It goes without saying that Transformers: Dark of the Moon will win the box office over the fourth of July weekend. But, being as the audience for that film is primarily young men, Hollywood is wisely counter-programming. For adults, they’ve got Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts in Larry Crowne and for young girls, there’s Monte Carlo.
Monte Carlo stars Disney teen-sensation Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy (the last two both from Gossip Girl) as three American friends who go to Paris only to have Gomez mistaken for a wealthy British party girl. Their penny-pinching vacation then becomes a first class whirlwind trip through Europe complete with shopping sprees, boys, and all those other things that appear in every other Disney Channel movie like this.

Check out the trailer for the July 1 release after the break. Read More »
