The Princess Diaries

Adapted for the screen from Meg Cabot’s young-adult novel “The Princess Diaries” makes more than one nod to “My Fair Lady.” The story: Typical San Francisco teen Mia (Anne Hathaway) discovers she’s really a princess and must contend with the royal tutorial of her grandmother, Queen Clarisse Renaldi (Julie Andrews). Hathaway herself has appeared in promotional stills posed a la Hepburn in a tiara and elbow-length gloves — although the tweeners who may go to see this movie probably have never heard of Eliza Doolittle. No matter, the transformation from glasses-wearing nerd to sparkling Princess of Genovia seems draw enough, especially when you put the story in the hands of Garry Marshall, who last transformed Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman.”
