'What A Girl Wants'
(Amanda Bynes, Colin Firth / PG / 89 mins / Warner Bros.)

Overview: Amanda Bynes plays a 19-year-old New York City teen who travels to London to find the father she's never known (Colin Firth), discovering that he's an upper-class socialite. Of course, her crass American-ness causes copious fish-out-of-water comic situations.

Verdict: In 'What A Girl Wants', lead male Colin Firth stammers throughout like a second-string Hugh Grant, whilst the tender father-daughter theme at the picture's core seldom feels like anything more than another opportunity to alter the frantically changing pace! To be very honest, if this oozy girl's comedy had debuted on the tube, where it belongs, it would have starred Mary Kate and Ashley!! 'What A Girl Wants' is another in a long line of innocuous Cinderella fantasies for pre-teen girls, that features a neverending, squirm-inducing catalog of Yank/Brit differences!
