It looks like a Disney movie, with the same old boring plot.

Selena is a nice girl and all, but she’s a terrible actress. The good news is that her primary fanbase is very young and does not care. The bad news is that she cannot continue to appeal to this young fanbase forever. She will not be able to spend the rest of her life selling herself to an audience of kids and ‘tweeners. Selena is her generation’s version of Hilary Duff. Things have not gone well for Hilary Duff as an adult actress, although Hilary has found success in other avenues of life. Just not acting. Because Hilary is a bad actress. And so is Selena.

Selena is not a bad actress, she’s a fine actress. You obviously know nothing about acting. Selena will do great. She has beauty and talent.

Selena is an okay actress, but she can only play one role. There’s no dimension to her acting. When comes down to it, I think like most people already stated her career will end up like Hilary Duff. Not saying that she’s not successful, because she is.

Monte Carlo isn’t going to do well, because only teenage girls are willing to watch it. You can’t have a successful movie if only a certain gender and age group watch it.

selena shouldnt listen to them the true critics are her fans and if they like the movie not old people who dont have a life and like to hurt people. i think the movie is a big step for selena and it will be amazing.

Did you seriously just ask if the critics were jealous of her? Did you really just ask that? Are you serious? I’m sitting here in disbelief that you would ask a question like that. I’m sitting here thinking wow, that was a really stupid question. My mind is boggled by the fact of how stupid that question was.

And about this Monte Carlo book being written before Lizzie McGuire…wasn’t it about middle aged women? Because Nicole Kidman was originally cast in this movie.

I love Selena Gomez but I cant believe they would say that. Why would a critic be jealous of an eighteen year old girl. Sometimes I love you guys articles but sometimes you guys can be too judgmental and adding too much of your opinion but that comment you guys just said was just stupid.

That is why they are called critics to criticize hollywood when they dont do good in acting or singing,meaning their talent is not enough for us to waste our money.just like monte carlo,have you seen selena’s previous movie with demi and cinderella story?monte carlo is the same thing,pretending to be a princess and at the end,she was not.there is no challenging role about that and everybody can play that role,so i think her movie is boring because i’m a movie lover and i know what is good movie and boring movie,that is my opinion,:) ;)and those critics are doing exactly what they supposed to do.peace!!!

I do agree with torie. Selena should start listening to critics for the purpose of having a successful career

Thats unbelievable!I think about those critics more as some tips…i think SCott Tobias and Roger Moore have a point but the rest are just some dudes with no others to do just criticize young generation of actors!i mean we need support…without support in 10 years the good actors will retire and the young generation will be afraid to make a step with all those critics….(Just Sayin’);)

Let’s not take it this far…she played in ONE movie for crying out loud and now she’s one of the best actresses? Even from the trailer you can say she’s not even that good…the critics have a point and of course they’re not jealous of a 18 year old girl’s success…it’s even stupid to say that! and there are so many talented young actresses right now that it’s an insult to call Gomez one of them…

No I don’t think movie critics are “jealous” of Selena’s sucess, that was a silly question. But I also think some reviewers are unfair when I read things in a review like “Disney-engineered” I know that the writer went into the movie primed to tear Selena to shreds. She could give an Oscar-caliber performance and would be dismissed by that writer just because she had a show on the Disney Channel. I don’t know if I’ll see “Monte Carlo” or not as much as I like Selena it’s not really my cup of tea. But whether I see it or not I hope it does at least decent box office.

That may be true about the Disney bias, but these stars that appeal to teens need prove they can get adults to watch their movies or their careers will die an early death. SG cannot rely on her WofWP fans or her boyfriend’s fans to put butts in the seats. What’s Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens or the rest of the H.S. Musical cast doing in terms of film work? (ZE did Charlie St. Cloud, but what else?)

This is wrong weekend to prove her mettle (Transformers is out). Good luck making the top 5.

No I don’t think they are Jealous. The critics label movies and some do not catch their eye. I mean they rate a lot of movies poor for certain reasons. I have to say that you have to make the decision on your own if you like it or not. I would never go off what a critic labels, because sometimes they are wrong and it just depends what you like anyway.

This movie was not aimed for the demographics of the critics. Critics love to attack teen films. Selena will do fine.

A wise woman once said, “Why would anyone think acting is hard, after all, Shirley Temple was 4 when she was famous and a star”. If a four year old can act and become famous it means it’s not really any talent worth it’s salt.

I wouldn’t believe these critics until I see the movie. I remember when “There’S Something About Mary” was critcized to the max and even given a one star rating. It turned out to be a major hit! Critics are just people who either like or don’t like a movie. They have their own opinions not the people’s opinion.

Many films have been rated poorly by critics in the run and were successful and the box office.
I am not a sheep and follow the herd, I make my own opinion.

Doesn’t sound too harsh to me. The critics seem relatively kind on her. The movie is nothing much, but no-one expected it to be. Just a fun way to spend a weekend on a sweet girls movie.

Monte Carlo was written before Hilary Duff was born so that’s a stupid comment and you should not say anything if you know nothing.

It is a generic storyline. No one is copying anyone else. It was based on a book. Please do your research before you post stupid comments.
