As we head into the last two months of the year, we're in need of some guaranteed enjoyment. Enter The Princess Diaries, wherein 15 year old Mia finds out - and detests - that she's the princess of a fictional European nation called Genovia.

Now, we have questions (would the world really be interested in such a small country? Also: why does it have such a tiny banquet hall?). Overall though we're mostly interested in the small stakes and unconventional family structure of the book, as well as how very Garry Marshall (ie: rom com) the film is.

Plus: why we love Julie Andrews and Fat Louie, the cat. Oh, and Joe forgets Brenna’s inability to recognize pop culture figures (confession: Francis Ford Coppola is Robert Schwartzman’s *uncle*, not grandfather).
