About the Movie

Why fit in when you were born to stand out? Amanda Bynes ("What I Like About You") stars as Daphne Reynolds, a spirited 17-year-old New Yorker who travels to London to find her long-lost father. In contrast to her bohemian mother, Daphne discovers her father, Lord Henry Dashwood (Colin Firth--Bridget Jones' Diary), to be a very proper politician and English gentleman. Undaunted, Daphne dives into a schedule of stuffy social events, determined to prove that love--and proper etiquette--can conquer all. But as hard as she tries to reunite her parents and make a bid for "Debutante of the Year," Daphne cannot conceal her irrepressible personality or hide What a Girl Wants.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Girls undoubtedly will want to see it, but What a Girl Wants feels a bit like a reheated version of The Princess Diaries. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: A sanitized adventure for the Mary Kate-and-Ashley set. – Anya Kamenetz, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: A dreadful teen comedy. – Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 30, 2003

Rotten: It's not that What a Girl Wants is dreadful; it's merely slapdash, wildly inconsistent in tone and style, and mind-numbingly predictable in character and plot. – Louise Kennedy, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010
