Monte Carlo is a movie about love, friendship and finding yourself. There are three main characters of the movie. The main character, played by Selena Gomez has just graduated from high school and wants to take a trip to Paris, for the summer to celebrate. Her best friend, is slightly older and works at a diner. She is having boyfriend problems, and decides since her man can not commit to her, she will go along with her best friend to Paris. The big twist comes when the parents agree to the plan of fun, with one exception. The more mature older step sister has to go along also. This causes major problems, since the two are nothing alike. Actually they are polar opposites. One is happy go lucky and free spirited. The other is uptight and stays on a straight path. The girls finally agree that maybe the trip will do them some good. Since this will be the most they have been around each other since their parents' marriage. The trio sets out on their trip to Paris, full of joy and wonder of the unknown. They land and realize, there is so much that they want to do. They decide to put their best foot forward and all get along. They spend the day doing some sight seeing. While doing this, they accidentally miss the bus that is to be their tour guide. This leaves them stranded in a foreign country with very little knowledge of the language spoken. Just like that their trip turns upside down. To make matters worse, it starts pouring rain, and they have no idea how to even start to get back to their hotel. They go into a hotel to seek shelter and dry off and use the restroom. While in the restroom, the unthinkable happens. The main character looks just like a very famous heiress. When leaving, the hotel clerks mistake her for the heiress, and the girls decide to see where it leads them. They enjoy an elaborate suite and the biggest lobster feast they have seen. They continue to play the part for a while and end up in Monte Carlo as impersonators. The stepsisters actually learn to get along with each other and realize that they have things in common. They learn things about themselves that they never knew and learn to live in the moment and care for others, even though their scheme is realized.
