his "self-discovery" trips, so he says he'll support himself while in the States. And, it's at the University of Wisconsin that Prince Edvard finds the girl of his dreams.

The Prince and Me - Magical Moments

At first you never think that Edvard and Paige (played by Julia Stiles) will never get together. Paige is determined to not let love get in the way of her dreams of becoming a doctor - which on one hand is pretty cool and on the other hand is pretty frustrating cuz you really want them to hurry up and fall in love (it is a romance movie, after all). Things eventually do heat up between the two love birds when Paige invites Edvard to her parents' house for Thanksgiving. One of the most exciting scenes takes place when Edvard enters a lawn mower race with Paige's brothers - it's a lot of fun.

The Prince and Me - Royal Flush

Paige Morgan will probably remind you of another Julia Stiles character think back, way back, to Ten Things I Hate About You. Both Kat Strafford (Julia's character in Ten Things), and Paige Morgan are strong, determined girls. Neither wants a boy to get in the way of their dreams. The only difference with The Prince and Me is that Paige Morgan isn't all that likable. At first you think that Edvard doesn't deserve a girl like Paige cuz he's so self-centered but as the movie goes on you realize that Edvard just needs to grow up a bit - which he eventually does. Paige on the other hand is just really whiny. She doesn't really try to be grown-up about her decisions - she just acts very impulsively and expects everyone to feel sorry for her.

The Prince and Me - DVD Features

If you weren't impressed with the movie, it's doubtful that you'll be impressed with the extra features on the DVD. The alternate ending that's included is even worse than the one they chose. The deleted scenes are kind of cool, but they're not exactly worth picking the DVD up for.

The Prince and Me - Bottom Line
If you have to check out a fairly tale movie this year, make it something other than The Prince and Me. There are a ton of great romantic movies out there - you'd be much better off checking out something like The Princess Diaries or A Cinderella Story. The story in The Prince and Me drags on and the characters will really get on your nerves by the end.

    Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
