Monte Carlo

Based on the book, Headhunters by Jules Bass. Monte Carlo tells the story of a girl and her best friend who travels to Paris, accompanied by her uptight stepsister when she was mistaken for a British heiress.

The story was so simple. It's like a rags-to-riches kinda tale. The movie was so simple that it will make you feel more relaxed watching now that there are more intense movies. What I enjoyed about the movie is the travel to Europe. A travel to Europe is one of my bucket list. France is also one of the countries in Europe I want to see. I was not surprise to hear the song "La Vie En Rose" by Louis Armstrong.but I enjoy listening.

When I watched this on an advance screening, I thought this will be watched by women but I found out that the men were dominant so it is something guys want to watch as well. What I wish to find out if Cory Monteith and Selena Gomez was casts in this movie because of their popular statuses respectively since Monteith is currently on Glee and Selena is currently Justin Bieber's girlfriend. As expected, this is a wholesome movie since Selena Gomez still has that Disney image in her. Andie McDowell comes back after a long absence in movies. Stars Selena Gomez,  Leighton Meester, Kate Cassidy, Cory Monteith, and Andie McDowell.  “Monte Carlo” opens July 1 in theaters from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

  1. I have not seen the film yet but I just might see it due to the fact that I've got a huge crush on Leighton Meester. Not really a fan of Selena Gomez though since I've gotten a bit sick of her since my daughter used to watch that Disney tv series The Wizards (of something.. Can't recall the bloody title) Place and her character is fcuking annoying. LOL. Good luck on your bucket list.
