the oh-no! DVD of the week: ‘Princess Protection Program’

Get ready for a hilarious and heartwarming royal reality check in Princess Protection Program, the new smash-hit Disney Channel Original Movie starring Selena Gomez, Wizards Of Waverly Place, and Demi Lovato, Sonny With A Chance. Plus, this Royal B.F.F. Extended Edition DVD features an insider’s look at the realities and responsibilities of being a real-life princess and lets you listen in as real-life best friends Selena and Demi dish about their lives on and off the set!

I can’t decide which makes my pink tutu quiver more: the prospect of having a real-life princess in my living room (on DVD), or the heartwarming adorableness of the coincidence that two real-life BFFs got the chance to star in a movie together. I bet that’s awesome!

The worlds of royalty and roughing-it collide when the lovely Rosalinda, Lovato enters the Princess Protection Program and moves in with her new cousin Carter, Gomez, a total tomboy. In an unexpected role reversal, Rosie learns how to act like an everyday girl and Carter finds her own inner princess. Once they discover what they have in common, they prove that best friends really are forever.

Oh, don’t they know? All girls have an inner princess!

  • “every girl has an inner princess”

    oh, gawds! gag me! i hope my super cool 5 year old niece never gets exposed to this piece of mindless, yet soul-destroying, dangerous piece of fluff!

    Awww, it wasn’t terrible. (Though, I do wonder how much of the Selena/Demi BFF’edness is Disney-hype’d.)

    And, you *have* to give credit for Disney trying to add another dimension to their Disney Princesses empire, where the girls learned that “it’s not about what you are, but who you are and what you can offer to the world.”

  • “it’s not about what you are, but who you are and what you can offer to the world.”

    screw that! more girls offering themselves up for others crap! you never see a “boy’s” movie with a tag line like that. they always get action, and “the adventure of a lifetime!”

    i want my nieces to have adventures — not be nice princesses offering whatever they are to the “world”!

    Intelligent people don’t mock movies they haven’t seen. Come on, people, seriously?

    Not the best lil movie I have ever seen but surely not “dangerous” and trying to prove that there’s more to the princess concept than the fancypants, selfishness aspect.

    Disney makes plenty of movies representing other sides of womanhood and responsibility and adventure.

    Watch the movies, let your kids watch them, then make the judgments and tell them what bothered you. It works out better than banning.

    My 5yo kid still watches Hannah Montana, enjoys it, criticizes it, and has no interest in the merch or concert tix.

    It just doesn’t have to be so black & white.
