Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this modern-day fairy tale sequel preserves the lighthearted fish-out-of-water comedy of the original Princess Diaries. Princess Mia is still delightfully overwhelmed by her unexpected ascent to the throne, but now, more grown up, she has to tackle some important matters such as marriage, true love, and her responsibility to the kingdom of Genovia. There are several scenes with romantic kisses, including a couple of the foot-popping variety.

Sexual Content

Romantic kisses in several scenes.


In one sequence, the princess briefly explores a dark, hidden passageway accompanied by spooky music. Her clumsiness leads to several tumbles, including one into a shallow pool. Other mild action scenes: guards fall on stairs; a horse is frightened and rears; and a character angrily stomps on another's foot. The villain is noisy but essentially harmless.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Examines following the rules vs. following your heart and finds that with thoughtful action and honesty, both are possible. Proves that love is not only for the young; mature adults are entitled to romance and happiness, as well. Mia and her grandmother discuss arranged marriages as a means to secure the throne, and there are revelations about both loveless marriages and marriage-less loves.
