What A Girl Wants

3

This teen-friendly vehicle for Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes recycles every insulting Four Weddings cliché about free-spirited Yanks and buttoned-down Brits. But it could have been much, much worse: it was originally touted as Britney Spears' follow-up to Crossroads.

Count yourself lucky, then, that Bynes - playing an American lass who travels to Blighty to meet the dad she's never known (Colin Firth) - has enough winning charm to steer us through this cutesy fish-out-of-water fantasy. Insufferably twee, nonetheless.
