Princess Protection Program (2009/Disney DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Film: D



In one of the most bizarre child-safe releases for young ladies from Disney, the bizarrely entitled Princess Protection Program sounds like war porn meets child fantasy but is really a very watered down version of A Tale Of Two Cities as a “real life” princess changes lives with a “common gal” and up and coming (bubblegum pop?) female singer Demi Lovato plays one of them.  Guess which one?


A bore at 89 minutes (or any other link, we gather), it just never works and is beyond formulaic, but it can also be annoying at times and is a wash.  Unless you have a little girl dying to see it, skip it.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is a bit softer that a new production should be, with motion blur that suggests an HD shoot, while the Dolby Digital 2.0 and 5.1 mixes are underwhelming and is all plays like a flat TV movie.  Extras include two small featurettes and a Music Video.  That all equals no magic here.
